ABOUT CIRCLESOF CARING
Since 2001, Circles of Caring Adult Day Services
has been a treasured resource, providing services to individuals and families living on the Palouse. The skilled services provided by the highly qualified professionals working for our program make it possible for many vulnerable adults and frail elders to remain in more affordable and emotionally-supportive care of their families. Our program also makes it possible for family caregivers to remain in the workforce, knowing that their loved ones are secure during the workday.
Adult Day Services participants come from all walks of life. For many years these individuals have served the Palouse region as teachers, musicians, lawyers, physicians, janitors, scientists, homemakers, business owners, veterans, plumbers, and police officers -- to name a few. Thanks to their dedication and willingness to give their best to the community, the Palouse region is a vibrant, life-giving, and wholesome place to live and work. These individuals now deserve our help, and this program.
