Mission Statement

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for adults who are physically and/or cognitively challenged by providing compassionate day services. We are a non-profit organization located in Ankeny, Iowa. We are dedicated to helping adults of all ages maintain their level of independence, remain in their own homes and be active members of their communities.

Description

New Horizons Adult Day Center opened in January 2000 to address the needs of weary caregivers and persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological conditions. We first operated one day per week at Ankeny First United Methodist Church and then relocated to the Neveln Community Resource Center in 2004.

Our Day break Center provides health care monitoring, supervision, therapeutic recreation, and social services five days a week to adults who have cognitive and or physical challenges related to traumatic brain injury, stroke and other neurological conditions or progressive diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease.

Paul’s Place is open five days a week from 10-3 to serve young adults ages 18-65 who are living with problems related to brain injury due to trauma, neurological diseases, health problems that spread to the brain or stroke. Paul’s Place, named in memory of Paul Elwell, offers mental stimulation, socialization, retraining of independent living skills, and fellowship with others that understand the frustrations of living with a brain injury.
