Independent Life

Local healthcare agency, Independent Life, launches new, free, monthly information sessions for seniors and people living with disabilities. 

New Free Services for Seniors and People with a Disability

At Independent Life, we’re focused on continually finding ways to help local seniors and people with a disability to live their best lives. To go further in this endeavor, we’re about to start running free monthly senior services information sessions for the public. 

The programs will run on the last Friday of each month, all day, from 10am until 7pm. This means you’ll have plenty of time to pop in for a visit in between other commitments. The Senior services sessions will be run at our office on South Durango Drive in Las Vegas.

The program is designed to help seniors, people living with disabilities, and their carers to learn more about the Senior services on offer these days. We know that many people struggle to live independently when aging, disabilities, or health issues create challenges to overcome. However, once you learn about your rights, make use of support services, and discover how to best deal with paperwork and other administration factors, you’re more likely to achieve your lifestyle goals.

The co-founder of Independent Life, Zlata Zujic, knows this from experience. She was inspired to open the healthcare agency because of the journey she has been on with her own disability. “I have SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) Type 3,” she says, “an inherited disease that leads to the progressive loss of motor neurons. I walked until I was fourteen years old and have been using a wheelchair ever since.”

Having completed extensive research over the years to find ways to give herself an independent life, and having dealt with many roadblocks and false starts along the way, Zlata now uses her knowledge to help others. “I started Independent Life to assist people with a disability to achieve the same freedoms I’ve been able to enjoy,” Zlata says. 

Now, to support the local community further, we’ve decided to open our doors to everyone who needs more information about the senior services they could be utilizing to live a happier, more independent life. Zlata says, “At the sessions, the team and I will share our knowledge about the various types of programs and senior services on offer to seniors and those with a disability. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the incredible resources they may qualify for. We want to change that.”

During the free sessions, you can pick up tips about a variety of subjects. Zlata says, “Ask questions and discover what you need to know about things like social security and how to apply for it, vehicle and home modifications, your rights as a senior or as a person with a disability, and the numerous free senior services and programs you could be getting assistance from. I can also provide tips about obtaining employment.”

Another big issue for many people with disabilities and seniors is qualifying for insurance. Zlata notes, “Dealing with insurance is one of the most troublesome struggles I’ve had to deal with over the years regarding my disability. I’ve learned the ins andouts of this topic, so enjoy helping people in this area. I can help you to apply for private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare, for instance. Let me put my knowledge to work for you.”

If you or anyone you know is interested in attending the monthly information sessions, head along to our office at Suite 124 at 4955 South Durango Drive, Las Vegas, on the last Friday of every month. On-street parking is available.

  • When selecting a home care agency to work with your loved one, it is important that your family be comfortable with their caregiver. Independent Life Home Care does an excellent job matching clients to caregivers to ensure a successful working relationship. When we chose them for our mother’s dementia care, we were really impressed with the fit!

  • My mother always loved chatting with her caregiver from Independent Life. She was a little uneasy at first about having someone come into her home, but quickly grew to enjoy the companionship and professionalism. Independent Life’s caregivers are really top notch!

  • I’d definitely recommend Independent Life Home Care to anyone in the Las Vegas area who is in need of home health services for themselves or their loved ones. Independent Life’s caregivers are a joy to work with, and their 24-hour care services have always exceeded my high standards.

  • After being admitted to the hospital for so long, I just didn’t feel ready to be on my own yet. Independent Life connected me with caregivers who provided the home care I needed to manage my recovery and keep my house in order. I welcomed having someone to chat with regularly, and felt safer knowing someone was there when I was not yet back to my best self. I’d certainly recommend their home care services to anyone facing a lengthy recovery.

  • Dad really struggled to stay active after Mom passed, I think he felt a bit burdened by all he had to do. His caregiver stepped in to assist with household chores and to help him with his needs, and I think that made quite a difference in improving his quality of life. That companionship and mental stimulation seemed to help him carry on, doing the things he loved.

  • I’ve always been independent, but I’m a realist as well. I recognized I was having trouble with certain things, so I got to work searching for a solution which would help me stay healthy, happy, and in the Las Vegas home I love. I contracted senior care services with Independent Life Home Care, and was able to choose the services I need. It’s great having someone to help me with the tasks that have become difficult, and I also welcome the conversation and company of my caregiver each week.

  • When my mom was sick, it was helpful to have a caregiver available to come in and assist me with the day to day housekeeping as well as provide home health assistance. I really feel that Independent Life Home Care made that time much more manageable for our family.

  • If you are caring for a loved one at home, don’t forget that you need time to care for yourself, too! Respite care is a must so that you can take care of your needs. I trust Independent Life to care for my son when I have important appointments to attend, and when I need time to recharge.
