Honor Roll

of Giving

At Oakwood Creative Care, we celebrate each moment life has to offer. A persons’ advancing age, or a diagnosis shouldn’t overshadow the right for every person to feel JOY! Our clubs are filled with laughter, singing, art, learning, friendships, and new experiences daily, while our family support programs offer hope through community, resources, education, and support.

Behind every smile, laugh, and moment of joy, are the people and acts of love that made it possible.

As a nonprofit organization who makes care affordable to ALL who need it, these moments would not be achievable without the support and generous donations from members of our community.
Our Honor Roll of Giving celebrates gifts of $1,000 or more. They wouldn’t be possible without you.

    Give the Gift of Joy

    Thank you Dignity Health for sponsoring 16 Dementia Hub Coffee Talk events over the next year to create an inclusive experience for families to receive support, education, and community building for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia related disorders and their care partners.
