Statistics show that most baby boomers have a strong desire to remain independent as they age. These hardworking Americans are turning their noses up at the idea of spending their golden years in a strange nursing home. They have an unshakeable yearning to live life at home as long as possible. This factor, combined with advances in modern medicine that are helping seniors live longer, has set the stage for more home care franchise opportunities than ever before.
Research by the University of Alabama shows that more than seven million people in the U.S. need some form of home care. This fact is bolstered by the rising trend of "aging in place."

With flash flood season upon us, officials are reminding the public that trash and debris left on streets, sidewalks and in desert areas can get washed into storm drains and flood control channels and wind up in Lake Mead, the source of the community’s drinking water. Flash floods occur most often in Southern Nevada from July through September during monsoon season.
Simple activities such as putting lids on trash bins or knowing where to report illegal dumping sites can go a long way toward keeping the Las Vegas Valley clean. A handout offering tips and various resources in the community called “Keep Clark County Clean” is posted on the County’s Department of Environment and Sustainability’s website pages at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov.
“We all need to do our part to keep our community clean and protect Lake Mead,” said Clark County Commission Chairman Jim Gibson, whose Commission District G in the southeast valley includes Clark County Wetlands Park, which often gets particularly hard-hit during storms. “Some simple actions such as picking up after your pets and keeping your car maintained so oil doesn’t leak into our storm drains can have a big impact on the health and beauty of our community.”
“Litter and illegal dumping issues often get worse when it rains in our valley because debris gets washed into the local flood control network and ends up polluting low-lying areas,” said Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones, vice-chair of the Regional Flood Control District. “With a population of more than two million people, debris left on streets or in desert areas can certainly add up and impact our quality of life.”
Clark County spends millions of dollars a year cleaning up streets, parks and flood control channels. When it rains, debris left in public areas can plug inlets and drains in curbs and sidewalks and add to neighborhood flooding issue and clean-up costs. Residents living in unincorporated County areas can report plugged inlets and storm drains to the Public Works Department at (702) 455-6000 or online through FixIt Clark County: https://tinyurl.com/4s4p9pu6. Reports in other jurisdictions can be made to the Regional Flood Control District at www.regionalflood.org or (702) 685-0000.
In addition to the Clark County Regional Flood Control District, other partners in the Keep Clark County Clean effort include the Clark County Water Reclamation District, Republic Services, Southern Nevada Health District, Las Vegas Valley Water District, and Get Outdoors Nevada. Clark County regularly partners with Get Outdoors Nevada and other groups to host cleanups at locations throughout the Las Vegas Valley. A list of upcoming cleanups is posted on the organization’s website at www.getoutdoorsnevada.org/events/.
Clark County is a dynamic and innovative organization dedicated to providing top-quality service with integrity, respect and accountability. With jurisdiction over the world-famous Las Vegas Strip and covering an area the size of New Jersey, Clark is the nation’s 11th-largest county and provides extensive regional services to 2.3 million citizens and 45.6 million visitors a year (2019). Included are the nation’s 7th-busiest airport, air quality compliance, social services and the state’s largest public hospital, University Medical Center. The County also provides municipal services that are traditionally provided by cities to 1 million residents in the unincorporated area. Those include fire protection, roads and other public works, parks and recreation, and planning and development.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - There’s a misconception those in the military or retired automatically get dental care, a statewide program is trying to get the word out they can off free dental care to 40,000 low income veterans in Southern Nevada.
Adopt a Vet Dental Program has been around for 12 years in Northern and Central Nevada. Three legislative sessions ago the state gave money to help run the program and to pay attention to these veterans.
The founder, Linda Haigh, is a daughter of a World War II veteran. Executive Director and veteran, Demetrio Gonzalez, moved from Reno to Las Vegas two weeks ago to really push this free program forward.
“The saturation level of veterans in Southern Nevada is double what it is in the North and the need for it is so much,” Gonzalez said.
140 dentists do pro-bono work in Northern and Central Nevada, the AAVD pays for prosthetics like dentures and crowns.
American War Mothers NV approached Adopt a Vet Dental Program and offered them space off Sunset in Las Vegas for one year. That one year mark has come and they will no longer be at that office come Monday but instead will hold processing events at different Calvary Chapels throughout Clark County.
The need for this life-saving service is great.
“There’s 280,000 veterans in the state of Nevada, about 93% of those don’t qualify for VA dental care through those requirements, and about 40,000 of those meet a requirement to be seen through our program which we’re at the 200% poverty level and that’s 40,000 veterans in the state of Nevada,” Gonzalez said.
The VA has several criteria in order to receive dental care benefits.
“What I would like to really press along to the public is that there’s a misconception out there that if you were in the military or even retired from the military that you automatically get dental care,” Gonzalez said.
Some of the criteria a veteran must qualify for the VA include being a former prisoner of war, getting injured on the mouth during service or being considered 100% disabled through the VA rating system.
Gonzalez said there’s somewhere between 1.3 million veterans in between the 70-100% disability rating system and over 17 million veterans nationwide.
Right now 22 dentists in Las Vegas have signed up to help under this program, but Gonzalez would like to reach more.
“There are about 4,000 dentists in the Las Vegas area and with that number if you were to do one – just one the ability to crack down on that number that can’t get dental care would just be phenomenal,” Gonzalez said.
John Lisac was the first veteran in Las Vegas to qualify and receive dental treatment under this program.
“You know I felt like uh, pirate Pete for a long time cause I was missing a front tooth so you know I wasn’t able to smile for a year so it was very rewarding,” Lisac said.
The dental work he needed would’ve costed $8,000 or more.
“It gives us an opportunity especially with prices rising and all that in our economy you know we’re still able to eat well and take care of ourselves,” Lisac said.
The AAVD’s mission statement is ‘Together, we can change a veteran’s life with a smile!’

A state senator is requesting a broad audit of all state spending made under the governor’s COVID-19 emergency declaration, alleging that some spending may have been “corrupted by politics.”Sen.

A state senator is requesting a broad audit of all state spending made under the governor’s COVID-19 emergency declaration, alleging that some spending may have been “corrupted by politics.”
Sen. Scott Hammond, R-Las Vegas, who represents the Centennial Hills neighborhood, submitted a letter Tuesday to the state Legislative Commission requesting the audit.
Hammond was inspired to pen the letter by a ProPublica investigation into a fraudulent COVID testing company that operated in Nevada. That company, Chicago-based Northshore Laboratories, had COVID testing contracts with the University of Nevada, Reno, the Washoe County School District and some operations in Las Vegas, and the tests they provided were faulty. The company’s license was rescinded after a state investigation.
Hammond said he believes the company was allowed to operate in the state because of connections to state leaders, including Gov. Steve Sisolak, which allegedly made gaining a license easier. Sisolak’s office denies any knowledge of Northshore’s operations in the state beyond the investigation.
“If the facts reported are accurate, the contract vetting process was corrupted by politics. Moreover, those in the executive branch have likely not only misled Nevadans but also betrayed us to the benefit of a campaign donor,” the letter said.
“Until we see what Sen. Hammond is calling for, we can’t speculate or provide further comment,” said Sisolak’s spokeswoman, Meghin Delaney.
When the Northshore scandal came to light, the governor’s office called the test failures “despicable” and ordered the company to stop testing. The state never contracted with Northshore, the governor’s office said at the time, but local governments in Nevada did.
Coronavirus Relief Fund dollars are already audited by the federal government, and the results of those audits are posted online.
Hammond’s proposed audit is purposefully vague — a new legislative subcommittee would draw up its specific boundaries — but he’s targeting the federal relief money provided to the state in response to COVID-19.
That’s $1.25 billion in funding sent to the state via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, $836 million of which went directly into state coffers. Specifically, the audit would cover all spending of COVID relief funds under the governor’s emergency order, which ran from March 2020 until last month.
Ultimately, the audit is about Nevadans regaining trust in their government.
“Nevadans distrust government at every level. This most recent revelation of political favoritism and corruption has only deepened that mistrust and enlarged the gulf between elected officials and Nevada families,” the letter said. “The only responsible thing to do is to request and audit of each and every dollar spent.”
Hammond’s proposal will be considered at the commission’s next meeting in August.
“To me, it is clear that this is the least we can do, and anything less would be a dereliction of our duty to the people we serve.”
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Tuesday night Juan ‘Jr.’ Mena and his Daughter Kaylee peered through the chain link fence towards their townhome where they lived for two years. The raging fire early Sunday morning jumped to their townhouse on the end of the block.“I look out and it was just raining fireballs, and all the soot kept hitting and making this pinging sounds,” Mena said.“It just didn’t feel real at all and seeing every one running around and screaming,” Kaylee recalled.The in...
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Tuesday night Juan ‘Jr.’ Mena and his Daughter Kaylee peered through the chain link fence towards their townhome where they lived for two years. The raging fire early Sunday morning jumped to their townhouse on the end of the block.
“I look out and it was just raining fireballs, and all the soot kept hitting and making this pinging sounds,” Mena said.
“It just didn’t feel real at all and seeing every one running around and screaming,” Kaylee recalled.
The inside of their townhome is now covered in ash. Nearly everything is either burned or water logged. However, Mena made it clear he didn’t lose what’s most important.
“I got my daughter,” he said hugging Kaylee.
“It probably took us four hours to get the fire under control,” Las Vegas Fire and Rescue public information officer Tim Szymanski said.
Szymanski said the heat from fire and the strong winds made the blaze spread rapidly.
The fire burned about 10 buildings all starting from the units that were under construction. The fire department said the owners were waiting on a permit to build higher, so that’s why they were sitting vacant for about eight months.
On Tuesday, investigators wrapped up their onsite investigation. Szymanski said that night there were reported fireworks in the area, and also noted that there are often fires started from homeless people downtown.
“There’s a number of things it could have been, but we can’t put our finger on it,” Szymanski said.
However, arson is not suspected.
The Mena’s have renters insurance so they feel like they’ll be able to recover fine, and somehow are finding the bright spot from the night residents in the gated community described as an apocalypse.
“Where there’s an ending there’s a new beginning, and that’s what I just keep telling myself,” Mena said.
There’s a fundraiser to help support the Mena family.

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The Southern Nevada Health District says COVID-19 vaccinations are now being offered to children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years.“There's essentially two new vaccines available for the under 5 age group,” said Dr. Cort Lohff, the Chief Medical Officer at SNHD. “There's one from a company called Pfizer, which folks should be familiar with already, and then the second one available from the company called Moderna.”Dr. Lohff says he’s hopeful most parents will decide ...
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The Southern Nevada Health District says COVID-19 vaccinations are now being offered to children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years.
“There's essentially two new vaccines available for the under 5 age group,” said Dr. Cort Lohff, the Chief Medical Officer at SNHD. “There's one from a company called Pfizer, which folks should be familiar with already, and then the second one available from the company called Moderna.”
Dr. Lohff says he’s hopeful most parents will decide to have children in that age group vaccinated, but it’s still too early in the rollout to be sure. “Today is actually the first day that we're beginning to make the vaccine available to the under 5 age group. I don't yet know exactly what the response has been so far but I'm cautiously optimistic.”
There are also differences in the vaccines for younger children as opposed to the shots for teenagers and adults.
“There’s a slight difference, in terms of the number of shots that you'd be given for the Pfizer,” said Lohff. “It's a three-dose series. And then for the Moderna, it's a two-dose series, but essentially, according to experts, the vaccines are relatively similar in terms of their effectiveness.”
Dr. Lohff said parents should not be concerned about the COVID-19 vaccine having an impact on the natural development of their young child’s immune system.
“We routinely care for children with a host of different vaccines for lots of different diseases. There's no concern that it's going to affect their immune system development.”
“I just encourage parents to seek out the best information they can about the vaccines and seek out the vaccination,” said Dr. Lohff. “It's become widely available for under five as of today. We certainly encourage parents to get their children vaccinated. And then for the older kids, I certainly encourage them to get vaccinated as well. And boosts it if it's appropriate.”
Lohff says the Southern Nevada Health District is now in somewhat of a transition period between pandemic and endemic.
“We're still responding as if this is a serious public health situation. Obviously, a lot of our mitigation efforts have gone away in terms of the restrictions and the different kinds of requirements,” he said. “But our focus on public health is really on a couple of things. One is continuing to educate the population.”
