In 1983, Nathan Adelson Hospice opened an inpatient hospice in Las Vegas, and today the hospice is recognized as a national model for superior hospice care. The Pediatric Program is designed for the special needs of children with life-threatening conditions and their families. Among services provided are: 24-hour, on-call availability of a hospice medical professional; care in the home; pain and symptom management; medications, equipment and supplies; support to caregivers; inpatient pediatric care; bereavement counseling; spiritual care; and psycho-social support services. The Families in Need program provides basic necessities to Nathan Adelson Hospice patients and families, ranging from groceries to assisting with the payment of bills. 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.
