Spectrum Construction, a custom home builder and general contractor, manages the 109 Main Street building which they renovated in 2009 to accommodate modern office space, the majority of which is occupied by Home Instead. “When Home Instead, approached me about Skylands RSVP using a currently vacant office suite on the first floor, I was immediately interested in helping them out,” stated Donald J. Dyrness, President of Spectrum Construction.
“Several of our clients for whom we have built multi-family and aging-in-place home construction projects, rely on the types of services that Skylands RSVP offers. After meeting with Nancy Hess, Director of Skylands RSVP, we decided that this arrangement was a good fit and have agreed to rent the space to them at no charge for the duration of the open enrollment period” added Dyrness.
Skylands RSVP is an independent non-profit agency which assists Medicare beneficiaries and their families navigate the Medicare system to choose the right options, fill out the forms, and assist with claims – at absolutely no cost. Trained volunteer Medicare counselors, who know the ins and outs of all of the plans, provide guidance in this decision making process. These dedicated RSVP volunteers help Medicare beneficiaries save money, and reduce the stress associated with the enrollment procedure. Call 888-387-9830 to schedule an appointment for free Medicare enrollment counseling and assistance from Skylands RSVP.
