The Rhode Island Senior Health Insurance Program ( SHIP ) is part of a national partnership to help consumers make informed health care choices. SHIP volunteers provide one-to-one, unbiased counseling to seniors, adults with disabilities, families, and caregivers. The program is designed to help seniors and adults with disabilities understand health care cost and coverage. SHIP counselors can discuss Medicare, Medicare Part D, supplemental insurance, Medicare Advantage plans, and other health insurance options. SHIP counselors assist beneficiaries in making the most appropriate choice for their health care needs.

For the next few years Marguerite looked after her two surviving sons, who later became priests. It was during this time that she also began devoting herself to charitable works — reaching out to the poor, the outcast, the sick, elderly and orphaned. In this work she was strengthened by knowing that her God always provided, always guided her. She seemed called to make God’s compassionate love known to all. She served the needy with humility, gentleness and compassion. But in her dedication, she did not know that she had done anything great. All she saw was the real needs of the people and she helped where the need was most urgent.
