Milestones
Adult Day Health Center

WHAT IS MILESTONES?
Milestones is an innovative adult day health center designed to prevent premature or unnecessary institutionalization of adults with physical and/or psychological challenges. We are committed to assisting participants experiencing strokes, arthritis, Alzheimer's and related dementia's, hearing and vision loss, depression and other conditions to achieve maximum levels of independence, which also meets the needs of caregivers.

PROFESSIONAL STAFF:
    Milestones uses a multidisciplinary team concept which allows us to best serve the various needs of participants. The staff consists of a Director, social worker, a registered nurse, certified nursing assistants, visual artist, music therapist, registered dietitian, and a consulting psychiatrist.
Together they provide the only adult day health center of its kind in Linn County.
