The WAWC offers services for health and wellness, lifelong learning programs and case management to adults ages 60 and over and their caregivers.

The WAWC is part of the Housing and Human Services Department’s Older Adult Services division. Older Adult Services aims to inspire and empower older adults to age well through community connection, learning and play. Older Adult Services offers a safe and welcoming environment and is committed to supporting an age-friendly community through work on anti-ageism, Lifelong Colorado, mitigating social isolation and encouraging community engagement.
The East Age Well Center, located at the East Boulder Community Center, will remain temporarily closed with potential plans to reopen in the future. Some fitness classes for older adults will resume at the East Boulder Community Center later in 2021, including SilverSneakers® and warm water fitness.

The WAWC has been closed for general programming since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
