Silver Key is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to making the Pikes Peak region the best community in the nation to age. For over 50 years, Silver Key has supported a healthy quality of life for seniors, allowing them to age safely with dignity and independence. Silver Key has grown to offer a wide variety of services to the local senior population—services strategically aimed at allowing older adults to age how they choose, and on their terms. At Silver Key, we believe that “Aging is…All of Us!”, meaning that no matter what background we come from, aging is the one true universal experience. If that’s the case, shouldn’t it be an enjoyable experience?
Below is a list of all the services Silver Key is proud to provide for our older adult neighbors and their families:
HEALTH AND WELLNESS SERVICES
Silver Key Behavioral Health Services:
Silver Key offers compassionate assessments, counseling, crisis stabilization, case management, and training to seniors and their families struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, substance misuse and memory loss.
Silver Key companionship services aim to assist seniors to live better, healthier, and more safely with dignity and independence. Companionship services include guardianship, power of attorney, veterans support and more! Our newest paid service is Reassurance+ offering comforting companionship along with a delicious meal.
Silver Key distributes government food programs through our pantry to help supplement a senior’s diet and improve the health of low-income senior citizens. We also accept food and other basic necessity donations so that we can assist seniors who do not qualify for government food assistance in emergency situations.
COMMUNITY BASED SERVICES
Reserve & Ride Transportation Service:
Silver Key has a fleet of over 50 vehicles that provide door-through-door ADA accessible transportation for medical appointments, shopping, group meals, social activities, recreation trips, and more.
Silver Key has 14 café locations throughout El Paso county, and one in Teller county. These cafes allow for seniors to enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal amongst friends.
Home Delivered Meals including Meals on Wheels:
Discover the convenience of having healthy meals delivered straight to your doorstep, along with a health and wellness check-in from a friendly volunteer.
All ages are welcome at the Silver Key Friends Thrift Store! Our store features a wide variety of gently used merchandise, highlighting a Home Medical Equipment Department to help seniors stay independence while at home.
Volunteer Impact Program (V.I.P.)
This program focuses on new and innovative ways for people to engage at every age. This program not only emphasizes volunteer engagement opportunities; it also encompasses health and wellness, civic engagement and lifelong learning.
