Dates & Locations

Pahrump: Due to our concern for the health and well-being of our community (patients, care partners, community professionals, team members, etc.), the Sanford Center for Aging (SCA) has decided to suspend in-person trainings and meetings when possible. Therefore, we are changing the date for the Community Training on "Is it dementia, depression or delirium?" and "Are you managing your meds, or are your meds managing you?" in Pahrump on Tuesday, May 5. This training will now occur on Tuesday, May 19 from 2 to 4:15 p.m. via Zoom interactive video technology.

Read a special announcement from Peter Reed, SCA Director. 

Stay healthy and take care. We look forward to seeing you via Zoom soon!

ZOOM Video Conferencing, provided through the partnership with University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, will allow providers to participate at their desks or laptops from the comfort of their home or office. Instructions for computer/laptop participation will be sent via email after registration is processed.

Please register at least one week prior to training.
