Description

60+ Ride provides volunteer opportunities for picking up senior citizens and transporting them to appointments (using the volunteers’ vehicle). Rides are free of charge to seniors.

60+ Ride of Weld County (formerly Senior Resource Services) was founded by DeeAnn Groves. After caring for her mother with Alzheimer’s disease, she discovered a passion for helping the elderly, which led her to become a gerontologist. Caring for her mother helped DeeAnn understand some of the challenges that caregivers of older adults encounter – such as adult children not knowing where to turn for help and aging adults still living independently needing assistance for a better quality of life. Having identified an obvious need, DeeAnn founded Senior Resource Services, which today is known as 60+ Ride of Weld County.

In 2006, DeeAnn applied for and received 501c(3) non-profit status, and opened our doors in 2007, offering transportation and caregiver respite programs. In September 2015, Janet Bedingfield was hired as the assistant executive director in preparation for founder DeeAnn Groves’ retirement. After working with DeeAnn for a year, Janet stepped into the role of executive director on September 1, 2016.
