Donate to Oakwood Creative Care Jail n Bail Event
It’s time for a jailbreak! Arizona’s most notorious nonprofit mobsters have been rounded up, thrown in the slammer, and locked away… for good! Their crimes? Spreading too much joy in their work as Oakwood Creative Care’s Board of Directors! Now, it’s up to YOU to help them raise bail so they can run free and get back to work serving those in need! So today, donate to their bail funds, become a part of the Oakwood Mafia Family, and create hope for Arizona’s seniors living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other age-related challenges!

Your Donation Matters

Each of Oakwood’s Board Members has put in years of dedication to supporting seniors living with cognitive and physical challenges, as well as their families and caregivers – but their work isn’t over yet!
A silver tsunami is quickly approaching, and Arizona is poised to have the fastest growth rate of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias in the country by 2025. Yet, with only 2% of philanthropic dollars directed to elderly care, families and caregivers are often left to fill in the gaps of a desperately underfunded healthcare system. 

Additionally, Senior Living reports the average out-of-pocket cost of a private nursing home in the state of Arizona is approximately $8,213 a month. That means families and caregivers are expected to pay an average of $98,556 a year for housing and nursing care on top of the added costs of medications, deductibles, medical equipment, personal care products, and so much more.

As a nonprofit organization, our Day Clubs remain open with the generous support of our community. Donations made to Oakwood Creative Care help us provide innovative, creative, and affordable solutions to families seeking exceptional care for their loved ones — without having to move them out of the family home. 

With your donation, Oakwood Creative Care can continue to provide light, hope, and dignity beyond a diagnosis by expanding resources and support options available through our creative, wellness, and engagement programs. And more importantly, every $100 raised in bail funds will go directly towards covering a full day at one of Oakwood’s Day Clubs, where members find new friends, interests, talents, a safe and comfortable environment, and most importantly…JOY!
