The Perfect Place For Healthy Aging
Having access to reliable and convenient senior care solutions is pertinent in fostering a higher quality of life for adults living with challenges such as Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Our hope is to continue bridging the gaps that would otherwise make it difficult for seniors and their families to engage in moments of joy and find hope in light of their diagnosis.
One year ago, Oakwood Creative Care was approached by The Perfect Place, a non-profit adult day services center in Sun Lakes, to join us in our vision of bridging the gaps through reigniting light, hope, and purpose for seniors within their community.
Senior Care Services For The Sun Lakes Community
Wayne expressed to Oakwood Creative Care’s President and CEO, Sherri Friend, that he and his wife had moved to Sun Lakes because it was a retirement community, expecting to have access to everything they needed to retire well. However, throughout his care partner journey, Wayne found the need for a solution that would bring vital senior services to the Sun Lakes area.

Sun Lakes resident and caregiver, Wayne Mangold, would drive nearly 400 miles per week to Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa so his wife could receive the services she needed.
Creative Engagement Partners
Among these community leaders was the Executive Director of The Perfect Place, who recognized the value of collaboration and approached Oakwood’s CEO, Sherri, about combining efforts in order to enhance the services being offered through The Perfect Place.
Oakwood Creative Care Presents: The Perfect Place
Throughout this journey, we’ve learned that an official partnership between our two organizations would elevate the potential for more revolutionary programs —providing the stability needed to optimize solutions much closer to home for local residents.
Oakwood Creative Care and The Perfect Place look forward to sharing our familiar yet unique creative-based paradigm of thinking to the Sun Lakes community come January of 2022. This partnership will secure access to holistic engagement opportunities centered around treating the mind, body, and spirit of each member without having to venture too far away from home. Together, we will continue to help the Sun Lakes community discover the difference a day can make.
