Horizon Adult Health provides much-needed quality health services to aging Kentuckians

More than 700,000 Kentuckians face the daily stress of serving as caregivers for family members. Too often, they’ve had the limited choices of either placing that loved one in a nursing home — which is costly and often against the wishes of the patient — or trying to handle the needs of an elderly parent while maintaining a full-time job and raising a family.

That’s why Horizon Adult Health provides a range of care for aging Kentuckians and support for their families.

It all began more than 20 years ago with adult day-care facilities. Horizon has now worked with more than 3,000 families — whether it’s providing care for senior loved ones at its adult day centers or in-home care throughout the state.

Adult day care

Horizon Adult Health operates the largest adult day health-care company headquartered in Kentucky.

It provides adult day health-care services to the frail and elderly, including door-to-door transportation, skilled nursing services, nutritious meals and recreation opportunities. These services provide respite for family caregivers, allowing them to continue working while they care for loved ones, and help aging adults stay in their home longer. Horizon’s newest facility recently opened in Lexington at 2433 Regency Road. This modern facility provides security, privacy, and comfort for aging loved ones.

“Your loved one will be secure, healthy, and connected to the community, which is important for mental well-being,” President and CEO Kelly Upchurch said. “And it will bring peace of mind and relief to family caregivers. Our goal is to help ensure your loved one can stay safely at home as long as possible. These families aren’t a number. They’re our neighbors. We can help you achieve your loved one’s goal of staying out of the nursing home and being independent for as long as possible.”
