About Active Adult Programs & Services

The Highlands Ranch Metro District and Douglas County Community & Resource Services partnered in 2008 to provide resources for older adults, their families and caregivers. Together they recognized the growing older adult population in the county and Active Adult Programs & Services (AAPS) was created from this partnership. AAPS is committed to providing adults age 55 and better in Highlands Ranch with information, resources, activities, events and lifelong learning opportunities that allow them to grow old with the greatest success and satisfaction.

Douglas County demographers project by the year 2030, one in four individuals living in Douglas County will be 60 years of age or older.  AAPS Coordinator Jodie McCann provides services for Highlands Ranch older adults and families who may be uncertain where to find needed services, social or recreational activities and/or enrichment opportunities. This includes:

  • Referrals to services
  • Information and lifelong learning opportunities
  • Community events and activities
