About Us

Absolute Care was founded in 1999 by Mark King. Mark received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from The Ohio State University and began assisting individuals with disabilities through a large supported living agency in Franklin County. This opportunity provided him with many diverse experiences and an understanding of the career path he wanted to pursue.

In June 1997 Mark was approved for Independent Providership and in September 1999 Absolute Care was officially registered to provide home and community based Waiver services.  Since Absolute Care’s inception in 1999 Mark has stood firmly by it’s mission and today he has the support of the entire Absolute Care team who stands behind this mission as well.  We are committed to providing quality care to each of our clients by working together within our agency and with each client’s network of support.  Our dedicated team includes:
