The Larimer County Office on Aging (LCOA), which is located in the Department of Human Services, is the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for Larimer County. As one of sixteen AAA's in Colorado, LCOA receives funding from the Federal Older Americans Act and the Older Coloradoans Fund to provide services to Larimer County residents who are 60 and older, and to serve as the lead agency for planning and coordinating those services. Included in the LCOA service area are the communities of Berthoud, Estes Park, Fort Collins, LaPorte, Loveland and Wellington, as well as the rural areas of the county.
The LCOA distributes approximately $500,000 year in funding to agencies that provide services for seniors in Larimer County, including congregate meals, transportation, legal assistance and many more. These agencies are referred to as our funded community partners. In addition, the LCOA staff provides direct services and programs to older adults.
