To be the premier provider of adult day health care services, including nutrition and exercise programs, social stimulation and recreational activities which encourage independence and autonomy for aging and disabled members of our communities. Providing these services also insures respite to their caregivers allowing them to remain in the workforce or rest from the challenges of caregiving.
In 1994, the Cleveland County Council on Aging, located in Norman, Oklahoma, formed a task force to study the need for adult day services in the community. In response to the study, the task force determined that there was an urgent gap in this type of service. A board of directors was formed in February 1995 and Full Circle Adult Day Center opened its doors in February 1996. Full Circle is a non-profit organization of caring, professional staff members ready to respond to families in need, support caregivers with expertise and workable solutions, and provide a non-residential place where aging and disabled adults can participate in life-enriching programs and activities that help them improve and maintain their independence. More than just respite care for caregivers, Full Circle is a high quality, holistic solution for the whole family. With its non-profit perspective on providing help to those in need, Full Circle is affordable for families. There are 25 adult day service centers in Oklahoma. Full Circle serves the following counties and more: Cleveland, Pottawatomi, McClain, Grady and Oklahoma. Full Circle’s community-based, long-term care services are cost-effective and allow aging and disabled adults to remain in their own homes while giving them the opportunity to stay well connected to all that is familiar…friends, family, and community.
From the President of the Board: I volunteer my time and energy in honor of my parents who were good, hardworking people. They raised 6 children, gave to their community, volunteered at school activities and other events. They were busy, self-reliant, active and giving people.
I see my parents in the participants at Full Circle (FC). I see older adults who were once connected to the community, but now because of age or illness, they are disconnected. FC gives these older citizens a place to gather, to participate, to be active, and to belong in a smaller version of our community. FC is a community of participants, caregivers, volunteers, and family. A community of people doing the best they can to make our lives better.
But like all non-profits in OK today we need better funding sources. Our older citizens need and deserve quality care. Our participants have given much to our community and now due to age or illness they need our help.
Sometimes it is easier to find donors for children's organizations than it is for older adults. We are asking you to remember that our participants are just like your parents or grandparents. We need to take care of our seniors who just want what we all want, and that is to be independent as long as possible.
Paula Roberts, Chairman of the Board for Full Circle Adult Day Center
