In Recognition of Colleen Hudgen

Colleen Hudgen joined LlVE OAK ADULT DAY SERVICES as the Executive Director in May 2000. Colleen managed four specialized adult day care centers that provide stimulating adult-oriented recreation and socialization on behalf of frail, at-risk seniors. As a community leader, Colleen was also very involved as an advocate for seniors. She also spoke at many community forums on emerging issues facing seniors and their family caregivers. In fact, Colleen was a sought after speaker and guest at public/private venues to share her wealth of knowledge on senior issues. Colleen utilized her love of speaking engagements and social media to get the word out to the community about services provided and informing those in need that “Live Oak is here to help you care for a loved one”.

In 2007, Colleen was featured on Channel 7/ABC PROFILES IN EXCELLENCE as a “social prophet” and outstanding professional in Silicon Valley because of her passion for service. The television show was aired locally and on their national affiliate channels.

In 2009, 2012 & 2013 Colleen was selected as the Chair of the Santa Clara County Senior Commission, appointed by the Board of Supervisors, to advise them on emerging issues facing seniors. Colleen had been a member of the Commission since 2005. Colleen was also active in The Santa Clara County Senior Round Table, Silicon Valley Council of Non-Profits, Cupertino Rotary, and the Ethnic Roundtable of Silicon Valley.

Commemorating her retirement and in celebration of her service to the community, Colleen was awarded Certificates of Commendation from the Honorable Sam Liccardo, Mayor of the City of San Jose and the Honorable Mike Wasserman, Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. The Live Oak Board and staff held a garden party at the Willow Glen site, dedicating the lovely Zen Garden in her honor.

El Camino Hospital and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation have come together to create Meet & Move a “walk and talk” program designed specifically for those caring for a friend or loved one in the Peninsula/South Bay of the SF Bay Area and Santa Cruz.

Meet and Move was formed in order to help you take better care of yourself, so that you can better care for those you are supporting. The idea is to give you an opportunity to enjoy a little downtime, improve your fitness level, and create opportunities to connect with others who understand your situation. Through weekly walks, a monthly speaker series and events, you are among other caregivers who understand what you are going through.
