To help older adults and caregivers live with as much dignity, independence and quality of life as possible, CICOA develops guidelines to address critical issues in daily living. They are available here on our webpage and disseminated to health care professionals, legislators, government officials, family members and other interested parties.
Public Transportation Guidelines
CICOA urges central Indiana citizens to advocate for a public transportation system that accommodates the needs of all citizens with emphasis on including the elderly and disabled.
Impaired Driving Guidelines
CICOA strongly encourages family, caregivers and/or friends take the first step by initiating a conversation with the individual concerning their driving abilities.
Medication Management Guidelines
Medication management is a daily activity for many individuals. Although medication effects include many positive health-related benefits, medication use is not risk free.
Long-Term Care Guidelines
Long-term care is so much more than just getting care in a nursing home. It may be provided at home, in the community, in assisted living facilities or nursing homes and includes activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, toileting, eating, preparing meals, or housekeeping.
CICOA promotes the creation of “aging-in-place” communities that include housing options that offer the opportunity for seniors and people of any age with a disability to maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life.
