Welcome to RSVP Suffolk!
RSVP's mission is to provide diverse volunteer opportunities for people 55 and older. RSVP supports Older Americans who wish to remain active and make a difference in their communities.
We hope you all had a good time at our 2014 Annual Tribute Day which took place on Tuesday, September 16 th. Photos of this wonderful day are on the website in "Community Notes and Events." It may seem early, but please mark your calendars for Tribute Day 2015 which will take place on Wednesday, September 16, 2015. The event will again be held at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook. Volunteers with at least 50 hours of service will be invited to this interesting and fun-filled event.
RSVP is pleased and excited to announce a new program funded by Suffolk County Office For the Aging – Health Insurance Information Counseling Assistance Program also known as HIICAP. So many seniors are confused by their Medicare coverage, and RSVP sees this as a volunteer opportunity that can make a huge difference in an older person’s life. RSVP offers training and mentoring by other “seasoned” HIICAP counselors to be able to guide the choices that need to be made. We need your help -- sometimes answering the information helpline in the Smithtown office and other times providing guidance at local libraries.
For more information about this new and rewarding volunteer position, please call RSVP’s HIICAP Coordinator Maryflorence Brennan at 631-979-9490 x14.
If you have questions about Medicare, call the Information Line at 631-979-9490 x18. A counselor will return your call.
