In Boulder County, the population of people sixty and over is increasing at a more rapid rate than any other age group. The number of seniors in the area is expected to double by 2020 and triple by the year 2030. Especially with the baby boomers getting into their 60’s and beyond, there is much more need in the future for services geared toward older adults. In a survey presented by the Colorado Department of Human Services, Aging and Adult Services division, researchers found that there is a substantial minority of older adults that are frail and struggling to get by. In the results, 8% reported that they had not visited the doctor in the past year, with 78% not having a hearing exam. This could be attributed to a number of reasons, but one of the leading factors was a lack of available transportation. About 9% of Boulder County seniors reported that finding transportation was an issue and the same number needed help arranging transportation, while 7% of the population had trouble finding transportation specifically to medical appointments.
