We currently have six elder-care facilities in Dover. The McConnell Community Center offers senior programs in fitness, adult learning, and senior events and gatherings. The center is for adults 50+ years of age who want to get out and enjoy the company of others their own age. We have an array of activities from exercise programs, including yoga daily games, mystery luncheons, special events, trips, entertainment, and there is always a pot of coffee brewing. Stop in and have a cup of coffee with your friends or if you are new to the center, come in and introduce yourself and our friendly staff will show you around. Monthly Socials are a great way to get together, find out what’s going on in the center, provide entertainment or informative speakers and enjoy some snacks with your fellow members. Recurring weekly and monthly activities include: Silver Strummers Ukulele Group, Craft Group, Mystery Luncheons, Senior Book Club, Computer Lab, and a Visiting Nurse. The Dover Community Senior Center has a wonderful opportunity for members to use the fitness area of Dover Recreation, Monday through Friday from 8am – 12noon for a $5 yearly surcharge as part of their Senior Center membership. The fitness area includes a Cybex circuit room, cardio and free weight rooms, and a warm up cool down area with mats, exercise balls, and flex bands. Dover includes and encourages senior participation in a myriad of committees, boards, and commissions; supporting a broad range of municipal activities and voluntary programs, as an integral part of city government. All new construction of multi-family and commercial buildings are ADA compliant.
