RSVP Care-Ring Caller volunteers connect with an assigned older adult to reduce social isolation and provide companionship. Volunteers also serve as a referral source for the older adult. For example-if they express a need for in-home help when it isn’t in place or need other resources, the volunteer will communicate with the RSVP Program Coordinator who will make the appropriate referrals. All clients under this program are 55 years or older. Referrals for the program are received internally and from other community partners as well. Calls can be made weekly or bi-weekly. There’s a lot of flexibility with this program! And best of all-it can be done on your schedule, in the comfort of your own home.

RSVP volunteers are eligible for excess automobile, excess medical, and volunteer liability insurance through RSVP. Volunteers that drive over 71 miles in a month are eligible for gas mileage reimbursement at $0.14 per gallon, per IRS requirements. Monthly reimbursement does not exceed $15.
