Dear Residents and Visitors:

We are pleased to publish this fifth edition of the Las Vegas Disability Pocket Guide — A Directory of Resources for Disabled Residents & Visitors.

Las Vegas offers many opportunities and resources for the disability community that are not always easy to locate. Our aim in publishing this guide is to compile a single source of information covering a full spectrum of services and products designed to meet the needs of the growing disability community. To that end, it is our goal to address not only the most basic needs of any individual — able-bodied or disabled — to live an independent and productive life, but also to offer a variety of opportunities that broaden their horizons and enrich life beyond the daily routine.

This guide is the culmination of many hours of hard work on the part of Southern Nevada Center for Independent Living volunteers and staff, many of whom have disabilities themselves and, as a result, offered invaluable input regarding the content and format. While we have made every effort possible to present a comprehensive directory, we may have overlooked some important resources in the community; for that we apologize and welcome your input for specific additions in future editions. We also welcome and encourage your general feedback on the usefulness of the Pocket Guide. We are confident that, together, we can improve the quality of life in southern Nevada for our disabled citizens and visitors.

Sincerely,

Mary Evilsizer, Executive Director

Southern Nevada Center for Independent Living

About SNCIL


Southern Nevada Center for Independent Living (SNCIL) is a Las Vegas-based non-profit organization serving nearly 4,000 disabled residents in southern Nevada. Any individual whose significant disability is creating a barrier toward independent living in the family, community or workplace, may receive services from SNCIL — including information and referral, independent living skills training, peer counseling, advocacy, benefits counseling, adaptive equipment, housing and transportation, Americans with Disabilities (ADA) technical assistance and public awareness and community education. The majority of board members and staff are individuals with severe disabilities, bringing special knowledge and insight to addressing the needs of the community they serve.

SNCIL serves the disability community throughout southern Nevada from two locations: one in Las Vegas serving the metropolitan area and one in North Las Vegas serving that city as well as rural southern Nevada. Funding for SNCIL programs is provided through grants from the Department of Education Rehabilitation Service Administration, fees for services, and donations.

Disabled Parking

continued on next page...


Disabled parking spaces allow individuals with disabilities the opportunity to access the same businesses and facilities the general population enjoys. It's a matter of equal rights, and everyone can help by knowing a few facts.

• A person with a disability must meet defined physical limitations in order to qualify to receive a disabled license plate or placard.
• A person with a permanent disability qualifying him or her for disabled plates/placards can obtain permanent designation as disabled by the DMV with a physician's certification.
• Disabled license plates and placards are to be used only by the person certified as being disabled, or by a person who is actually in the process of transporting the disabled person. (Plates/placards are assigned to people, not cars.) Violation of this privilege carries a fine of $100 for the first offense.
• The law requires a minimum of one disabled parking space for every 25 spaces, located near the closest accessible entrance.
• There must be at least one "van accessible" disabled parking space for every 8 disabled spaces. When other disabled spaces are available, vanaccessible spaces should be left open for vans equipped with wheelchair lifts. These spaces are an absolute necessity for liftequipped vans. It is a simple courtesy to leave them open for those people needing them most.
• Van-accessible disabled parking spaces (whether or not they are marked as such) are divided by striped pavement, defining the room required for a person in a wheelchair to enter and exit a van. The law prohibits anyone — even those with valid disabled plates/placards — from parking in striped areas.
• According to NRS 482.383, any person who violates the disabled parking privilege shall be fined: $100 minimum for the first offense, $250 minimum for the second offense, and $500-1000 for the third and subsequent offenses.

(The information above is also available in a small pamphlet distributed by SNCIL. "Courtesy reminders" for cars illegally parked in disabled spaces are also available for anyone requesting them. For brochures or reminders, contact SNCIL, and help spread the word.)

Disabled Parking


While progress is clearly being made in the parking accommodations made available by local businesses, abuse of disabled parking privileges continues to be a problem. Consequently, NRS 484.813 was recently enacted by the State of Nevada authorizing private enforcement of disabled parking laws. The Nevada Revised Statute allows private citizens appointed and trained by local law enforcement agencies to issue citations to individuals illegally parked in disabled parking spaces. In addition to receiving training, these volunteers are provided with the appropriate equipment needed to issue citations, including uniforms, cellular telephones and books of traffic citations. A citation issued by a volunteer carries the same force and effect as a citation issued by a police officer.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (Metro) has recently implemented such a volunteer program and other local police departments are developing volunteer enforcement programs. For more information or an application for the Metro volunteer program, contact SNCIL, or Metro at (702) 2294304. Additionally, Nevadans for Equal Access offers services aimed at ensuring compliance with ADA parking requirements on the part of businesses.

Most, if not all, of the major car rental companies (e.g. Hertz, Avis, National, Enterprise, etc.) offer 2door and 4-door cars with hand controls. Some rental companies in Las Vegas maintain vehicles permanently equipped with these assistive devices, while others install and remove the equipment as needed. In many cases, cars equipped with hand controls may be obtained on short notice (within 24 hours or less); however, advance reservations are advised whenever possible to ensure availability. Liftequipped vans are generally not as readily available as adapted cars; the following listing provides information on vans available for rent. In all cases — when renting a car or van — the driver should supply his or her own disabled parking permit, as the rental companies do not provide disabled plates or placards.

Gas/Service Stations

continued on next page...


The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires places of public accommodation and commercial facilities to make reasonable accommodations in order to allow people with disabilities to participate in everyday activities. Service stations are included in this category of "public accommodations" — and the following provides an overview of what is required of these establishments in serving people with disabilities.

• Service station attendants on duty at self-service only stations are required to pump gas for customers with mobility or manual impairments who are unable to pump gas themselves. The only exception to this rule is when there is only one attendant on duty and that attendant is required to stay in a security booth in order to prevent public access to the cash register.

• Attendants at service stations that offer both full service and self-service pumps are required to pump gas at self-service pumps (at the normal selfservice price) for customers with mobility or manual impairments who are unable to pump gas themselves. However, attendants are not required to provide the full array of services available at full service pumps (e.g. cleaning windows and checking oil) when serving a disabled customer at the self-service pump.

• The services of a sign language interpreter are not necessary to accomplish transactions that are short and straightforward with a deaf or hearingimpaired person. However, service station attendants must allow extra time to communicate by writing notes if necessary. Similarly, when communicating with customers with speech impairments, service station attendants are expected to allow sufficient time for such a customer to communicate via word board or other means of communication.

• Service stations may not charge extra for any accommodations or alternative services associated with serving disabled customers under the ADA.

Today, the majority of service stations offer selfservice pumps only; and while, in theory, the accommodations described above make sense, it is not always easy to locate attendants at self-service stations without calling from a cellular phone or going into the station to request assistance. This can be a great inconvenience or impossibility for mobilityimpaired customers. For this reason, we have included the following list of service stations in the Las Vegas area that offer full-service pumps, as well as self-service pumps.

Driver Licensing & Vehicle Registration

Drive tests for disabled individuals can be conducted in vehicles equipped with hand controls: test criteria are the same as for non-disabled testing. A special driver's license test is available for deaf clients. Certain restrictions may apply to a disabled driver (for example, daylight driving only, automatic transmission, hearing aid, hand controls, etc.); any restrictions will be indicated on the driver's license.

Drivers must renew Nevada driver's licenses every four years. As a convenience, some drivers may able to take advantage of the Renew-By-Mail Program. To be eligible for this service, the driver must be between the ages of 25 and 70, must have fewer than 3 moving violations in the previous four years, and cannot have any major medical restrictions to his or her license. Drivers receive an application in the mail approximately 60 days before the license expiration date; the application may then be completed and returned by mail. The DMV processes the application and returns a small card or sticker to the driver indicating renewal; this card/sticker must be carried at all times with the current license. Turnaround time for mail-in applications is less than 48 hours from receipt at Carson City. Under this program, drivers are only required to visit the DMV in person once every eight years.

A new program was recently introduced by the DMV to allow certain seniors (over the age of 70) to also participate in the Seniors Renew-By-Mail program. Eligible drivers receive a renewal application, information sheet and physical evaluation form in the mail, which must be competed and returned to the Driver's License Division along with the $16.00 renewal fee. If approved, the expiration date is updated and a renewal sticker is mailed to the driver to be affixed to the back of the current license. To participate in this program:

• the physical evaluation form must be completed and signed by a licensed physician, indicating the driver is physically able to operate a motor vehicle safely;

• a licensed physician, optometrist or ophthalmologist must conduct a vision exam and complete/sign the vision section of the form;

• the physical evaluation form must be dated within 90 days of receipt by the Driver's License Division.

Driver Licensing & Vehicle Registration


Senior drivers who are not eligible, or do not choose to renew by mail, may complete the transaction at any DMV office. The driver is required to pass an eye exam administered by the DMV and pay the $15.50 renewal fee before being issued a new license.

Disabled persons license plates and parking placards are available to qualified individuals, upon review and approval of a completed DMV application form. Temporary placards (red) may be issued for up to six months; permanent plates and placards (blue) are issued for two years at a time and, except in the case of a certified permanent inability to walk, must be recertified every two years for renewal. Applications for both temporary and permanent disabled placards/plates must be completed and signed by a physician.

The DMV•PS also issues non-driver i.d. cards. Anyone age 10 or older may obtain an identification card, as long as he or she can furnish a statecertified birth certificate or other acceptable evidence of name and date of birth, along with proof of your Social Security number by any reasonably reliable document containing the number. Cards are $4.00 for individuals under the age of 18, $5.00 for seniors (65 and older) and $10.00 for all other age groups.

Our Office is generally open 10am.- 2pm. Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Since we are volunteer-run, we suggest that you call before coming to the office.

The Mission of Blindconnect is to connect blind people to other blind persons, to available services and resources, and to their community-at-large. Blindness can be a frightening and isolating experience. It does not need to be. Those of us who have lost our vision are committed to helping others deal with the issues of vision loss. Blindconnect is the outcome of this desire.

Blindconnect was incorporated in January, 1998, by a group of blind and visually impaired persons who felt that there was a need to share information and resources with others in the blindness and sighted community.

Regular outreach through speaking at a variety of community meetings, PSAs and articles in newspapers and on television and attending community fairs has helped spread the message that there is life after vision loss. As the population in Clark County, Nevada, continues to grow, Blindconnect will serve more persons seeking information, referral, and peer support.

Ticket to Work Program

Ticket to Work Program is a Social Security Administration program for individuals with disabilities who want to work. It increases your choice in obtaining the employment services, vocational rehabilitation services, and other support services you may need to get and keep a job.

Many Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries will receive a Ticket to Work they can use to obtain services from a state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency or another approved provider of their choice. We call these private organizations or government agencies that have agreed to work with Social Security in providing employment services to beneficiaries with disabilities. The program is voluntary, and the services will be provided at no cost to you.

Social Security will not conduct a continuing disability review of your medical condition while you are using a Ticket to Work.

The Ticket Program is a Social Disability program that makes it easier for people who receive benefits to go to work and continue to receive benefits.

It allows beneficiaries to pick their provider for employment or rehabilitation services to increase self-sufficiency and reduce dependence on Supplemental Security Income (SSI)/Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) cash benefits.

The main idea of the Ticket Program is to expand options for beneficiaries to get and keep employment. When you receive you Ticket to Work you will have a choice of Employment Network Providers to choose from.

Virtually all of the medium and large hotels in Las Vegas offer some rooms which are designated as disabled guest rooms; and as such a popular travel and convention destination, many hotels offer large numbers of these rooms and a multitude of accommodations and equipment which exceed what is typically found in hotels elsewhere. However, the degree to which Las Vegas hotels are "accessible" may vary widely. Consequently, when calling to make reservations, it is advisable to be as explicit as possible regarding the type of disability and specific accommodations needed — e.g. roll-in shower versus traditional bathtub with grab bars, refrigeration requirements for medications, etc. The following pages represent just a small sampling of what is available to disabled travelers in Las Vegas.

CABO/ANSI A117.1-1992 provides universally recognized and accepted design guidelines. It is available locally for a small fee, from:

Our Office is generally open 10am.- 2pm. Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Since we are volunteer-run, we suggest that you call before coming to the office.

The Mission of Blindconnect is to connect blind people to other blind persons, to available services and resources, and to their community-at-large. Blindness can be a frightening and isolating experience. It does not need to be. Those of us who have lost our vision are committed to helping others deal with the issues of vision loss. Blindconnect is the outcome of this desire.

Blindconnect was incorporated in January, 1998, by a group of blind and visually impaired persons who felt that there was a need to share information and resources with others in the blindness and sighted community.

Regular outreach through speaking at a variety of community meetings, PSAs and articles in newspapers and on television and attending community fairs has helped spread the message that there is life after vision loss. As the population in Clark County, Nevada, continues to grow, Blindconnect will serve more persons seeking information, referral, and peer support.

Call for appointment

HomeCare Dentists began twelve years ago when founder Dr. Kevin Warthan recognized the need for quality dental care for residents of Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s, and other senior care facilities. Dr Warthan has expanded his practice from Southern California to Nevada, and his staff of Dentists takes their mobile offices to our facility clients where treatment is given inside the residences.

Most of our patients have special needs and require dental care where they reside. We go to great lengths to provide custom treatment plans according to the patient’s individual mobility as well as other restrictions and challenges they may face.

There are very few mobile dentistry practices in the United States. The amount of needed equipment and supplies necessary to bring dental care to patients makes a traveling office quite complex. At HomeCare Dentists we have spent over ten years developing the treatment procedures and systems that allow us to bring much-needed care to our patients. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment developed by the U.S. military for providing dental treatment to our troops in the field.

At HomeCare Dentists, we currently service over ninety facility residences for Assisted Living, Board & Care, Alzheimer’s, and Retirement communities throughout Southern California and Nevada.

Our Dentists are highly qualified and committed to providing the best care to our patients. We train our staff in the unique practice of field dentistry and recruit people who are resourceful and caring in the treatment of our patients with special needs and limitations. Our Dentists and Technicians are fully licensed in the states in which they operate
