It’s truly amazing how the little things we take for granted mean so much when you can’t do them. I’ve been on several ARDC calls to help some less agile person to replace some light bulbs, get up on a ladder to install new batteries in smoke detectors, etc. Just a few minutes of my time—and a bit more to enjoy the visit and kibbutz—that brings relief and happiness to another person, while giving me a feeling of fulfillment. Thanks ARDC for these experiences and your very smoothly run, generous organization.
I was looking for an organization that could help me and my neighbors, as we age, to stay independent and involved in our community. I found Aging Resources of Douglas County. There is so much generosity of spirit, along with a can-do spirit that supports members and volunteers alike. And the range of available services is comprehensive.
This organization is a very valuable asset to the community, especially for those of us who need a little help from very friendly volunteers and staff.
I started out by volunteer driving a number of clients of ARDC. Then I met Bev, a woman who could no longer drive, couldn't see well, and had a hard time with Proper Nouns. But.. she is the dearest, sweetest woman and someone I am proud to call my friend. Every time I leave from a trip, it is I who am uplifted and made joyous. Aging Resources takes care of the big stuff, like recording my miles and places stopped: I get to have the fun part!
The staff is so incredibly friendly, helpful, and passionate about what they do. I cannot imagine a Douglas County without Aging Resources. The work they do has such an incredible impact on this community, and it just keeps improving as time goes on. Thank you, ARDC, for changing and improving the quality of life of Colorado's population. This organization should be a nationwide model for effective aging resources.
As a teacher in Douglas County, we have partnered with ARDC and it has been a wonderful learning experience for the kids! The resources and support that ARDC offers their community is so inspirational and shows the kids that they really can make a difference in their world! Highly recommend this nonprofit and fully support their vision!!
THANKS SO MUCH ARDC! Words truly cannot even begin to relay ALL of the AMAZING and INCREDIBLE things about how much ARDC impacts lives daily! Karie and the ENTIRE STAFF are so caring, professional, thoughtful and even though the list goes on and on the best part of ARDC is they are family! As a fuIl-time wheelchair user I have been so blessed to be able to receive rides from ARDC for a few years now and it has given me such freedom and independence! They have wonderful drivers and to have the opportunity to be able to go to the places I need to (Dr appointments, grocery store, etc) like everyone else is something I can never tell ARDC thanks enough for!
ARDC changes lives through their numerous outreach programs and amazing willingness to be such a present part and help to the community!
THANK YOU ARDC for being such an incredible nonprofit and for helping so many remain independent! You have and continually make a gigantic difference for me and everyone else! THANKS THANKS THANKS!!!
Aging Resources of Douglas County is the only Countywide non-profit assisting vulnerable older adults. The staff and volunteers have hearts for service and I would be comfortable having them assist my mother or grandmother. ARDC cares more about their clients and their well-being then they do anything else. They are the BEST!
Aging Resources of Douglas County has an exceptional reputation within the community as an excellent support to connect older adults and caregivers to necessary support to lead health, happy and independent lives.
Aging Resources of Douglas County is our go-to resource for Information and services in Douglas County and the south part of the Denver Metro area!

We love working with Aging Resources of Douglas County and have been partnered with them for the last few years at our church. We coordinate regular opportunities for people in our community to serve through their organization, and we love their commitment to the seniors in our community.
We have the privilege of working alongside of Karie at ARDC and have for 5 years. Their mission and dedication to serve is one of a kind. The senior community is treated with dignity and respect by their outstanding volunteers. Karie's heart is felt thru the whole team!
