Adult Day Services For
For the one million people living with Parkinson’s disease in the United States, performing daily tasks can be challenging. As symptoms progress, living alone may no longer be possible. Caregivers of Parkinson’s patients provide incredible comfort and support for loved ones and family members but can struggle to do so alone. Independent Adult Day Centers was founded to assist people with life-altering diseases and health issues, including Parkinson’s disease, with supplemental care in and out of the home.
Through our Adult Day Services program, your loved one or family member can remain at home and still receive the care they need during weekday hours at one of our three Indianapolis area Centers. This gives you, the caregiver, the ability to meet the other needs in your life including work, chores around the house, and even a respite to rest and recharge. We also offer at-home services including Attendant Care, Home Health Care, and Healthcare Coordination.
Why Choose IADC for Your Loved One With Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s patients are keenly aware of the burden that is placed on family members and caregivers. The ability to get out of the house and interact with other people to have a sense of independence is important to them. IADC provides a space to engage with a friendly and loving community while receiving medical care/oversight. Some of the reasons to consider joining the IADC family include:
Many people living with Parkinson’s disease need full-time care and support. At IADC, our team of highly trained medical staff will develop an individualized medical treatment plan for your loved one. Should your loved one need medication to help with their motor skills, our team can provide medication management, including reminders and administration. Our skilled nursing team is committed to caring and will conduct ongoing health assessments to meet each individual’s needs.
Although there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, studies have found that medication and physical, occupational, and speech therapy can help slow the progression. We offer these therapy services through Independent Home Health Care.
Getting out of the house and engaging with others is crucial for those with Parkinson’s, as this disease can lead to loneliness and a higher risk of isolation. We assess every Guest that joins our Centers to learn what they like to do and to learn their physical abilities. Through our assessment process, we ensure every Guest is personally accommodated so they will enjoy their time at the Center.
To promote quality of life, social and leisure activities are paramount for our Guests. We offer many activities at our Centers to encourage social engagement including painting, baking, sewing, and arts. Through a simple game of pool or doing a puzzle, many of our Guests have developed life-long friendships at our Centers. With so many activity options available, Guests can participate with a group or work at one of our self-initiated stations with no-fail concepts.
Our weekly community outings to restaurants, shows, or parks give your loved one the opportunity to be an active member of the community. We offer daily fitness classes at our Centers that are fun, inviting, and designed for all abilities. Research has shown that exercise can improve motor coordination, grip strength, and balance, and reduce tremors in those who suffer from Parkinson’s disease.
