Personal Emergency Response Systems
Trained Volunteers install Personal Emergency Response Units in the homes of homebound seniors to provide immediate access to emergency services; and to improve their self-sufficiency, confidence, and independence.
RSVP offers two systems:
- Philips Lifeline – Emergency response system that gives immediate access to emergency services. Monitoring Fee applies.
- Freedom Alert – Elders may qualify for Freedom Alert personal emergency response service at no charge.
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.
