Center for Compassionate Care
Center for Compassionate Care (CCC) – The CCC is the counseling arm of Nathan Adelson Hospice, meeting the emotional and spiritual needs of our patients and their families.
The Center for Compassionate Care was established in 2002 under the auspices of Nathan Adelson Hospice in response to a demand from the community for access to low or no-cost community counseling for those affected by issues of grief, loss, anticipated grief, and life threatening illnesses. The Center for Compassionate Care is a separate legal entity with its own 501(c)(3).
The Center for Compassionate Care offers individual, couples and family counseling, as well as support groups, to clients with a wide-range of issues relating to grief. A variety of support groups are also available for children, teens, and parents. See the bereavement services page for more information.
Costs for counseling services are assessed on a sliding scale. Some services are covered through grants from foundations or private donors.
An additional program offered specifically to children who are dealing with grief and loss is Camp Mariposa. The three-day summer camp program allows children an opportunity to meet others their age who have also experienced a significant loss in their life. Camp Mariposa is a fun filled weekend of healing activities and powerful ceremonies honoring the child’s loved one.
The Walter L. Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care is located at 4131 Swenson St. Las Vegas, NV 89119
