On Tuesday evening, April 11, three members of PCM went to dinner at Cohome in Morristown, NJ. We went as friends, and as friends often do when having a meal at someone else’s house, we asked “Is there anything we can do to help?” We helped a little with meal prep, but like good guests and friends, mostly we chatted with our hosts, and exclaimed over the recipe for the meal. After the meal, we talked some more, listened to our hosts practice a scene from “The Wizard of Oz” (which they will be performing at Morristown Library soon) and tried our hand at a very hard jigsaw puzzle. A delightful time was had by all!
Cohome is a group home for neuro-diverse adults. Most of the nine residents are working during the day in local businesses, and although all need assistance with some tasks, they are living joyful, meaningful, and semi-independent lives in the center of our community. The phrase “We Believe in Community” is a key part of Cohome’s ethos, and the caregivers work very hard to make sure residents are an active part in Morristown’s life. Once a week, the house members gather for a group dinner, to which members of the public are invited. Contact Marnie Kaller (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the Outreach Committee if you’d like to be a dinner guest and friend for an evening – you are guaranteed to leave smiling!
