National Hospice Month 2019 Events

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 get involved:

  • November 9: Short Stacks for a Tall Cause Pancake Breakfast takes place from 8-10 am at the Gillette Applebee's, 1927 Cliff Davis Drive. Cost is $8 per person.
  • November 14-30: The Gillette Dairy Queen will encourage patrons to donate a dollar on every purchase inside or through the drive through. Simply visit DQ at 2003 S. Douglas Highway anytime to donate.
  • November 19: Enjoy lunch or dinner at Fiesta Tequila, 311 S. Gillette Avenue, who is donating 25% of their sales from that day to Hospice.
  • November 25: Service of Memory and Hope, which gives those in grief a chance to remember and celebrate loved ones who have passed away. Event features the Gillette Chamber Singers. Service takes place from 6:30-8 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 511 Carey Avenue, Gillette.

If you can't make it to one of the events, there is a National Hospice Month GoFundMe page where donations are being taken: https://www.gofundme.com/f/hospiceofcchwyo

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 www.cchwyo.org/pillow.

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.
