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.
