This Christmas the nurses, nurses aides and social workers at Liberty Hospice in Dunn delivered Christmas stockings and beautiful gift bags to their patients. Five families each also received a Christmas dinner basket that included a turkey or ham and all the fixings! These wonderful gifts were made possible by the collaboration of Liberty Hospice employees and Community Care Partners, First Baptist Church of Dunn and Saint Matthews United Methodist Church of Fuquay Varina.
Liberty employees provided the stockings, gift baskets and dinner fixings. First Baptist Church of Dunn provided the turkeys and hams and the Partners in Christ, PinC. Ladies group at Saint Matthews provided all the stocking stuffers and the gift bags!
It is very important to the team to provide the best quality of life possible for our patients and their families,” said Holly Price, RN, CHPN and the Patient Care Coordinator at Liberty Home Care and Hospice. “They are always so very appreciative of the extras that the hospice team provides, not only at Christmas, but throughout the year.”
Kimmie Fox, RN, CHPCA and our Hospice Operations Manager stated that, “Despite a terminal illness, even at the end of life, families can focus on living and experiencing meaningful moments together. It is our goal to not only provide the highest level of quality medical care to our patients but to also provide emotional and spiritual support to their families.”
This Christmas holiday will hopefully be a little brighter for these patients because of wonderful community partnerships like these that can truly make a difference!
