Our mission

The purpose of Countryside Hospice 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 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.  We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and operate on donations, memorials and proceeds from the Hospice Thrift Store.
