SERVING SENIORS in SOUTHERN NEVADA

No Cost Services Assist Seniors to Remain Independent

  Established in 2000, Helping Hands of Vegas Valley is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission to provide free, assistive services to senior citizens in Southern Nevada, allowing them to maintain their dignity and independence while improving health and daily living.

Our services include:

  • Transportation
  • Food Pantry
  • Respite Care Vouchers

Volunteer at your convenience!

SERVICES

We are a community agency providing the following free services to seniors 60 and over in the Las Vegas Valley.

Transportation

Transportation

HHOVV has two Para transit buses that can accommodate wheelchair clients. Rides are provided for medical appointments, grocery store shopping and other errands.

HHOVV volunteer drivers provide transportation to and from medical appointments, shopping trips and errands. All volunteers receive orientation training and a background check.

New clients meet with HHOVV’s intake coordinator for an assessment and must be 60 years of age or older, show proof of Nevada residency and display a need for assistance. Individuals needing services are typically alone and frail, chronically ill, homebound, and/or dependent on a primary caregiver. Reassessments are completed on an annual basis. HHOVV does not charge for these services. Volunteers and staff do not accept tips, gifts, fees, loans or anything of value from clients.

To be added to the waiting list for transportation services please contact Myrna or Nichole at 702-633-7264 x29.

Respite Care Vouchers

Respite Care Vouchers

The HHOVV respite voucher program is funded by the state Aging and Disabled Services Division and provides temporary relief for caregivers. Individuals who do not take time off while caring for a loved one may compromise their physical and mental well-being. Utilizing respite services is one way to reduce stress, allowing individuals to be more effective caregivers. Also, using respite services may delay early institutionalization

Food Pantry

Food Pantry

HHOVV also keeps a food pantry stocked with non-perishable items and delivers a free bag once a month to clients who meet eligibility requirements. Clients must be 60 years of age or older, show proof of Nevada residency and proof that their annual income is at or below 150% of current poverty guidelines. To become a pantry recipient a senior may call 702-633-7264 x22 and leave their name and phone number.

The organization accepts donations of non-perishable food items at a warehouse office in North Las Vegas. Donations are always appreciated!

If you are interested in holding a food drive for HHOVV please contact Lorri Highet at 702-633-7264 x30.

Say HELLO to Senior Dimensions

When selecting a Medicare plan, people have different priorities. Most consider the out-of-pocket costs associated with prescriptions, doctor visits, and hospital admissions. Others may select a plan that’s simple to use with little or no paperwork. For some, staying with their doctor is a must. That’s why Senior Dimensions (HMO/HMO-POS) offers Medicare Advantage benefits to help fit your health insurance needs.

Senior Dimensions Medicare Advantage plan is insured through Health Plan of Nevada, Inc., a UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company and a Medicare Advantage organization with a Medicare contract.

Enrollment Limitations: Enrollment in the plan is available during specific times of the year. Contact Senior Dimensions for more information. You must have both Medicare Parts A and B to enroll in the plan. You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium, if not otherwise paid for under Medicaid or by another third party.

Senior Dimensions Southern Nevada (HMO-POS) service area covers Clark and Nye counties. Senior Dimensions Greater Nevada (HMO) service area covers Esmeralda, Lyon and Mineral counties, as well as designated zip codes in Washoe County.

HMO members must use plan providers except in emergency or urgent care situations or for out-of-area renal dialysis. If you obtain routine care from out-of-network providers neither Medicare nor Senior Dimensions Medicare Advantage plans will be responsible for the costs.

For HMO-POS members, with the exception of emergency or out-of-area renal dialysis, it may cost more to get care from out-of-network providers.

Pharmacy Network Limitations: Prescription coverage subject to limitations. You must use contracted network pharmacies to access your Part D prescription drug benefit except under non-routine circumstances, in which case quantity limitations and restrictions may apply.

Beneficiary information is available in alternate formats and languages.  Please call Customer Service at 1-800-650-6232; TTY: 711 for details. Customer Service hours of operation are October 1 through February 14: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time, 7 days a week. Between February 15 through September 30: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time, Monday – Friday. On Saturday, Sunday and holidays, please leave a detailed message and a representative will return your call within a business day.

About Us

At Senior Dimensions, we realize more than ever the importance of offering  affordable, quality health care coverage.

Over 45,000 Nevadans get more benefits than Original Medicare with Senior  Dimensions Medicare Advantage plans. We’ve been serving Nevadans for over 25  years. A product of Health Plan of Nevada, an affiliate company of  UnitedHealthcare, and Nevada’s first federally qualified health maintenance  organization, Senior Dimensions offers members access to a range of plan options  and services above and beyond Original Medicare.

Programs

Senior Dimensions (HMO/HMO-POS) has a wide range of programs  and services to assist you!
