About Adult Services

Day ProgramThe Hope Homes Day Center is a great place to meet new friends and socialize, participate in stimulating cognitive activities, create arts and crafts, and enjoy trips to local places and events.

Hope Homes provides day services in Stow (connected to our administrative office). The programs runs Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. You can choose to come every day of the week or a few days per week to accommodate your needs.

Our day program also has professional nursing services on staff to monitor your medical needs. The nurses provide assessments, treatments and delegated nursing services. Our delegated nursing services include but not limited to medication administration, diabetes monitoring including the use of insulin, oxygen use and enteral feeding.

nadsaHope Homes is proud to be a member of the National Adult Day Services Association, a national association of organizations throughout the country that work to build better lives for adults in adult day programs.

The Admissions Process for Residential Services

Step 1: Complete our admissions packet.

The admissions packet provides us with the information we need to meet your unique needs.  You will probably need to fill this out with a family member or with your SSA. The completed application can be turned in to your case manager, who will in turn contact Hope Homes.

Step 2: Secure funding.

If you already have a waiver (which determines the level of services and staffing you are eligible to receive), ask your SSA submit the Admissions packet. We will review your packet and then contact your SSA to make recommendations. Our individual-oriented plan ensures that the services you receive truly benefit the client.

If you are not currently receiving homemaker or personal care on an IO (individual options waiver), contact your SSA to apply for an IO, which may involve being placed on a waiting list. There are cases where a situation can be declared an emergency - see your SSA for qualification.

An additional note about waiting lists: reviewing your plans for the future with your SSA is a valuable step. Your SSA may recommend that you be placed on the waiting list, so if your need increases, you will already be 'in line' for services. Your SSA will also advise you about funding if this is your first time applying for services.

Step 3: Schedule a visit.

Hope Homes will review your completed admissions packet to ensure that Hope Homes is a good fit for you. If you are accepted as an Applicant, we will schedule a visit for you to come to the day center. We do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable. We do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable.

Step 4: Begin the intake process.

We will schedule an intake meeting with you, your SSA, and our staff (including one of our nurses, the day program supervisor, and service director). If anything was missing from your admissions packet, it is important that you bring it to this meeting.

Together, we will identify the specifics of the care required (referred to as an ISP, Individual Service Plan). Funding will need to be secured, as it will be part of the intake meeting's agenda.

Step 5: Attend your first day!

On the day you are scheduled to start at the day program, please bring the following:

    • All Insurance Cards
    • Social Security Card
    • Birth Certificate with seal
