Nancy Polsin has been an AIMS volunteer since 2000. In that time she has proven herself to be an invaluable asset to the program. Polsin is unfailing in her continuous assistance to Medicare beneficiaries in Missoula County. Often times she will take on challenging cases and advocate for seniors who would otherwise be ‘lost in the system’. Her professionalism is evident in her thorough nature, documentation and perseverance with these demanding cases.

It is not a cliché to say ‘we couldn’t do it without her’ because it is true – the success of the program is directly linked to volunteers such as Polsin, who share their knowledge of Medicare, and set a standard for themselves to continue to learn new aspects of the ever-changing program.

One senior who was assisted by Polsin with a particularly complex Medicare situation, later called to say: “I felt instantly that everything was going to be okay when I met her. I just knew she was going to help me set things right, and she did.”

Polsin has volunteered in Missoula for several years as an RSVP Volunteer with such organizations as the Missoula Food Bank, and the Missoula Cultural Council. Often times she is joined by her husband Jim Polsin.Polsin is a caring, dedicated volunteer.
