Senior Companion Program

Senior Companion volunteers are 55 years and provide basic social support to seniors over the age of 60 who live alone (or are in need of respite care), have limited access to outside resources, and who will benefit most from social support such as visiting, playing games, assisting with accessing supportive resources, etc. Services may include taking clients to medical appointments, grocery shopping, and other relevant errands where transportation reimbursement funding permits. This program is also a Senior Corps Program and is sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the State of Nevada’s Aging and Disability Services Division.

Respite Voucher Program

This program is a grant-funded respite voucher service to live-in caregivers who are in need of a break. For those who qualify, a voucher of $1000 may be available. Those served are live-in caregivers of persons over the age of 60 who need assistance in most activities of daily living and are a safety risk if left alone. This program is sponsored by the State of Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division. Qualifications and restrictions apply.

SISConnect Program

is a new program (2020) developed as a result of COVID-19. It targets isolated elders who, to remain safe from the pandemic, are at home and have limited contact with others. We have several smart devices (Kindle Fire 8″ Tablets) that qualifying individuals, age 60 and over, may receive. The device allows individuals to access virtual medical appointments, socialize with family and friends, and order goods and services safely from their homes. Assistance may be available to cover some of the cost of WiFi services. This program is funded through the State of Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division.
