Douglas County Commissioner Abe Laydon thanks ARDC Founder and CEO Karie Erickson for her hard work and dedication to the aging population in Douglas County, including his own mother, who has used their services.


Aging Resources of Douglas County (ARDC) celebrated its fifth birthday on September 7 at the Healing Gardens at AdventHealth of Castle Rock.  ARDC is a nonprofit providing free supportive services to older adults to help them age independently.  Some of ARDC’s programs are chore and delivery services, transportation and the companion program.

“We had such a wonderful time celebrating our birthday last month,” stated Amy Pfister, community engagement coordinator for ARDC.  “It was lovely to visit with clients, volunteers, community partners, and donors and share in celebrating all things aging!”

Douglas County Commissioner Abe Laydon shared his personal experience with ARDC as his mom has utilized the services before.
