Commission approves $14,510 for a senior assistance program

The Board of County Commissioners approved Monday, March 12, 2018, the sum of $14,510 from the county general fund for the Nevada Rural Counties RSVP Program. 

The funding is to assist seniors to remain independent and in their own homes.

RSVP has been serving seniors and disabled persons for more than 43 years by providing volunteers whose services include assistance with everyday needs such as transportation to the doctor, to pick up prescriptions, socialization, grocery shopping, respite care, companionship, pro-bono legal services, homemakers, access to food pantries, commodity food distribution, personal emergency response systems, farmer's market coupons, resistance exercise training, and providing volunteers to assist agencies to achieve their goals. RSVP volunteers are able to provide these services at no charge to the clients.

In 2017, the program helped 162 seniors and disabled persons in Nye County who were at risk of institutionalization remain independent and in their own homes, according to RSVP.
The request estimates a return on investment of $20 for every dollar the county donates.
