Branch County Commission on Aging provides rides to medical appointments by volunteer drivers who use BCCOA’s van to transport clients. A van with wheelchair-ramp capabilities is also available. The service is provided on a first-come, first-served basis so it is recommended riders call as far in advance as possible to schedule rides. The driver picks up the rider at home, transports to the medical appointment, then transports back home when done. This service is available for medical appointments both within the county and outside the county.
