The Caregivers mission is to help the elderly and disabled in the greater Manchester and greater Nashua areas to remain in their homes as long as possible! This allows our clients to maintain a level of independence and comfort.

The CareGivers largest offered service is the Caring Rides Program. Caring Rides works with homebound elderly, throughout the Greater Manchester and Greater Nashua area to provide transportation to and from their medical appointments (such as routine dental and medical, day procedures, radiation/chemo, and dialysis-to name a few) as well as grocery shopping trips. These appointments are scheduled 7 days per week, either a.m. or p.m., depending on the needs of our clients.

HOW DO I BECOME A CAREGIVERS VOLUNTEER
Contact CareGivers for more information about becoming a volunteer.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO COMMIT
The one great aspect of our volunteer program is that volunteers get to pick and choose how much time they can offer. There is no mandatory time commitment and volunteers can assist when their schedule allows.

IS IT EASY TO CHOOSE WHAT CLIENT APPOINTMENTS I WANT
Yes. When a volunteer joins our team, they will gain 24/7 access to a software application, where they can simply click on the client's appointment to accept it. Not computer savvy? That is OK, we can work with our volunteers that have limited computer knowledge too.

AS A VOLUNTEER, WHERE WOULD I BE DRIVING
Our software provides the details of each ride to assure its within a distance the volunteer is comfortable to travel. Volunteers have total control over which rides they select!

DO I NEED ANY SPECIAL SKILLS/TRAINING TO TRANSPORT CLIENTS
No. The CareGivers clients who travel with volunteers are mobile, and capable of getting to his/her appointment with little to no assistance. Some of these individuals may use a walking device such as a cane, walker, or rollator to get around. Since the volunteer may assist an elderly client down his/her fronts steps or lend a hand helping the client in/out of the vehicle, these tasks would not require any additional skills/training.

WHAT TYPE OF VEHICLE DO I NEED TO TRANSPORT A CAREGIVERS CLIENT
Any. The volunteer will gain access to The CareGivers software, which will tell drivers which clients can be transported more easily and which ones may need a certain vehicle (such as a lower-to-the-ground vehicle or a larger car).


We need YOUR help!

Many of our clients rely on the Caregivers as their main source of transportation. Please consider joining our team!
