A Chance to Virtually Visit Special Places Through Aerial Video

Categories: Care and People & Places.

Nathan Adelson Hospice offers patients a chance to virtually visit special places, like a favorite lake or a childhood neighborhood.

Patients at Nathan Adelson Hospice, based in Las Vegas, are getting a chance to virtually visit places they thought they wouldn’t ever see again. By partnering with Flight To Remember (FTR), Nathan Adelson Hospice can get aerial video footage of a special place for the patient and their loved ones to watch together from the safety of the patient’s room or home.

“We are excited to provide this opportunity for our patients,” said Karen Rubel, president and CEO of Nathan Adelson Hospice. “We know that medical care isn’t the only thing that hospice patients need. This is another valuable service we offer that brings comfort to our patients, as well as their families and friends.”

Flight To Remember uses drone technology to capture professional quality video of a special place for the patient and their loved ones. These places could include their hometown, a vacation spot, the mountains, the beach, or a favorite park. FTR then creates a video for the patient to watch, which helps them see something that they associate with joy and happiness at a time when they are dealing with significant emotional hardship. This service is provided at no cost to Nathan Adelson Hospice patients.

“We are proud to be partnering with an organization like Nathan Adelson Hospice,” said Ashley Davis, director at FTR. “They strive every day to  provide quality care for their patients, and offering this service is another example of their dedication.”
