• About Us

  • About HealthSETHealthSET has been serving and empowering the low-income elderly in the Denver metro area through nursing, education, and advocacy to transform the quality of their lives for nearly 30 years. Our highly-skilled and compassionate nurses, client advocates and trained volunteers provide free and essential health clinics and substantial follow-up care. Many seniors struggle to navigate the ever-changing health care systems; HealthSET acts as a bridge between the client, complex health care, and social service systems. HealthSET gives the most vulnerable seniors the tools to live independently, which is essential to preserving their quality of life.

    How We Have Evolved

    HealthSET was founded in 1988 as an organization that provided free health promotion clinics to the poor and underserved in Denver. HealthSET has grown to provide expert senior care to 25 clinics with the unique and growing component of client advocacy. We are one of few organizations in the area providing these comprehensive services to this population.
