In Sheldon’s Words

My first contact with Central Wyoming Hospice was a phone conversation informing me that it was time to consider moving my dad from assisted care to hospice care; this came as a bit of a shock to me, and it was really helpful that the person who called was patient and kind and answered all of my questions… and also informed me of things I didn’t know to ask.

With my approval the move was made right away. 

I had to travel some distance to get to Casper to be with Dad; once there, I could see that he was being treated with care and dignity by the
CWHT staff.

Dad passed away in the Kloefkorn Hospice Home less than 48 hours after the move. I was able to be there with him those last few hours, along with my wife, my daughter, my aunt (Dad’s sister), and two absolutely amazing, caring, gracious CWHT staff, Chris and Sarah.

It seemed to me from the time I arrived that Dad did not have much time left, but certainly I don’t know much about these things. Both Chris and Sarah were present, attentive, and kind in answering our questions and keeping us informed as Dad’s time grew shorter.

Once the time had come, Chris and Sarah were so gracious and caring… I could not have imagined feeling so much support, and I was – and continue to be – really grateful for these two.

A clergy person was called and came in on short notice to support us with prayers and caring.

I am very grateful to – and for – the CWHT folks. Dad’s passing, while certainly a tough and emotional event, was different and somehow better because of the caring and capable folks at Central Wyoming Hospice.
