Independent Living ~ Wellness & Activities


Staying Engaged and Active

The Hover Manor Activity & Wellness Center opened in October 2008. Our vision for the center originated from the increasing number of Hover Manor residents who wanted more access to wellness programs, but were unable to afford outside services. Therefore, our programs are designed to be accessible and affordable. Our services are provided free of charge (with the exclusion of Hover at Home Services). 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.

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. In addition, many residents are incorporating recreational technology into their workouts with our popular Nintendo Wii Bowling group. 



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 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. Some of the clubs include: Garden, Craft, Book and Walking.

To address Intellectual Wellness we inspire residents in their pursuit of lifelong learning. As we develop our creativity and curiosity in new ways, we explore new knowledge and gain new skills. The popular 3Rs Club (Recall, Recreation & Relaxation) nurtures the intellect by promoting brain fitness and proven practices for staying sharp and focused.

All Faiths Chapel - Sunday Services



 The All Faiths Chapel hosts three church services each Sunday as well as twice weekly communion services. It is also available to residents for memorial services, Bible study and private meditation. 

Donated by Guided Hands

The All Faiths Chapel was dedicated on April 12, 1991 thanks to the financial support and vision of Cordell and Shirley Richardson. When planning to build the Beatrice Hover Assisted Living Residence began, a chapel was in the original design. Because of budgetary considerations the chapel had to be eliminated. At that point the Richardsons, who have ties to the Hover family, decided to finance the chapel. Mrs. Richardson believes that the financing for the chapel came about by a series of what might be called coincidences, but what she knows were God's guiding hands. The Richardsons' owned a piece of property in Longmont that hadn't sold. Miraculously theproperty sold at the time plans for the Chapel fell through. Pat Meade helped the Richardsons' design the Chapel to accommodate a beautiful 11 feet by 4½ feet tapestry art piece depicting the Lord's Supper.

Although Hover Community may not have happened without the leadership and hard work of the Methodist Church, the Richardsons' wanted to emphasize that the Chapel was for every denomination, so it was named "All Faiths Chapel". Friends of many different denominations donated their meditation booklets. One Bible was given by the Congregational Church, another Bible by First Methodist Church, and one Bible had been re-bound and displayed, as it originally belonged to Beatrice Hover. The organ was given by Mr. McGaughey -- a music teacher of many years and the lectern was made by Pat Meade's son and donated by Vivian Lauck -- a long time member of First United Methodist.
