    NEVADA SENIOR SERVICES

    The Adult Day Care Centers of Las

    Vegas and Henderson wish our

    families a Happy and Healthy New

    Year! Our Centers strives to create a place of fun, love, kindness and caring. We would

    like to encourage all of our participants to

    try a new activity at our center. Discover a

    new kind of music, make a new friend,

    create a new picture and enjoy new life

    experiences. We will be making New Year’s

    resolutions and see how long we will keep

    them. Please join us as we celebrate the

    start of another amazing year.

    This month, we will be honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

    by celebrating peace, acceptance and justice. We will be writing

    poetry, listening and moving to inspiring music, and creating art.

    Happy 2019!

    Many thanks to our WYNN Las

    Vegas team of ANGELS for another

    delicious and successful holiday

    luncheon. All the delicious food at

    the Adult Day Care Centers of Las

    Vegas and Henderson was donated

    for these wonderful events with kind

    generosity from Wynn Las Vegas.

    Julie Murray of Moonridge Group, her amazing staff

    and some incredible donors connected to her

    organization helped one of our families this Christmas

    after a tragic loss. Just days before the holiday, the

    main caregiver (a mother & grandmother) passed away

    suddenly. The Moonridge Angels generously provided

    food, toys and clothing

    for this family of 7 in their

    most sorrowful & urgent

    time of need. We are all

    blessed to have these

    Moonridge Angels in our

    Nevada Senior Services

    Family. Thank you!

    Celebrating the Holidays

    with our furry friends!

    They are making regular

    visits

    alternating

    Thursdays.

  • We have Tai Chi/ Chi Kung & Yoga Classes. Tai Chi/Chi Kung &

    Yoga are a combination of choreographed seated or standing

    movement, sound vibrations and guided meditations. These

    practices promote healing and relaxation by releasing negative

    emotions such as worry, anxiety, grief and anger.

    GETTING SCENT-IMENTAL JASMINE is the January scent. In a study presented at the Eastern Psychological

    Association Conference in 2011, researchers analyzed 20

    people as they slept in rooms scented with jasmine, lavender, or

    nothing. Participants moved the least during

    sleep and rated their anxiety levels lowest after smelling jasmine.

    They also performed better on cognitive tests. The beautiful aroma

    makes a classic scented black tea. Happy Hibernating zzz From Readers Digest

    GOOD MOOD FOODS  DARK CHOCOLATE Dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect

    your health, made with the seed of the cocoa

    tree, it is one of the best sources of antioxidants

    on the planet. It may improve blood flow and

    lowers blood pressure, raises HDL and protects

    LDL from oxidation. Look for minimally processed chocolate with high

    cocoa content. According to the American Cancer Institute, "Given

    chocolate’s rich supply of flavonoids, researchers have also

    investigated whether it may play a role in cancer prevention.”

    Meet the Staff Mr. RAMP, Tim Rabatsky has worked for Nevada Senior Services

    since 2011 and is the lead for facility maintenance and RAMP

    home safety modifications. Frankly there is NOTHING Tim can’t

    build or fix. He has an intuitively creative, mechanical mind. The

    “tinkering” started when he was a young boy back in Ohio when he

    taught himself how to repair a lawn mower or a dirt bike by taking

    it apart and putting it back together. His skills and interests are

    endless: Sailing, astronomy, photography, science, vintage miatas,

    etc… Tim was a plant manager for a machine shop for 25 years and has certifications in

    HVAC, OSHA, and computer programming to name a few. We appreciate Tim so much—

    not only does he keep our facility running, he has allowed hundreds of

    seniors to live safely in their homes through the RAMP program. Tim is

    a gift to us all.

    We are pleased to Kevin D, Donald G. and Aundry W. to the Adult Day Care Center of Las Vegas & Palma P, Marietta C, JoAn M,to the
