A   Home and vehicle modifications; in-home care; rehabilitation for people with Traumatic Brain Injury; financial loans to people needing to purchase assistive devices; recycled medical equipment; telephone devices and advocacy support for people with communication disabilities; assistive technology training and assessments; training for in-home caregivers; and an online registry of accessible housing, among other services.
     
Q   Do you make disability determinations?
A   No, that is done by doctors and other agencies.
     
Q   If I have a temporary disability, does Nevada have a disability income program?
A   Unlike some states, Nevada does not have such a program. A person must purchase disability insurance to have this protection.
 
Q   How can I get information on services available from other agencies?
A   Nevada 2-1-1 is a great resource for information about any social service. Simply dial 2-1-1 on your telephone, or go to their website at https://uwayreno_portal1.communityos.org/
