Public Policy Statement

LeadingAge Colorado advocates for public policy initiatives that support our members’ ability to provide quality care and a full range of housing and service options. We are committed to providing members with the information, resources and connections necessary to adapt to the ever changing landscape of senior services and care. 

Our Expertise

LeadingAge Colorado, along with our national partners, ArgentumLeadingAge, and the National Adult Day Services Association, have staff with policy and regulatory expertise in senior housing, assisted living, retirement communities, nursing homes, programs of all-inclusive care for the elderly (PACE), home- and community-based services (HCBS), and other matters that concern senior living and care providers.  We monitor legislative and regulatory activity involving changes that are potentially consequential to our members’ and their ability to deliver the services that they provide.

Our Platform

Colorado faces sobering challenges. Legislators and policymakers look to LeadingAge Colorado for solutions. We, and the senior living and care providers we represent, help policy makers confront these challenges and forge sustainable solutions by defining issues and connecting them with constituents.

Since 1968, LeadingAge Colorado has worked, and continues to work, on behalf of its members to support senior living and care providers, and promote options and choices for individuals as their care needs change over time. These efforts typically focus on advocating updates to existing regulations to stay current with new approaches; or influencing legislation that may impact our members in terms of how they get paid, deliver services, or the scope of services permitted under regulation and licensure - all of which are achieved through LeadingAge Colorado's leadership and collaboration with legislators, regulators, policy makers, and other stakeholders. This timeline highlights LeadingAge Colorado's most significant advocacy successes.
