Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services (HCS)

Comfort, Care & Support for Southwestern New Hampshire


2023 Goals:

HCS established goals for the next 24 months centered on continuing to innovate in all our programs. HCS is committed to investing in the new model of a continuum of care that integrates home health, palliative, and hospice care. HCS also continues to invest in and reenergize Meals on Wheels, Healthy Starts, transportation, wellness clinics and homemaking. Simultaneously, HCS continues to maximize technology to improve care and support employees. Attracting and retaining our workforce and preparing for the future assures our leadership place in the community.

HCS has thrived with over two decades of annual Poinsettia Sales. The 2022 Butterfly Release events successfully partnered with Cathedral of the Pines and joint planning is already underway for 2023. There was great turnout and support for the 115-year celebration of the agency where we honored the past and visioned the future. The Circle of Hope Society includes lunches, receptions and an annual focused appeal for those who have committed planned gifts to the agency. HCS also participates in Giving Tuesday and NH Gives.

Giving Opportunities:

HCS has Platinum Guidestar/Candid status and welcomes general or targeted donations on many donation platforms including: the HCS website, Facebook, Givegab and Benevity. Consider sponsoring a Senior’s Meals on Wheels for a week ($25) or for a month ($100) of meals. HCS also encourages donations during spring and winter annual appeals, the Barbara Duckett Scholarship fund annual appeal for employee-advanced degrees, and the new Aylene Wozmak HEAL Program which benefits and enriches hospice team members.
