Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services (HCS)

Comfort, Care & Support for Southwestern New Hampshire



Published:

2018 Goals:

Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services (HCS) is entering its 111th year as the local home health organization that provides comfort, care, and support to the people of southwestern New Hampshire. Through a wide array of services — including home care, hospice and palliative care, and community programs — HCS cares for our friends and neighbors of all ages and at all stages of life. As the home care provider of choice for this region, we are committed to meeting the home health needs of our communities using the best standards and latest technologies, while remaining nimble in the ever-changing healthcare and social services landscape. It continues to be our privilege and honor to care for the people in our service area.



Fundraising Events:

Each year, HCS hosts several events and initiatives to help raise awareness for and support of the programs so many rely on in this corner of the state. The Poinsettia Sale and Butterfly Release events which benefit hospice at HCS, and March for Meals — the harbinger of spring that supports our Meals on Wheels program — are our annual fundraisers. Sponsoring attending and sharing our events with your friends and family are a wonderful way to show your community spirit; your support will be felt by those we care for! We invite you to find the most updated and comprehensive information about our public events, programs, and community wellness offerings on our website at HCSservices.org and follow us on Facebook!


Giving Opportunities:

The charitable help that we receive from individuals, businesses, and civic groups strengthens our ability to provide comfort, care and support to people at the most vulnerable time of their lives — it is the modern equivalent of the time-honored tradition of taking care of our neighbors. Donations and bequests from caring community members enable us to assist the uninsured and underinsured with their medical needs as well as provide vital programs that people depend on every day — Meals on Wheels, Healthy Starts for children & families, and transportation services for seniors and veterans. Gifts to support our caring work can be designated by the donor to help a particular program or a certain town/area that falls within our service area. Gifts are gratefully accepted by mail and online at HCSservices.org.



Volunteer:

Visit with hospice patients and their families at home, help with the Music & Memory project, share a skill with the Castle Center Life Enrichment Program, deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors, or use your green thumb to beautify our hospice remembrance garden in Butterfly Park; your kind efforts will help bring comfort to those who are going through a very difficult time. Please visit us at HCSservices.org to learn more about how you can join our efforts!
