Coming in the Fall of 2019...
We are excited to announce that Avera St. Mary's and Countryside are partnering to bring a guest house to Pierre for cancer patients traveling to the Helmsley Center for cancer treatment. We will have our administrative offices and Memory Center on one side and the guest house on the other. Our thanks to Avera St. Mary's & St. Mary's Foundation for their part in this project. The Benedictine Sisters are currently still living in the building and the guest house should be in operation by the Fall.
Each week on Thursday, Friday & Saturday we have a 25¢ clothing sale...watch for the color of the week on the Countryside Hospice Thrift Store Facebook page!

The purpose of Countryside Support & Memory Center is to provide diverse programs for individuals in the community who are faced with cancer, memory loss and end of life issues.
Our programs include the Memory Center and the Pennies for Robert Bed & Breakfast Program.
Countryside provides free memory screenings for dementia patients and support services for their families.
The Pennies for Robert Bed & Breakfast Program provides travel/lodging funds for cancer patients who live within 60 miles of Pierre/Fort Pierre who need to travel for cancer treatment, or for cancer patients coming into our community to the Helmsley Center.
Countryside Support & Memory Center supports Avera@Home Hospice with a monthly donation that goes directly to hospice patient needs in our area.
The Countryside Thrift Store operates on donations from the community and a volunteer base of over 80 volunteers! The store provides ongoing support for all of our programs.
We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and operate on donations, memorials and proceeds from the Countryside Thrift Store.
