Welcome To CompassionCare Hospice Of Las Vegas, Nevada - Live Your Life
Hospice. It isn’t a place; it’s a new way of thinking. About your life-limiting illness, and the way you want to live now.
Advanced medical care can do wonders. But at some point a decision may have to be made — not about ceasing all care, but about weighing the benefits of a certain course of treatment against the burdens of that treatment.
Hospice is a different kind of care, one that helps you and your caregivers better manage your pain and symptoms. So that you can more fully experience the time you have left.
It’s your life. You can choose how to live it. And every day, more patients and their families are choosing to find hope in hospice.
Understanding What Hospice Care Actually Is - Compassionate Care
There are far too many misconceptions about what Hospice Care actually is. It’s been given a negative reputation simply because it’s associated with life limiting illness. We understand these preconceived opinions, beliefs, and misconceptions. Our intention is to help people to better understand the concept of hospice care, as well as dispel any misunderstandings associated with this type of health care.
Hospice is in no way about giving up. Once truly understood, an opinion of hope and compassion will begin to form. It’s about spending time with your family and friends without the constraints of debilitating pain and discomfort. Our patients are not their illness, we strive to improve quality of life and understand that every second is precious. Our team of professionals will make sure that you and you’re loved ones are fully informed and well-prepared for the hospice journey.

National Caregivers Day honors the men and women dedicated to providing these vital services, annually on the third Friday in February.
