HOVER AT HOME
Our mission is to ensure that we care for the whole individual by addressing the six dimensions of wellness: Physical, Social, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual and Vocational. Programs include a comprehensive fitness program, social clubs and interest groups, a resource center, an educational lecture series and Hover at Home Services.
FITNESS - STAYING ACTIVE
To address Physical Wellness we promote healthy lifestyle habits and support participation in activities that foster high-level wellness. Using the core components of fitness—muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility—we make great efforts to promote injury prevention. Our exercise room includes hand weights, resistance bands, a treadmill and a NuStep. This equipment is complemented by The Walking Club and our Strength & Stretch classes which are led by a certified clinical exercise specialist.
Nutrition and weight control issues are also addressed in classes and lectures, presented by organizations like the Health Center of Integrated Therapies and their nutritional series on conscious consumption. Our monthly newsletter contains Fitness Tips and healthy recipes. The Mind-Body Club explores the wellness connection between mind and body with topics like “The Health Benefits of Laughter” and “Aromatherapy to Energize and Relax the Whole Self.”
Many residents are incorporating recreational technology into their workouts with our popular Nintendo Wii Bowling group. The Hover Manor Wii Bowlers challenged the Manor staff to a Bowl-Off and won 2 out of 3 times!

To address Social Wellness we support the creation and maintenance of healthy relationships and community involvement, encourage mutual respect and help build self-confidence. The center maintains an active calendar of events to ensure resident participation and to boost staff and resident interaction. Group activities like our monthly Birthday Lunch, “Hover Idol” and Wellness Wednesdays encourage social gathering, while our wellness clubs address the importance of cultivating social wellbeing. Our field trips and outings to local attractions and eateries are also popular options for residents wanting to get out into the community with friends or have a chance to make new acquaintances.
The clubs help residents to connect with others who have similar interests and hobbies. These social groups include: our Garden Club which just expanded last year’s garden and installed an easily accessible raised bed; the Film Club which recently screened “Father of the Bride” and “The Blind Side;” and the Breakfast Club where residents are encouraged to partake in a healthy breakfast and listen to a brief talk on a hot wellness topic. We also have a Craft Club, Game Club, Knitting & Crocheting Club and a Walking Club.
