In support of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month we had a chance to sit down with a few of the team members here at CompassionCare Hospice of Las Vegas,Nevada. Our intent was to gain insight into hospice and the amazing people who work in this field. We also wanted to address some of the common misconceptions associated with hospice and palliative care. We believe that we can truly change peoples perceptions through education and knowledge of what our team does for individuals and their families. We urge you to share this video with as many people as possible.

CompassionCare Hospice Team – Walk To End Alzheimer’s Event News

By participating in the walk, the CompassionCare Hospice team helped to raise donation dollars that went to the research of Alzheimer’s treatment, prevention, and ultimately one day, a cure. It also helped increase the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in our Las Vegas community. Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia. It is a disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but treatment may help. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and more than 5 million Americans are living with it. In the United States alone someone develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds. All the funds raised from the event goes to the Alzheimer’s Association to further the care, support, and research for Alzheimer’s disease.

“Take the first step to a world without Alzheimer’s”.

Lois – Community Comfort Service Dog Bio

Lois is a Golden Retriever who was born on June 08, 2014. She is a trained LCC K-9 Comfort Dog with the First Good Shepherd School, Lois interacts with people at churches, schools, nursing homes, hospitals and our hospice patients. Lois is a dog that brings companionship and love that creates a powerful emotional bond between animal and human. The bonds that humans share with pets result in very positive effects: reduced anxiety and stress, increased feelings of relaxation, and an overall improved outlook on life. Hospice pet therapy, using the longstanding bond between humans and animals, brings joy, humor, unconditional love, and soothing companionship to those on the end-of-life journey.
