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.

Balance Clinic For Residents At Atria Sutton Assisted Living

CompassionCare Hospice of Las Vegas is holding a balance clinic for the residents at Atria Sutton Assisted Living on August 17.

Having good balance means being able to control and maintain your body’s position while you are moving or remaining still. The part of the inner ear responsible for balance is the vestibular system. Good balance is important to help you get around, stay independent, and carry out daily activities. Independence is a big thing for seniors. Balance problems are among the most common reasons that older adults seek help from a doctor. As you get older, many people experience problems with their sense of balance.
