The MENTOR Network is pleased to announce that it has expanded its Adult Day Health (ADH) services into New Hampshire with the addition of Maintaining Independence, an adult day health center based in Hooksett. With this addition, The Network now offers ADH services in four states.
“Maintaining Independence is a trusted provider of adult day health services with a positive track record of helping elders increase their independence and be active,” said Michael Hofmeister, Senior Vice President of Operations for The MENTOR Network’s Adult Day Health Services. “We are pleased to welcome the individuals served and staff from Maintaining Independence and to begin serving the residents of New Hampshire.”
One of New Hampshire’s leading ADH providers since 2013, Maintaining Independence offers person-centered day services to elders, including nursing care, engaging social activities and nutritional supports. The center operates two programs, which offer meals, activities and other services tailored to the unique needs of elders in the local Spanish-speaking and Nepali communities.
In welcoming Maintaining Independence, The Network now operates 30 ADH centers, with services also offered in Massachusetts, Maryland and New Jersey. These vibrant day programs help elders with complex medical or rehabilitative needs remain in their homes or with family instead of requiring higher levels of care such as nursing homes. The programs offer opportunities for socialization and independent living skill-building, as well as other supports tailored to participants’ unique needs including rehabilitation, transportation, nutritious meals and case management.
Celebrating Community. Supporting Independence.
The Network’s Adult Day Health centers operate as culturally-based community centers serving elders from a wide range of cultures, including Cape Verdean, Haitian, Russian, Chinese and Indian. The centers offer bilingual staff, meals prepared to participants’ cultural needs, and social activities designed to help participants feel connected to their home cultures.
