SCAMS! As a Certified Senior Care Manager, I have noticed an uptick in scams lately. I would like to remind ALL, your grandchild is NOT: in jail, in a auto accident, in a foreign country and needs you to wire money!! If you get these calls from your "grandchild" please know it is not real. It is a scam.
Also, do not open unknown links in your emails. These links can allow "open doors" for hackers to access your info.
If you have questions, please email [email protected] and I will help you

Nevada Senior Services will be promoting Boost Your Budget Week from April 12-16, 2021!

A majority of older adults in Nevada only receive $900-$1100 from Social Security per month. Older adults struggle with paying for food, housing, and other needed resources to remain independent and in their own home. We have a team of Bilingual case managers that can help older adults (60+) find benefits that can boost their monthly income. Case managers can assist with applications to SNAP, the Energy Assistance Program and other programs. Nevada Senior Services is inviting YOU to our upcoming events Thursday and Friday. RSVP by calling 702-364-2273 for the events listed below. All CDC COVID-19 guidelines for safe gatherings will be followed.

Enjoy Refreshments, Raffles and Prizes!

Dementia Friendly Home: 4 Ways to Make Things Easier to See

Everyday tasks can be challenging for people with Alzheimer's or dementia.

But small changes at home can have a big impact in making their life easier. As the disease progresses, your older adult will have increasing difficulty remembering, thinking, processing, and reasoning.

The top priority is to keep them safe as well as help them be as independent as possible. We’ve got 4 ways to create a more dementia friendly home by making it easier to see and recognize commonly used items. These suggestions make everyday tasks easier, boosting confidence and reducing frustration and stress.



1. Avoid reflective surfaces and keep lighting even
Shiny or reflective surfaces on floors or tabletops can cause confusion because they create glare and shadows. For floors, stick to bare hardwood or plain carpeting. If floor coverings are needed, use light colored, non-patterned coverings that are well-secured and non-slip.

For shiny tabletops or counters, cover with light-colored mats or tablecloths. Dark colors may seem like holes, so avoid those colors on areas you do want your older adult to use. Try to make lighting as easy as possible by reducing glare and shadows. Add sheer curtains to mute bright sunlight and use brighter lighting for darker spaces.


2. Add pictures to identify things that aren’t in full view
When someone has memory problems, it can be difficult to remember where things are. That could mean they need to open every cabinet to find a mug, open all the drawers to find a sweater, or not know where the toilet is.

To help someone with dementia find the things they use often, it helps to add large, easy-to-see pictures on the outside of doors or drawers to identify what’s inside. For example, put a picture of a toilet on the bathroom door, making sure it stands out from the door’s color. On a kitchen cabinet, put a picture of the mug they always use. Be sure to prioritize which items to label because too many pictures could add to their confusion.



3. Use contrasting colors to highlight important things
Careful use of contrasting color also helps seniors with dementia see things better. For example, a red plate makes it easier to eat because the plate stands out from a light-colored table or mat and many foods stand out against the red plate.

When your older adult can clearly see what they’re eating, they’re better able to eat independently. Using the toilet can be quite a challenge because most bathrooms have light colored floors, wall, and toilet. That can make it tough for someone with dementia to find the actual toilet and could cause them to accidentally go somewhere else, like a wastebasket or the tub. Changing the toilet seat to a colored one (like this red one) makes it easier to quickly see where to sit.

If your older adult has trouble finding an important room like their bedroom or the bathroom, you could paint that door a contrasting color. Or, personalize their bedroom door with a large photo of themselves. That could also keep them from accidentally wandering into other people’s rooms when looking for their own.

And to make it easier to turn on room lights, you may want to change the light switch plates to make it stand out clearly from the wall. For example, if the walls are white, try a colored switch plate, like this single switch or this double switch.



4. Make large panes of glass more visible
It can be more difficult for people with dementia to see large panes of glass. That can lead to accidents and injuries.

To make glass more visible, add non-adhesive decals, pictures, or posters on shower doors, patio doors, or picture windows. This can also be a fun way to decorate!
