Friends of Hyder Family Hospice House was formed in July 2014 after the April 2014 announcement of the closure of Hyder Family Hospice House, 285 County Farm Road, Dover, NH. The founding members had experienced first hand the incredible facility and services at Hyder Family Hospice House and were determined to offer support to help keep this beautiful place available to others.
On September 5, 2014, the doors were closed. Friends of Hyder Family Hospice House made known its support to the Strafford County Commissioners and Delegates, sharing they had reached over 850 people on Facebook who were willing to support this in-patient hospice facility. The County worked diligently to reopen Hyder House and was successful in obtaining proper licensing and approval so that Hyder House would be operated as a Hospice Unit under the Riverside Rest Home, Dover, NH. Hyder Family Hospice House re-opened July 2015 and is in full operation today, providing the love, care and support to all its guests and their family.
