Seniors in Service engages vibrant and experienced volunteers to enrich Northern Nevada communities one life at a time.
The Foster Grandparent Program places senior volunteers, 55 years and older, in supervised settings within K-12 schools, public agencies, family drug court, juvenile detention, etc. with the goal of helping at-risk children meet academic standards as well as providing positive intergenerational social interaction.
The Senior Companion volunteers, ages 55 and older, provide basic social support to seniors over the age of 60 years old. The seniors who receive volunteer services generally live alone, need respite care, have limited access to outside resources, and lack social support. Volunteer
services may include taking clients to medical appointments, grocery shopping, running errands, socializing, or engaging in fun activities. For qualifying volunteers, a small stipend is available for services; transportation reimbursement is provided for all volunteers.
Our Respite Voucher Program helps caregivers take a well-deserved break. Qualifying individuals can receive a $1000 voucher each year. Funds pay for an alternate caregiver so the “everyday caregiver” can take some time off. This time off is critical to the health and well-being
of both parties.
