PROVIDING SPECIALIZED AND COMPASSIONATE MEMORY CARE

We understand the worry, stress, and anxiety that comes with taking care of a family member with disabilities or memory impairments. We also know the significant investment of time that is required. That’s where KANDU comes in. We help alleviate those stresses with an activities-oriented adult day and memory care program that allows your loved one to improve their physical, mental and social wellbeing and give you peace of mind that they are in good hands.

IMPROVING SOCIAL WELLBEING

“The KANDU day service program is a vital program for the community, caregivers and the person affected by memory loss. The trained staff provide scheduled cognitive and physical activities that enhance quality of life in a safe and relaxed environment.”

— Tammy Pence, Alzheimer’s Support Center

AND THERE’S MORE…

Clients can spend the day with a group of peers in a comfortable home-like setting where they build independence and self-esteem in a nurturing and secure environment while providing their caregivers with the important respite they need. Family members have their minds put at ease knowing our experienced staff is focused solely on the needs of their loved ones. Programming is tailored to each participant’s individual abilities and the KANDU staff — which includes a nurse and team of certified nursing assistants — fosters a community that feels more like a family than a facility.

Not only does KANDU staff assist with all day-to-day needs, including meal preparation, toileting, medication administration, and mobility, they strive to create a family-like atmosphere that is fun and engaging.

Your loved one will revel in many of our engaging activites, such as:

  • Arts and crafts
  • Community outings and day trips
  • Cooking and meal preparation
  • Games
  • Holiday parties and themed celebrations
  • Movies and reading time
  • Music
  • Shopping
  • Socialization and friendship building

KANDU’s Adult Day and Memory Care Program is available Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., except on major holidays.

Clients played a hand-made game where they had to manage their money. One client had to spend $50 to take his dog to the vet while others had to pay student loans, put gas in their cars, buy groceries, and purchase new tires for their cars. Some clients were lucky and received holiday and birthday ...money and a $300 bonus for coming to work on time for three months in a row. Life sure can get expensive!

Talk about the end of an era – it's our last day at Adel Street! Come Monday, we will all be under one roof at our new facility in Milton! But today, we are taking a moment to celebrate. We had a special lunch, played bingo (with LOTS of prizes), and finished the day with some games ...including an especially fun game of kickball on the empty production floor.

July is Disability Pride Month and this is the Disability Pride flag. Ann Magill, a writer with Cerebral Palsy, designed the first disability pride flag in 2019. Each color on the flag represents a different category of disabilities. Red = physical, Gold = neurodiversity, White = invisible ...disabilities and those not yet diagnosed, Blue = emotional and psychiatric disabilities, Green = sensory disabilities. The faded black background represents mourning and rage for victims of ableism. Together, these colorful bands represent a light that cuts through the darkness. Ann Magill did not seek copyright of this flag design since so many people offered suggestions, she felt it represented the whole community.

Clients in KANDU's ISP program had a bunch of fun together playing with the parachute! Activities like this game allow clients to practice and build physical, social, and cognitive skills to enhance overall well-being.

Jon Cruzan and a group of Milton community members came through for a tour of KANDU's new facility on Plumb St. last week. The group got to see the production projects we're working on and chat with clients on their lunch break. Thanks for visiting!
