a senior and address community needs
Nevada Rural Counties Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provides well-trained volunteers that assist seniors and others in need with lifesaving services.
Our programs include door-to-door escorted transportation, companionship, respite care, no cost legal assistance, Farmer’s Market Coupons, critical food and medicine delivery, homemaker services, personal emergency response systems, Veterans resources and more.
RSVP services help seniors to age in place, remain in their own homes for as long as possible, and avoid costly long-term institutional care.
