All of the RSVP volunteers are 55 years of age and older and do fantastic things for Marshall County, Kansas. The main focus for the volunteers is keeping elderly people in their homes longer; without the need to move into nursing facilities. The volunteers do this by delivering Meals on Wheels and Freezer Meals to elderly, home-bound and disabled individuals; providing grocery shopping for this same population and delivering the groceries to their homes. Other means of assistance comes in the way of Medicare counseling and helping the beneficiaries make the decision on choosing Medicare Part D prescription insurance. One RSVP volunteer is the only unpaid Affordable Care Act Navigator in the county.
