Active Day, Inc., the largest network of adult day health services in the country, recently made moves to expand across Indiana. The company currently operates centers in Munster, Lafayette, Yorktown and three locations in Indianapolis, with Merrillville scheduled to open in the next few months. Active Day provides nursing care and health services, meals, transportation and therapeutic activities for the elderly and disabled adults. The centers offer comprehensive medical supervision and social programs, as well as physical, occupational and speech therapies for clients. The service is often viewed as an alternative to full-time nursing care.
“Our services allow our clients to maintain maximum independence by supplementing the assistance they receive from their primary caregivers,” said Kris Baldock, CEO of Active Day. “Not only that, but the costs for Active Day programs are less than assisted living and roughly half of those for nursing home care.”
Active Day Inc. was founded in 1995 with the goal of creating a nationwide network of community-based health care services to meet the needs of the frail elderly, disabled adults and their caregivers. Since then, Active Day Inc. has created the largest network of adult day health services centers, in-home personal care companies and outpatient rehabilitation facilities in the country. This network provides adult day health services to more than 2,800 clients per day.
