Nevada Care Connection (NVCC) is our state's established network of aging and disability resource centers, and it has been administered by Access to Healthcare Network (AHN) to serve as a single point of entry of assistance with information and resource navigation of long-term support services for older adults, people with disabilities (of any age), family members, and care providers for the following 12 Northern Nevada counties: Washoe, Carson City, Churchill, Douglas, Elko, Eureka, Humboldt, Lander, Lyon, Mineral, Pershing, Storey, and White Pine.  A representative from NVCC is on-site at the Carson City Senior Center the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM.  You can call 877-861-1893 to make an appointment or to discuss your needs over the phone.  Email access is also available at
