Your Hospice Team.
Our multi-disciplinary team is on call 24/7.
Liberty Hospice is proud of our dedicated team of professionals who will manage and oversee your care or the care of your loved one. This team will become an extension of your family during this difficult time.
You’ll get to know each other on a personal basis. Bonds will be formed and you’ll never feel uncomfortable asking a question or requesting something to comfort you or your loved one. You’ll establish a trusting and easygoing rapport with your Home Hospice team.
It’s a team that has one goal in mind: to respect and respond to the unique differences in lifestyles, values, and wishes of our patients, as well as provide unlimited support to the families and caregiving friends of those facing a life-limiting illness.
Pet Therapy is proven to reduce stress and anxiety, help with pain tolerance, promote social interaction and bring a great big smile to a patient’s face!
Music and Memory (sm) helps patients suffering from cognitive and physical challenges by finding renewed interest in their lives through the gift of their favorite music.

Volunteers are a vital part of serving our hospice patients. By providing companionship and just being there to listen and talk, specially trained volunteers help us carry out our tradition of compassionate service to families and patients.
Our volunteers are able to provide respite care for families, offering emotional support and helpful assistance with small errands and more.
