About

Do you have a car and a desire to serve at-risk seniors in Boulder County? We need your help as a driver for our Medical Mobility program! These ongoing, flexible volunteer positions are one of the most rewarding ways to work directly with our clients and make a big difference in their lives.

According to the Boulder County Area Agency on Aging, transportation limitations are one of the biggest challenges facing seniors in our community. Our Medical Mobility program helps alleviate that hurdle by providing escorted rides for elders to and from medical appointments. As a volunteer driver, you will pick up a client from their home, bring them to their appointment, and either wait or return to take the client home afterwards.

Our clients tell us that having an escort ready and available to pick them up after appointments provides tremendous peace of mind. This is because it can often be difficult for a client to find their bearings after an appointment, particularly if they've had a procedure such as dialysis, chemotherapy, or an eye exam. In such cases, even finding a bus stop or coordinating with a ride service can be a confusing and difficult burden. Our Medical Mobility program is here to assist elders in these types of situations.

Whether you're a volunteering veteran or want to try serving your community for the first time, BCCC welcomes your help. Mileage reimbursement may be available. Please contact us to learn more or sign up as a Medical Mobility driver. Come see what it's like to be a part of it!
