The Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas Inc. needs Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders – SHINE – volunteers to help individuals understand Medicare and provide free unbiased information and counseling.

SHINE is called SHIP in most of the other states in the United States. 

Specially trained SHINE volunteer counselors provide free information and assistance. Consumers can speak to a volunteer by phone or meet with a person for an appointment at community outreach sites. Call the Elder Helpline toll-free at 1-800-96-ELDER (1-800-963-5337) and ask to be connected with a SHINE counselor.

Do you want a volunteer position that is truly fulfilling and mentally stimulating? Then consider counseling seniors and the disabled with the SHINE (program). SHINE volunteers are both active and retired individuals from diverse career and cultural backgrounds. Volunteers will receive initial training, continuing education and a supportive environment with dedicated colleagues.

SHINE is a free service of the Florida Department of Elder Affairs, operated locally through the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas Inc. SHINE provides free and unbiased Medicare information and counseling.

For more information or to learn how you can volunteer, please call the Elder Helpline or visit the SHINE website at www.FloridaSHINE.org.
