Many of to- day's slot machines offer intense sensory stimulation with large video screens, music and vibrating, er- gonomic chairs. Dear Troubled, It's a great question. Problem gambling among seniors is defi- nitely on the rise. Seniors have time and money on their hands, and I would like to thank all of you who made my retirement party such a success, and a special thank you to my First United Bank and Insurance family for taking the time and effort to make the day a huge success.

In addition, many seniors use gambling as a way to distract or es- cape feelings of loneliness, de- pression, sadness, or even a chron- ic health condition. Some may have financial problems they are seeking to overcome. And some may have cognitive impairment that interferes with their ability to make sound decisions. Adding to the problem is that many seniors may not understand addiction, making them less likely to identify a gambling problem. Or they may be confused or embar- rassed that they can't control their urges to gamble and reluctant to seek help because they think that at their age, they should know better. And even if they recognize that they have a problem, they may not know that help is available or where Has she lost control to the point that she can't she set a limit of time and money to spend in the casino, and stick to it? Does she become uncomfort- able, angry or lie when you ask her about her gambling activities? If your mom answers yes to any of these questions, she may have a problem. To find help con- tact the National Council on Prob- lem Gambling (, a non-profit organization that op- erates a 24-hour national hotline at 800-522-4700. They can direct you to resources in your area, including counselors who have been trained through the National Certified Gam- bler Counseling Program. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, PO.
