Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition

Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition is a community-based 501 (c) (3) nonprofit established in 1992 to solve the critical social issue of older adults living alone without family or friends to help assist them with activities crucial to their independence so they can remain in their homes.

All of VVCC's services to its clients are provided at no cost to them by dedicated volunteers throughout the Verde Valley. Over 300 volunteers provide assistive services that include: transportation to medical and other appointments, rides to the grocery store, shopping, and other errands, business assistance such as bill paying and sorting, and handy person help. Volunteers also provide respite assistance to in-home caregivers and patient scribe assistance during medical appointments.

Volunteers also conduct activities to ensure clients are regularly visited and stay connected through friendly visits, phone calling, and e-mail buddy. Guardian Angel Medical Alert units are loaned to nearly 920 households, helping older adults, helping them stay connected in case of an emergency.
