This gala could not have been possible without the charitable support of the below companies who have sponsored or donated to the event. Thank you for joining us in creating a better life for older adults in need.

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. A turningpoint on an otherwise discouraging road…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.

In a state where nearly 20% of the population are 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 a care partner, 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.

Every day presents a new opportunity for Oakwood members and families, to discover meaning, purpose,…and most of all…JOY!
