The Full Life Learning Center
The Full Life Learning Center is:
a gathering space for our extended ‘ohana
a place of learning, decision making and skills building
a jumping off point for day trips and rich new experiences in our communities
Located in Mango Court in Kealakekua, the Learning Center is a daytime program where social skills, recreational pursuits, and independent living skills are encouraged, developed and shared.
Like Full Life’s in-home and community-based services, the Learning Center’s programs are individualized, and activities are designed to to meet each client’s personal needs and goals.
But the Learning Center is also a social space, with participants who reflect various levels of intellectual, social and physical abilities. Individually and as a group, they’re given the environment, opportunity, care and encouragement to learn and thrive.
At the Learning Center, our clients’ social skills are continually encouraged and increased through positive interactions with staff, peers and the larger community.
Community outings include diverse and enriching activities like whale watching, parks, beaches, cultural events, fairs and swimming at the public pool.
Clients are always encouraged to explore their individual interests and abilities, and learn how to best access available community events and services.
The Learning Center staff truly love their work and genuinely respect and value each person’s unique perspective, abilities and objectives.
Medicaid calls the services that The Learning Center provides Adult Day Health and Full Life provides Adult Day Health levels 1 and 2.
The Learning Center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and is free to individuals who qualify. Participants can attend one to five days a week and Full Life provides transportation to and from the Learning Center for individuals who attend full days.
