Enhancing the lives of seniors and caregivers

NU-HOPE provides services to seniors (ages 60+) who do not have the necessary support and assistance from other sources.

The life you want.

The care you need.

NU-HOPE strives to enhance the lives of seniors and caregivers residing in the community.

Helping seniors stay healthy & financially secure

NU-HOPE assists seniors in maintaining their independence and ability to remain safely in their own homes.


Empowering seniors to age in place

We work to prevent the unnecessary or premature placement of seniors in nursing homes or other institutions.

Advocating for seniors since 1975!

We work to protect the rights, sense of dignity and self-worth, and security of seniors.

 You can join other seniors for fun, great activities, and a healthy meal at the NU-HOPE Senior Meal & Activity Centers. For more information, call (863) 382-2134.

Agency Update


Our community was filled with true angels this year!

Yes- It’s that time of year when we had the opportunity to help Santa bring a bit of extra warmth to the hearts of others. Our community did not fail in meeting this challenge!

This holiday season, dozens of individuals and groups joined NU-HOPE Elder Care Services in ensuring that local seniors were not forgotten through our Tree of Hope program. Over 150 seniors in Highlands and Hardee County received special gifts that made the holidays extra special.  Most were simple gifts, selected from the wish-lists found on the NU-HOPE Tree of Hope.  But these were personal gifts- selected specifically for them.  They loved what they received. Mostly, though, they loved being remembered.

Our clients told us how much it meant to them… how much everything that we do means to their lives, and it warmed our hearts as well.  Yes, the gifts were important. But just as important was seeing a face… knowing that they, the clients, always had someone to talk to during challenging times… never being rushed off the phone or being treated like a ‘number’. 

Our NU-HOPE clients know that they are MORE than just a unit of service. They are people. We make the extra effort to share with them our time, our information, and our resources. And, together, we have a special relationship that gives their lives meaning.

This is what sets NU-HOPE apart from others.  

Thank you to all of our community Elves and Angels who brightened the holidays for others and who make OUR successes possible. Thank you to our case managers/workers, nutrition staff, in-home workers, and all of the others who work so hard to make a comprehensive difference in the lives of those we serve.

And thank you to our clients who remind us every day of the importance of connecting and spending extra time to develop these relationships. We never want to lose sight of what is truly important to those we serve.

For information on other ways in which you can join NU-HOPE’s efforts to enhance the lives of seniors in our community, please contact NU-HOPE Elder Care Services at (863) 382-2134. Together, we can – and do – change lives…
