Today, Total Community Options is proud to announce its new name – InnovAge. Headquartered in Denver, InnovAge is a family of organizations that serve aging adults. Under its new name, InnovAge provides a broad spectrum of services to enable older adults in Colorado and New Mexico to live independently in their homes and communities.
“This is a proud day in our organization’s history. Our new name – InnovAge – brings us together as one and lets the community know that each of our affiliates is part of a broad- based, progressive organization offering a wide spectrum of services and programs,” said Maureen Hewitt, president and CEO of InnovAge. “Our family
of nonprofits has a rich history of creating innovative solutions to help the frail elderly remain independent.
