Cheshire Village @ Home
invites Senior Center members, CV@H volunteers, friends and community members to a delicious event, our
2nd Annual Pie Tasting Social
at the Keene Senior Center
Tuesday, November 16 from 2-3:30 pm.
We don't want to spoil your taste for
traditional holiday pies, so these pies will be
non-traditional. One never knows what offerings the committee members will come up with, but they sure will be tasty!
Coffee and tea will be served.
Join us for a pre-holiday gathering before the seasonal craziness begins. It is a good time to relax, meet old and new friends, and learn about volunteer opportunities or the services CV@H provides. We would love to hear your ideas for future events and socials.
Our Covid Protocols - mandatory masking - will remain in place for Volunteer/Member services until further notice. When community
transmission decreases we will
review our policy and relax some
protocols, at which point they will
be announced and explained
We currently have 33 members and 15 volunteers. The value of this program to the senior adult community is immeasurable, but it requires the help of many.
It's up to all of us to educate people about this service and to encourage those who are able to volunteer.
CV@H volunteers provide rides to appointments, help with minor household tasks and repairs, make daily wellness calls, offer computer support, assistance running errands, and other tasks that enable seniors to live independently at home.
If you or someone you know can become a CV@H volunteer, please reach out: 603-903-9680.
If you can, please join our team!
Cheshire Village at Home is a membership organization for people over 50, providing you with a single point of access to a network of trained volunteers. Once you join us, one call sets you up with a ride, help at home, social visits, or wellness calls as often as you want. We also hold free social events such as coffees, ice cream socials, and presentations by local experts.
Cheshire Village at Home is an entirely local program, serving Cheshire County and we are not a real estate development nor a retirement community.
For an annual fee of $400 per household, one phone call provides access to those services which often cause seniors to leave their homes for a more restrictive setting. As a program of the Keene Senior Center, the annual fee for Cheshire Village at Home includes a membership to the Keene Senior Center.
Enrollment is ongoing for anyone who expects to need services shortly, or for those who simply want to support this program to ensure it will be available when needed.
If you are applying for annual membership, there is a $200 deposit required,
(for 6-month memberships, the deposit is $100)
which should be sent in along with the application. We will refund your deposit if,
for some reason, you do not complete the membership process.
There is no deposit required for Trial Memberships.
Our membership process is:
1) submit your application(s) and deposit (if required);
(one application per member, two if it's for a household)
2) we will contact you and arrange a Home Visit;
3) you will receive a Welcome Letter and can begin using our services.
