To contact the Senior Center please call: 630-483-5600 

The Department of Senior Services provides programs and services for the residents 55 and older to enable independent lifestyle within the Township through transportation, recreation, nutrition and social service programs.  The Dial-A-Bus program transports residents for medical, shopping, dialysis, and to the Senior Center.  Recreational opportunities from group exercise, art classes, computer classes, cultural outings and extended travel are detailed in the bi-monthly “Club 59” newsletter.  The Stars-N-Stripes Café prepares fresh, healthy meals onsite Monday through Friday 11:00AM to 1:00PM. Social Services provides links and assist in applications for entitlement programs they may be eligible. The Township lending closet housed at the center enables residents to “check out” walkers, canes and other adaptive devices for short term lending. 

 

Our History

The Hanover Township Senior Center was dedicated on April 2, 2005. It is a visible symbol of the support that this community has for its elders. A Senior Tax Referendum, "Support Our Seniors," was passed in November 2002 thanks to our seniors whose dedication and hard work incited its passage. This Referendum allowed for the construction and maintenance of a new Senior Center.  Opperman Architects, Inc. and contractor, Lamp, Inc. worked along with our Supervisor, Clerk, Board of Trustees and staff to achieve a dream that benefits all adults, age 55 and over, who live in Hanover Township.

The Senior Services Department offers a wide variety of advantages to the seniors who live in our Township.  We offer transportation, recreational programs and trips, social services as well as many opportunities for volunteerism.
