CASPER, Wyo. — A $10,000 grant from the Wyoming Community Foundation has helped Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions hire a new social worker who will serve patients in Converse County, Central Wyoming Hospice said in a press release Tuesday.

The grant covered some hiring and training costs for Central Wyoming Hospice to add Desirae Laird, a Douglas resident, to the team.

“I am very excited to work for an organization whose primary focus is patient care and to serve the community I live in,” Laird said in the press release. 

Central Wyoming Hospice said that expanding its team in Converse County will allow more people to stay home and receive hospice services.
