• Empowering the lives of the low-income seniors.

  • HealthSET is a nonprofit organization that serves and empowers the low-income and frail elderly in the Denver metro area by providing vital nursing care, health education, and advocacy in order to transform and significantly improve the quality of their lives.

    HealthSET impacts our clients through:

    • Free wellness assessments, client advocacy, and follow-up care
    • Medication management
    • Facilitating referrals to primary and specialty care
    • Financial assistance for durable medical equipment, including eyeglasses and walkers
    • Empowering seniors to manage their own health through education and advocacy

    Our mission

    At HealthSET, our mission is to extend the healing ministry of Christ by serving and empowering the low-income elderly in the Denver metro area through nursing, education, and advocacy to transform the quality of their lives.

    Our history

    HealthSET has been serving and empowering the low-income elderly in the Denver Metro area through nursing, education, and advocacy for over 29 years. HealthSET was founded by the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters in 1988, with our initials standing for Service, Empower, and Transform. The Sisters recognized an unmet need in their community and founded HealthSET to attend to the needs of the underserved including the poor, frail, elderly population. Our first health promotion clinic was held that year at a Denver Housing Authority (DHA) subsidized senior residence, Thomas Bean, and included basic wellness checks and health screenings.

    Today, we have expanded our reach to over 24 low-income senior living facilities, and have extended the services we provide to include advocacy and connections to community resources. Our services have always been provided at no cost to our clients.
