Mission Statement

Liberty Hospice Mission Statement is to provide cost effective quality services that achieve optimal outcomes. At Liberty Hospice, we promote dignity and focus on quality of life. We help our patients and their families spend their time together in peace and comfort.

Description

Hospice volunteers tell us they find it personally gratifying, intellectually stimulating and emotionally meaningful to help those in need at a critical point in their lives. Many were introduced to hospice care through the death of a family member, but many are new to the hospice concept of care. No matter how they became involved, hospice volunteers consistently confirm that helping the terminally ill through hospice is not about dying - it's about living.
