With a warm, sunny climate, a vast array of recreational opportunities and numerous housing options, Southern Nevada is an increasingly popular retirement destination. More than 22 percent of Las Vegas’ population is made up of folks fifty-five plus. That translates into an impressive quarter million people. This current generation of elders, mostly baby boomers, is like no generation before. Grandmas who keep in touch with their grandkids on Facebook. Retired couples who could afford to relocate here and enjoy a life of leisure activity. They have the time, experience and knowledge to search their computers for bargains and news. Plus, they share discoveries with friends. For instance, Facebook reports 176,000 members over fifty-five reside within 25 miles of Downtown Las Vegas. SDLV is an inexpensive way to get your advertising message to online seniors every day, all year long! People go to the directory when they are ready to buy. Tell them your story.

The National Silver Haired Congress Nevada Delegation, in partnership with the Aging Services Directors Organization (ASDO), established the award last year.
Frank Pati, a 76-year-old Mesquite resident, was honored by Governor Sandoval and the Congressional delegation as the first-ever Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year. Nominators described Pati’s efforts like this:
“In the past two decades, Frank not only brought distinction to Mesquite and the state of Nevada through his senior softball tournaments and the Mesquite Senior Games, he changed the lives of many seniors in giving them a vehicle to stay active and to develop new friendships.”
Who’s the next Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year? It could be a friend, a neighbor or a community leader. It could be someone from your town or across the state.
The competition is open to all those who are age 60 and older and have lived in Nevada for five years. The nomination guidelines and forms are available at www.nevshc.org.
The deadline for nominations is March 31. The award will be presented in May.

“DID YOU KNOW”
The top 3 things Seniors fear most are:
1. Will I outlive my money?
2. If I run out of money, what will happen to me and where will I live?
3. Will I become a burden to my children or my family?
Seniors come from an era of extremely strong work ethics and the thought of becoming dependent on others, or a burden to their family is unbearable. Many would give anything to be able to stay in their homes and be able to pay and bring the services they need into their homes.
As their “children”, you MUST get involved and start asking questions, so when the time comes, you know what they want, and what to do for them. Start asking, now!
With a Reverse Mortgage we can address these fears and make them disappear and replace them with peace of mind. No other program offers a remedy to fix these concerns. What we can give them is a way for them to stay in their homes, and in many cases give them access to money every month that will help them avoid becoming a burden to their loved ones.
For many Seniors, this is truly a dream come true. Call me 702-845-4632.
