For families embarking on an uncharted path with a loved one’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or stroke, discovering Oakwood Creative Care can feel like a wish come true – like stumbling upon a garden of hope where every person adds their unique colors to a mosaic filled with promise, comfort, and the joy they once feared was in the past. However, Oakwood’s work wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for you.
As a nonprofit organization, Oakwood relies on the generous support of our community to continue providing and expanding care solutions for our elderly members in need and their families. When you donate to Oakwood, you are taking an active role in support of our mission to improve quality of life by sparking magical moments for seniors in your community.
Donate Today & Help OCC Create A Life Of Enchantment For Seniors & Families In Need
In a state where nearly 20% of the population is aged 65+ and the rates of dementia are growing exponentially, Oakwood’s services are needed now more than ever. We provide a welcoming community to family members as they transition into their new role as care partners, with memory cafés, support groups, educational presentations, care partner training programs, and opportunities to connect with others who share a similar journey.
At Oakwood, you’ll find a vibrant place where a person’s physical or cognitive challenges don’t impede them from living each of life’s moments to the fullest. You’ll find members who are picking up a paintbrush for the first time or reconnecting with the joy the piano once sparked in their younger years. Some may choose to join a woodworking class, while others dive deeper into a discussion on world history, plant flowers in the fresh air, or sing in the choir.
