You are welcome to drop by during business hours to see the program but please make an appointment with the Program Director ahead of time to go over enrollment documents.
Upon enrollment (or during free visit days), you must schedule your time with Live Oak, since we order meals and schedule staff ahead of time and we want to be sure we can accommodate everyone. Attendance can not be by a drop-in basis.
Our meals are catered and adhere to the nutritional guidelines established by our CA State nutrition program which monitors our program. The meals are low sodium. If there are other restrictions, this can be discussed with the site program director.
We cannot accept clients who are incontinent. Our experienced staff provides assistance in the bathroom, we cannot lift individuals so your loved one needs to be able to stand and pivot with minimal assistance.
Live Oak does not have their own van or provide private transportation. Many of our participants are brought to and from Live Oak by one of several independent paratransit or elder transport services. Staff can provide resources if needed.
Absolutely. About a third of our participants are high-functioning individuals who can carry on conversations, play games and produce creative arts and crafts projects.

Many of our activities, such as art, chair exercises, live music, and word games, appeal to people with a wide range of cognitive skills.
