Bonner Community Hospice,
Hospice is a promise of hope and comfort for those in our community with an ongoing illness or injury that have reached the point of no longer seeking aggressive or curative treatment. We are a team of skilled professionals and volunteers working in partnership with a patient’s doctor, providing physical, emotional and spiritual services and support for the whole family.

Lissa “Elissabeth” DeFreitas has been ‘on board’ with our only not-for-profit Bonner Community Hospice, serving Bonner and Boundary Counties, since October 2013. While serving as a Volunteer Coordinator and educational liaison, Lissa has the opportunity to share the gifts and benefits of hospice for our local community. She has been hospice connected as a volunteer, beginning in 1985 in Ogden Utah, Spokane Washington and Sandpoint, Idaho.
Lissa has passionately partnered with our local service community, through her work with Bonner County Homeless Task Force (T.I.P.S.) and her work with Sandpoint Community Resource Center (SCRC), offering a monthly column in the Bonner Bee, “Neighbor Connection”.
As an intuitive harpist, she offers comforting music and healing presence at bedside for the ill and dying. She has launched her newest CD, “Passage” – that is a compilation of soothing voices of the Celtic harp, Native American Flute, keyboard and crystal bowls. Since 2000, she has authored 7 meditative and inspirational Cd’s.
