From now through the end of November, Nathan Adelson Hospice will be collecting non-perishable food items in honor of Veteran’s Day. All items collected will be delivered to Veteran’s Village as well as the Food Pantry in Pahrump, which serves the VFW. Collection boxes have been set up at all the Nathan Adelson Hospice locations: 4141 Swenson St., Las Vegas; in the MountainView Medical Office Building, 3150 N. Tenaya Way (near Cheyenne), Suite 350, Las Vegas; 2270 E. Commercial Road, Suite A/B in Pahrump; and 1201 Nevada State Drive in Henderson.
In addition, the non-profit hospice has launched a “Coffee and Coping with Chaplain Dan” series at Veteran’s Village. This Veterans’ support group will be held every third Saturday of each month from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the downtown location of Veteran’s Village (1150 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas, NV 89104). The group sessions will focus on various coping mechanisms, ranging from dealing with the death of loved ones and friends to addressing PTSD. WGU Nevada, an online, competency-based university, will be helping to sponsor the series, providing the coffee, doughnuts or other food items for each meeting. WGU Nevada provides scholarships and special offers to military personnel and Veterans.
About Nathan Adelson Hospice:
Nathan Adelson Hospice, the trusted partner in providing hospice care and palliative medicine for more than 35 years, is the largest non-profit hospice in Southern Nevada, caring for an average of 400 hospice and palliative patients daily. In 1978, Nathan Adelson Hospice began providing home care hospice service in Southern Nevada with the mission to offer patients and their loved ones with comprehensive end-of-life care and influence better care for all in the community. In 1983, Nathan Adelson Hospice opened an in-patient hospice in Las Vegas, and today the hospice is recognized as a national model for superior hospice care.
The mission of the hospice is to be the Hospice of Choice, the Employer of Preference and a Training Center of Excellence. Its vision is simple: no one should end the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain. The hospice also is home to The Center for Compassionate Care, a non-profit counseling agency providing individual, group and family counseling services to address grief, loss and issues related to surviving life-threatening illnesses.
