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 glimmer of light – like finally being in a place of comfort and understanding, where each day offers families the promise of finding 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. (PLUS, you could possibly earn yourself a donation credit on your next tax return!)

Your Charitable Donation Helps Adults Find Joy Beyond A Diagnosis

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.

Know Exactly Where Your Dollars Go When You Donate To OCC

Every day at the club presents a new opportunity for Oakwood members and families to discover meaning, purpose, and, most of all…JOY! When you donate to Oakwood Creative Care, your kindness and generosity can provide seniors and their care partners with the following invaluable resources:
