Located at 1615 E. Castle Ave. and adjacent to the University of Indianapolis’ Health Pavilion, the center provides services for the elderly, the disabled and their families and caregivers. Its mission is to help families to stay together for as long as possible in their own homes, despite aging issues and life-altering diagnoses.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to expand our services and grow our partnership with UIndy at this newly renovated location,” Joy’s House founder and President Tina McIntosh said. “The proximity gives our guests easy access to health and wellness services and creates robust volunteer and internship opportunities for UIndy students.”
UIndy President Robert Manuel said the arrival of Joy’s House advances the university’s strategic plan to attract new services and amenities to the surrounding neighborhood, elevating quality of life for Southside residents as well as UIndy students and employees.
The first Joy’s House opened in 2000 in Broad Ripple and in 2009 completed a 12,000-square-foot expansion. In July 2014, Joy’s House assumed operations of Southport Adult Day Center and has consolidated its Southside operations at the Castle Avenue site.
