Other supportive services
Families facing medical challenges often need help that goes beyond solely medical concerns, from assistance with finances to counseling, caregiver respite services to end-of-life planning. As a service to our patients and their loved ones we’ve put together a helpful guide to social service resources in Boulder County. Download it here: Community Resources – Boulder County – CINND. In the guide you’ll find everything from Meals on Wheels to help with paying property taxes, case management, long term care and medical transportation. We hope you find it useful.
In addition, Aunt Bertha is a free website that enables you to quickly locate supportive services that can supplement the medical services you receive through your healthcare professionals. The site currently has over 1,000 resources relevant to Colorado residents. We encourage patients and caregivers to visit Aunt Bertha and explore what’s available.
