Our goal is to see beyond a persons diagnosis and provide programs to assist in increasing or maintain cognitive, social, and/or physical abilities through focusing on the three pillars of our mission utilizing programs focused on the mind, body, and spirit:
Music, Art, Horticultural, Pet Therapy: Therapists provide daily group and individual sessions. These classes are provided through two full time therapists, volunteers, and one paid consultant.
Cognitive Education for Advanced Brain Health: an innovative history-oriented weekly class aims to expand conversations and critical thinking. This class is performed by a paid consultant with the goal to expand the number of sessions utilizing an Oakwood staff member.
