NU-HOPE Elder Care Services provides a variety of weekly services in the homes of seniors. These services provide the basic care that seniors need in order to safely remain in their own homes.
However, life is about much more than just the basics. NU-HOPE constantly strives to find additional ways to enhance the lives of seniors, from providing art classes, sending special cards or gift packages to those who are homebound, or offering community-wide Thanksgiving Dinners where all seniors could gather and celebrate blessings and remembrances together.
Below are just some of the special projects we have undertaken during the past few years, as well as the partners who made the projects possible.
