Back by popular demand, our lunch trips! We will be heading out to some favorite lunch spots around the Northwest Corner once a month. The trips are limited to 12 people so register early for a seat. The cost can vary but for those 60 years and older, it will not exceed $10!! We will leave from the parking lot of the Congregational Church, 5 Old Middle Street, at 11am and return by 3pm. Details for the trips will be posted 2-3 weeks in advance. Sign up with Erin by calling, 860-491-4673, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the office in the Parish Hall annex building of the Congregational Church. We are excited to offer the lunch trips again. Do you have a restaurant you have always wanted to try or a favorite you’d like us to visit? Let me know and I will do my best to add it to the list.
(DUE TO WEATHER, ROAD CONDITIONS AND PARKING LOT CONDITIONS, PLEASE CALL TO BE SURE WE ARE MEETING 860-491-4673 HOPE)
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!! Please join us on Tuesdays at 1pm in the Parish Hall for games and snacks. Cards, Scrabble, dominos, Mahjong, and other games offered. Please call the office for information 860-491-4673(HOPE)
We are always looking for volunteers to help our neighbors. Do you have time to give? Would you be able to pick up some groceries or medication for a resident in need? Are you willing to offer a ride to doctor appointments? Can you make a meal for a family in need? Would you like to become trained to be a Hospice volunteer? Please call the office 860-491-4673(HOPE) or email email@example.com for more information and a volunteer profile form.
Goshen Community Care and Hospice and the Town of Goshen work together to help our seniors and residents in need to get groceries, medication, and other necessities delivered or through the Food Pantry at the Church of Christ. Although we have a list of seniors and residents who may need help, we believe there may be others we are not aware of. If you know of someone who might need help, or if you could use assistance, please reach out to Erin at the GCCH office 860-491-4673(HOPE) or the Selectman’s Office at the Town Hall 860-491-2308 ext. 228.
The Goshen Community Care & Hospice organization is here to serve the residents of Goshen.

Funds for our programs are received through the generous giving of those who know us and desire that our efforts continue and expand.
