NEW ALBANY, IN — Peggy’s Place, an Adult Life Center program to open in New Albany, Indiana on April 1, is hosting an open house on March 30 from 4pm to 6pm. Peggy’s Place, an Adult Life Center program open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 5pm, is for seniors or those with disabilities who need a place to spend the day while their caregivers work. Named after a beloved caregiver, Peggy’s Place exists to enrich your loved one’s life and support dedicated caregivers. Daily group and individual activities are designed to engage each person, stimulate the senses, promote brain ability — and to make every day something to look forward to.

The open house, which will also serve as the official ribbon cutting for the business, will take place at Peggy’s Place at 1730 Audubon Drive, Suite 100 in New Albany. The open house will offer snacks and beverages along with the opportunity to experience the activities and care Peggy’s Place will offer its participants.

Attendees can also apply to be a Peggy’s Place participant, as the life center is now accepting applications.

At Peggy’s Place, professional nursing medical staff will provide hands-on medical care and administer treatments or medications to participants. They’ll perform skilled assessments, monitor chronic diseases and conditions, and even provide care management where applicable. Daily group and individual activities will be available at the center such as exercise, pet therapy, intergenerational therapy, music/art therapy, gardening, book club, community outings and more. In addition to serving breakfast, a hot lunch and nutritious snacks, Peggy’s Place will provide assistance arranging transportation to and from the center.

Peggy’s Place is named after Peggy Phelps, the mother of Ginger Jones, Co-founder of Diversified Nurse Consultants and Peggy’s Place. Peggy spent many years caring for her younger sister Joyce, who was born with cerebral palsy. Then she served as her parents’ caregiver after her mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
