There are many wonderful things about living in Sheridan, one being that we have numerous resources that improve our quality of life — beautiful parks, art exhibits, world class musical talent and much more.

The Hub on Smith Support Center was created to be a resource to improve the quality of life of older adults and community members that are looking for assistance in navigating resources for themselves or a loved one. The team at The Hub on Smith is excited to expand services offered to meet the growing demand for older adult support in our community, and the number of community members that we serve.

The Hub Support Center has been designed to create a comprehensive one-point access within The Hub that creates a client-oriented experience that is streamlined, efficient and creates the highest level of service delivery. The goal is to educate and connect individuals to services offered at The Hub which include in-home care, family care giver support, transportation, access to meals, day programs and activities and referrals to community resources while providing care coordination and care planning.

Clients of the Support Center have expressed that it has given them hope to have this resource to help them by providing supportive resources. A Support Center client wrote, “Thanks so much for helping out with my father-in-law; he is doing really well and it was a great appointment for everyone. Thanks for all you and The Hub do for our community.”

Recently, the Hub Support Center provided services to an individual who was a beloved member of The Hub family and the community. His care coordinator was able to coordinate services to help him with his mobility, medical coordination, self-care and financial assistance. She coordinated resources within The Hub and community while advocating to ensure that his needs were met and that his rights and wishes were valued.

The Support Center collaborates with numerous community organizations to provide comprehensive caring support to older adults and their families so they can live as independently as possible while their rights and choices are valued. It offers assistance to anyone who is caring for someone 60 or older or has a disability.

The Support Center is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment. For more information, contact Jamie Hoeft at 307-461-7134 or jhoeft@thehubsheridan.org.
