Adult Day Care For
Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a life-altering event. Depending on the severity of the injury, the patient can go from being completely independent to needing constant supervision and care.
If you have a loved one with a traumatic brain injury who lives in your home, you may need some additional help to meet his or her specific care needs. That’s why Independent Adult Day Centers was founded.
We offer a variety of services to assist adults over the age of 18 who suffer from life-altering diseases or health issues, such as a traumatic brain injury, to continue living at home. We offer Adult Day Services at three convenient Indianapolis area locations, as well as Attendant Care, Home Health Care and Health Care Coordination.

The Benefits of Partnering with IADC
Many Central Indiana families choose to partner with Independent Adult Day Centers because their loved ones with a significant head injury can still have a sense of independence and community around them, while also receiving the proper care during the day. Caregivers often turn to IADC for additional support during the day while they are at work or running other errands.
Our Centers have full-time LPNs, RN’s, CNAs, and HHAs on staff daily who can care for your loved one’s specific needs. With a 6:1 Guest-to-employee ratio, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing your family member or friend is receiving the individualized attention he or she needs.
Some of the benefits of partnering with IADC for Adult Day Services for your loved one with a traumatic brain injury include:
Some adult day centers provide activities for their Guests but do not have medical staff. IADC is different because our staff includes LPNs and RNs on-site to assist our patients with their medical needs. We monitor vital signs, assist with chronic disease management and administer medications and treatments and perform skilled nursing care including wound care, ostomy care, and feeding tubes. Along with overall health monitoring, our staff engages with your loved one to ensure she or he is comfortable, happy, and not overstimulated by the environment.
At Independent Adult Day Centers, your loved one will be treated to exceptional food. We serve breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack to our Guests. All of the food is approved by a registered dietitian and is made from scratch daily by a professional chef. We can accommodate a variety of special diets including food allergies, diabetic and heart-healthy, pureed, mechanical soft, and more.
Independent Adult Day Centers can also pick up Guests each morning from their homes and drop them back off in the evening.
Activities and Socialization
Recovering from a traumatic brain injury can involve a lot of time spent in isolation at home. Independent Adult Day Centers can provide the socialization and engagement that Guests need. We have several comfortable couches in our beautiful and expansive Centers for our Guests to relax and recharge. We also have various activities that Guests can take part in, including arts and crafts, baking, games, and a weekly community outing. Activities change frequently and more are added as needed.
Talk to IADC About In-Home Services too
In addition to our adult day services in our Centers, IADC offers in-home services including Attendant Care, Health Care Coordination, and Home Health Care services that can benefit those with traumatic brain injuries.
Our Home Health Care services include skilled nursing care such as medication administration, blood draws, tube feeding, oxygen management, catheter care, and wound care; as well as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.
Our Attendant Care services can assist with Activities of Daily Living such as bathing and grooming. They also can help with light housekeeping; shopping and errands; and companionship.
Our Health Care Coordination team can help with medication management, schedule and provide transportation to and from doctor’s appointments and accompany our Guests to their appointments in order to advocate for our Guests and relay health information back to families and other members of the Guest’s care team to ensure that orders and follow-up care is executed properly.
