November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Hospice provides
comfort care and symptom/pain management for anyone diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.
This month, Campbell County Health and the
Campbell County Healthcare Foundation encourage you to support our
Hospice services. Donations and memorials support Hospice patients and families
through gifts of equipment, specialized assistance and bereavement programs
for those in Gillette and surrounding areas. Check out these events to

Hospice Memory Pillows
We understand the importance of remembering a loved one after they have
passed away. To help keep that memory close, CCH Hospice
volunteers can transform any piece of clothing into a custom
pillow. Every Hospice patient can opt for one free pillow and purchase additional
ones for $15 each. Memory Pillows can also be purchased by non-Hospice
families for $15 each. The delivery time will be discussed when the clothing
items are dropped off. Learn more at
Hospice care addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient
through comfort care, symptom and pain management and other life-limiting
or terminal illnesses. This care can be provided in many places including
the patient’s home,
Close to Home Hospice Hospitality House, and
The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center. To learn more about Hospice, please call 307.688.6230 or visit
