I have a neighbor who cannot get herself to the doctor's office. She is on a fixed income, and has no money to spare, so paying for rides is a hardship for her. Is there an organization in the Evergreen/Conifer area that offers ride for those in need? I can do it sometimes, but not all the time. She lives in Black Mountain Ranch Estates.

They don't do this kind of thing, but thank you anyway.

I've worked with them in the past and this is what they offer:

You just need a 3-5 day window - did you call them? Did they stop offering this?

Well, look at that! I apologize, my mistake. It has been some time since I worked with them, and at that time, they did not offer this. I will look into it. Thank you.

SRC used to have volunteer drivers who would take people to dr. appts. in their own cars, for a donation. Riding in a car is a lot more comfortable for many older people than riding in one of the buses.

I put my mother on the bus once, and it didn't work out so well for her, but the cars sound great. Thank you for putting me on to this.

Yes, SRC is great. If you explain your friend’s needs, and give enough advance notice, you may be able to arrange for an SUV or minivan. I’ve ridden in the little buses and they can really bounce you around. Good luck!

If she is a Medicaid patient rides can be provided. Please contact Human resources in Jeffco. I utilized this service for my son. They can connect you with a ride or provide mileage reimbursement for a designated driver. Theres some paperwork and a time window you need to adhere to but it helped us.

Do you mind sharing when, what time, and where her appointment is?
