LITTLETON, Colo. -- Statistics show 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their home as they age, but often its unrealistic.

There is a program in Littleton that makes this possible.

They can run errands and they can socialize, for under $40 a month.

Maggie Forester, 96, uses pictures and art make her house a home.

Forester, has volunteers come to her house from Columbine Community Village.

In order for seniors to stay in their home, founder Arnold Snyder, said they need three main things:

  • transportation to doctors appointment and to run errands
  • help avoiding falls
  • interaction

It's all about giving back to Colorado's greatest generation.
