Community of Care, A Special Community Resource Informational Event Open to All

October 2, 2019

Community resources are assets that help ensure a safe and healthy community.  “Copley patients and family members often comment that they are unaware of services that could have helped them during their time of need. Others are familiar with the names of the different organizations that serve the people of Lamoille County but are not always aware of exactly what each one does or how to access them,” states Dean Mudgett, Director of Donor & Community Relations at Copley Hospital. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance with services that includes fuel, housing, food, mental health, substance use treatment and recovery, or healthcare services do you know where to begin looking? You can start by stopping in at the Green Mountain Technology and Career Center on October 21 at 5:30pm and meet the people working to keep our community strong.

Copley Hospital’s Ethics Committee is pleased to sponsor “Community of Care”. The purpose of this community resource fair is to bring together local organizations allowing providers to have conversations with people about who they are, what they do, and discuss the different ways that they can be of assistance.

Participating organizations (and the list continues to grow!) include:

  • Capstone Community Action
  • Central VT Council on Aging
  • Lamoille County Food Share
  • Lamoille Family Center
  • Lamoille Home Health & Hospice
  • Lamoille Housing Partnership
  • Lamoille Neighbors
  • North Central VT Recovery Center
  • Rise Vermont/Copley Hospital
  • VT Dept of Aging, Disabilities & Independent Living’s Vocational Rehab
  • VT Dept of Health
  • VT Legal Aid

Community of Care is a free event.  Light refreshments will be provided.

About Copley’s Ethics Committee
In healthcare settings, ethical questions arise when “the right thing to do” is unclear, or when people disagree about what is best for the patient. The role of Copley’s Ethics Committee is to serve as a resource for those who make decisions about patient care, act as an educational resource for healthcare workers and help increase awareness and knowledge about healthcare in our community.
