The Open Circle
Gift of the Givers donates aid to The Open Circle in Maitland Western Cape.
The Open Circle, a group home/step down care facility catering specifically for adults with an intellectual disability who often display challenging behaviour. The Open Circle came about in 2008 when a group of concerned parents and care givers got together. They shared the desperate need for a residential care facility for their family members. Previously this group of people had been excluded from existing group homes, due to their difficulties.
The Open Circle has established as a pilot project group home in the grounds of Alexandra Hospital in Maitland, Cape Town. We initially catered for 10 residents but the numbers were increased to 20 in March 2015. There will be a maximum of 30 residents and two additional places for patients requiring temporary respite. The home was officially opened on 6 March 2015.
