Get to Know Adam
August 13, 2020

Adam is quite popular with the members at Oakwood, and he’s made several friends during his time working at “the club”!

Around here, Adam isn’t hard to find. You’ll spot him in several videos on YouTube, teaching how to paint or giving advice to caregivers of those with dementia or other age-related challenges. When he’s not busy working with members in the club, he’s often teaching a variety of customized subjects in virtual one-on-one sessions online!

We're a nonprofit organization based in Mesa, Arizona with three senior day club locations (and a fourth on the way) which serve older adults with Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's, and various other physical or cognitive challenges. Life does not end with a diagnosis. Our members continue to learn new skills, enjoy new discoveries, make friends, laugh, and live a joy-filled life. Our team of dementia experts lead support groups, events, classes, and private sessions with caregivers and families, guiding them on the best methods to care for their loved ones while also caring for themselves.
