How does hospice care help the patient’s family?

An important part of the care we offer comes after the patient’s journey ends. We believe bereavement care can ease the impact of death and the journey that follows. Our bereavement services include support programs, educational information and counseling services.

We Honor Veterans

Liberty Hospice is proud to partner with We Honor Veterans, a program through the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs. As a program partner, we are committed to identifying patients with military experience and increasing their access to veteran services. We do this by strengthening our relationship with local Veterans Associations, providing veteran-centric education for staff and volunteers, recruiting volunteers with military backgrounds to serve our veterans and honoring our veterans through formal acknowledgement ceremonies.

Find caregiver relief with hospice respite care.

Hospice respite care provides short-term relief for in-home hospice caregivers so they can rest and recover from the demands of caregiving and avoid caregiver burnout. Respite care services are covered by the Medicare Part A hospice benefit and include:

  • Up to five consecutive days of inpatient care at a Medicare-certified nursing facility or hospital, where the hospice interdisciplinary team will continue to visit the patient to provide care as needed
  • Counseling and support services for the family

Do I need hospice respite care?

  • Are you physically or emotionally exhausted?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed with the responsibility of caregiving?
  • Are you ill and need time to recover?
  • Do you need to attend an important or required life event?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, hospice respite care could help you rest and recharge. Family members who take time for themselves are better hospice caregivers. They suffer less burnout and have more energy to devote to loved ones.
