The mission of the Hanover Adult Center is to maximize: individual independence, dignity, and quality of life for all adults and their caregivers by providing exceptional day support, adult day healthcare, advocacy, and education.
The caring and compassionate staff of the Hanover Adult Center aspire to serve as trusted partners in care giving. In a warm, supportive, and compassionate environment, we provide adult day health services and day support for adults with a wide variety of needs including: intellectual or developmental disabilities, chronic, or age related challenges such as: dementia (vascular and Alzheimer’s type), Parkinson’s disease, and stroke. We take great pride and find great joy in the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with participants and caregivers that we serve.
Professional and well-trained staff are committed to enhancing the lives of our participants through a person-centered, comprehensive plan of care, which promotes independence, self worth, and dignity. Knowing their loved one is well cared for, caregivers find a peace of mind to enjoy well-deserved respite, an opportunity to pursue careers, enjoy rest and relaxation, or attend to other obligations.
The adult day health services program at the Hanover Adult Center is the best-kept secret in health care; we are your trusted partner in care giving. As caregivers struggle to meet the obligations of ever-increasing demands, we offer a valuable alternative to in-home care or long-term care such as nursing home placement. For your loved one who is unable to remain at home or needs socialization and stimulation during the day, adult day health services provides an affordable option to avoid the downward spiral of inactivity that often leads to isolation, depression, and failing health. Many caregivers feel the stress of being “sandwiched” between their many responsibilities of caring for aging parents (or other loved ones) and raising families, maintaining careers, and fulfilling other obligations and responsibilities. Our well-trained, creative, and compassionate staff offer the supports needed for your loved one to remain at home with family, providing an alternative to institutionalization.
We offer a structured program, which is a vital part of the participant's day. The program coordinators are passionate in their work. They design a structured program, offering recreational, educational, and leisure activities, crafts, music, outings, guest speakers, and exercise opportunities each day. Nutritious, diet-specific lunches along with two healthy snacks are provided daily. The LPN provides monthly health assessments and ongoing medication management as ordered by physicians; she also compiles a person centered plan of care and documentation of daily and/or monthly progress notes. Assistance with activities of daily living is such as: feeding, toileting, transferring and ambulation is provided.
The Linking Lives Day Support Program at the Hanover Adult Center offers day support services for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, to develop the relevant skills that will enable them to participate in all aspects of their communities.
