Home Companion Program
Volunteers provide music and art opportunities, emotional support, socialization, and human contact that is necessary for homebound elders, helping them maintain their independence.
Volunteer Drivers also serve as companions and share conversations with clients to help reduce their isolation and provide the reassurance that there is someone who cares for them, they are not alone, and they can remain self-sufficient.
“You treat me like family. You are all so courteous and helpful. Just to know you are there for me helps. I couldn’t stay home without your help.” – RSVP Home Companion Client
RSVP programs and services are offered at no charge with the exception of the monitoring fee from Lifeline; however, there are suggested donations for services. No one is turned away because of an inability to donate. Not all programs are available in each county. RSVP volunteers do not perform services that fall under professional health care services, such as nurses, aids, etc. We cannot lift, transfer clients, or administer medication.
For assistance please contact RSVP at 775-687-4680 or visit the Contact Us Page for a listing of the Field Office in your community.
