Nevada Ensures Support Together (NEST) Collaborative
Nevada Rural RSVP is proud to be part of the NEST Collaborative.
The Nevada Ensures Support Together (NEST) Collaborative is helping elders stay connected during this time of social distancing.
Find social support in one of these programs:
One-to-one calls Receive a one-to-one check-in call twice a week from a NEST Collaborative volunteer. We understand you might have needs and concerns while the pandemic keeps us all at home. We’ll ask how you’re doing and help you connect with local resources and supports.
We’re excited to benefit from a mutual exchange of social support.
Peer social groups Participate in a weekly conversation with a small group of other Nevada elders who are also staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on your preference, peer groups can be hosted via videoconference or teleconference. All you need is a phone or a computer with a webcam.
Peer social groups give you a chance to get to know new people and share stories, concerns and develop a network of mutual support.
