Be The Difference For Seniors In Need
There is a major deficit in funding for our senior community, but there is still time for YOU to help make an impact before the end of tax season!
An alarming 2% of philanthropic dollars are being directed to elderly care, leaving a massive financial gap and strenuous emotional toll to be filled by families and unpaid care partners. Alzheimer’s disease stands to be one of the costliest of chronic conditions to provide care for, a lifetime cost estimated at over $373,000 – 70% of which is funded by unpaid caregiving and out-of-pocket expenses, ranging from food to medications to everything else in between (Alzheimer’s Association, 2021).
Oakwood Creative Care’s mission to enhance the quality of life and spark joy for adults with age-related cognitive and physical challenges focuses on the deeply rooted need for offering a creative and engaging environment meant to match the strengths and interests of its Members, as well as reduce anxiety, depression, and burnout for families and care partners. The financial toll and emotional stress that comes with providing care for seniors in need is heavy, but it does not have to be carried alone.
