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 email@example.com, 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.

Goshen Community Care and Hospice was the recipient of the American Legion Citizenship Award for 2021. The award was presented at the Memorial Day ceremony on May 30, 2021. The award is given out annually to individuals who have been active in volunteering and helping in the community. This year the American Legion recognized Goshen Community Care and Hospice, as an organization of volunteers, had done a great job helping to serve the community during the Covid 19 pandemic. It is an honor to be the recipient of this award. The Board and volunteers have worked so hard to help our community in so many ways. We delivered meals, checked in on residents, made phone calls, picked up groceries and medications, supplied medical equipment from the loan closet, helped families in need, created busy bags with monthly themes, and did our best to help bring some normalcy to our residents during the pandemic. Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers and Board members.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated during the Give Local campaign April 20 & 21!! Your support is much appreciated and helps us fulfill our mission to provide services to those in need of help in our community. THANK YOU!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
