Alzheimer’s & Dementia Services of Northern Indiana, a division of REAL Services, provides support, education, and information to persons with Alzheimer’s or related dementia, their caregivers, and families throughout eleven counties in northern Indiana. Milton Adult Day Services provides a structured setting for adults who need support services during the day.
REAL Services began providing services for older adults 50 years ago when we developed the 1st nutrition site in the county. This program served as a model for nutrition assistance used across the country. Since then, based on needs of the community, additional programs have been developed, like Transportation, Meals on Wheels and 38 Senior Nutrition Sites.
It is a great privilege to be a part of an organization that works to support independence at all
levels. Our dedicated volunteers, forward-thinking leaders and knowledgeable, caring staff
work hard every day to provide a host of services that help people live better lives. It’s our goal
to help more older adults receive the care and support they deserve.
