Goshen Community Care & Hospice
Goshen Community Care & Hospice prides itself on "Neighbor helping Neighbor". We work with the local visiting nurse agencies to place our volunteers in the homes of families caring for loved ones with a terminal illness. These volunteers are there to provide emotional support, run errands, provide rides to medical appointments and sometimes if needed help with meals. Our Coordinator oversees the training and assignments of the volunteers for the organization. We also support our local seniors by providing a weekly senior social and a monthly lunch social. These are combined with an educational program to help the seniors cope with their day to day issues. Our Coordinator can help the seniors navigate the many programs that are available in our area that can assist them and help make their lives easier.
The funds from Give Local will help us continue our mission. It can be used to help pay for our Bereavement program that is open to anyone in the Spring and Fall. It might be used to purchase equipment our coordinator feels would be helpful to improve the lives of our hospice clients. It can support our senior social and lunch program. It can also be used to maintain the education of our hospice volunteers with yearly inservices.
