LIVE OAK ADULT DAY SERVICES is a nonprofit, community-based agency which provides a specialized program of adult day care for frail elderly dependent adults who are residents of Santa Clara County. We have four locations in Cupertino, Gilroy, Los Gatos & Willow Glen.
Our dedicated staff is here to provide compassionate care. Our goal is long term support in keeping our clients independent and active. We accept adults that are unable to live independently, who need support in their daily activities, or those who would benefit from the social experience and stimulation of an adult day care program like ours. We offer emotional, functional, social/spiritual, physical and mental support.
Live Oak Adult Day Care offers caregivers support and relief so that the caregiver can go to work, finish errands and other daily tasks while knowing that their loved one is well tended in a caring environment. Taking short term breaks can relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in a caregiver's life. In addition, Live Oak Adult Day Care offers support groups, classes and other resources to help caregivers in their daily lives.
We ensure that our clients have an opportunity to enjoy a variety of stimulating activities such as:
- Adaptive physical exercise
- Music programs
- Arts & crafts projects
- Discussions on current events, and times of reminiscing
- Visits from many community volunteers of all ages.
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.
Our Live Oak Directors are certified in music therapy for people with dementia and have the tools to provide seniors with music therapy while they are in our care.

“…this program has been the best activity or way for my mother to spend her day. It’s provided stimulation that has resulted in her good health of mind.”
“Socializing keeps her more grounded in reality. Also, she seems to eat & drink at day care. At home she sometimes doesn’t remember. Day care helps her to have a routine that she looks forward to.”
“… caring for him is much easier because he is happier when he goes to Live Oak.”
"The day care has freed my husband (her son) from having to check on her throughout the day. He would often have to arrange his day to be home for lunch, etc. It frees me up during summer & school vacations to spend time with our daughters."
“The staff is wonderful. They are always caring and patient. The activities keep [my mother-in-law] busy during the day and give her something to look forward to.”
“The day care program has “given me a life – time to socialize & get work around house done.”
"Attending Live Oak helped my dad to enjoy the last few years of his life to the fullest extent possible. I owe Charlie and her amazing staff an eternity of thanks."
"I am so pleased with this program. It provided a lot of stimulation & socialization for my husband. Gratitude for all you do with such caring."
