Are you an adult age 60+ in Jackson County who is isolated from family or community members and needs help? RSVP may be able to provide the support you need through one of its services.
Please contact us if you or a loved one needs help through any of the following programs:
Do you need help getting to and from your doctor’s appointments? Our volunteer drivers transport senior (age 60+) and disabled residents of Jackson County with no other means of transportation to their medical-related appointments.
Are you the full-time caretaker of someone who’s older than 60? Do you need some time to take care of yourself? Respite Care volunteers can provide you with sorely needed, worry-free time to run errands, spend time with others, have fun, and relax and recharge.
Are you confused and overwhelmed by health coverage options and the wide array of state and federal programs? Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance, or SHIBA, helps people navigate the confusing world of health insurance and Medicare through informational presentations and one-on-one counseling.

AGE WISE AGE WELL
Are you struggling with overwhelming life issues and don’t have anyone to talk to? Age Wise Age Well is a peer-counseling program that serves adults age 60+ living in the Rogue Valley who are experiencing difficulty in some aspect of their lives. Peer counselors are not psychologists, but, after special training, they serve as a supportive, listening friend who has probably faced challenges similar to yours.
