As of December 1, 2015, Nevada Medicaid authorizes the use of telehealth by Nevada Medicaid recipients, anywhere they might be. This means they can use their smartphone or their home computers to access health services from the comfort of their own homes. This is pretty revolutionary, and will allow for so much more access to services for those in rural communities and the homebound. Telehealth is near and dear to Insight Therapy Solution's heart, as we strive to provide access to those that are most underserved. If you or a loved one are facing emotional challenges, give Insight Therapy Solutions a call to schedule your appointment today: 702.685.0877.
At Insight Therapy Solutions, we specialize in working with senior citizens. Many of our elderly clients have varying degrees of dementia, and we see that many of our elderly clients that do not have it, are worried about developing it. The good news is that dementia is not necessarily an inevitability. Studies have shown that we can be proactive in preventing this condition, and these are easy lifestyle changes! Here is what you can do:
(10) Take vitamins such as B6 and E
(9) Incorporate omega fatty acids into your diet
(8) Drink green tea
(7) Drink a glass of red wine once in a while (and it's heart healthy, too!)
(6) Don’t overindulge in alcohol
(5) Get physically active--take a walk around the block, or go play golf
(4) Enjoy a rich and stimulating environment
(3) Keep your brain active--do some crossword puzzles or play sudoku
(1) Don’t stress out

Insight Therapy Solutions is committed to providing mental health services to rural Nevada, which is hugely underserved. It's no easy feat serving small populations that have large distances between them. We started in Indian Springs for this very purpose, and have since expanded to Pahrump. The Pahrump community has been overwhelmingly supportive, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. Nothing like small town support!
