For many adults with cognitive disabilities, living in the community can result in isolation, loneliness and depression as they attempt to navigate an often complex society.
LiveOak is designed to provide a living community where people are socially engaged while having support in pursuing their goals and creating a life that is fulfilling and meaningful.
LiveOak was intentionally built in San Marcos due to its small-town atmosphere, accessibility, and seemingly limitless activities. The residents at LiveOak are able to be a part of the community that surrounds them, instead of staying on the periphery and peering in.
LiveOak residents vote, work, volunteer, attend public events and actively participate in community events.
LiveOak's model for community involvement can be visualized like the hub and spokes of a wagon wheel. Each location serves as a hub for residents. It's home. The wheel represents San Marcos and the community at large. Each spoke represents activities available for community involvement. Residents can move in and out of community care to the extent that they wish and are able.
LiveOak has three locations: the LiveOak Ranch, the LiveOak Apartments and SmithHouse. Each location offers various levels of care and support.
At LiveOak, inclusion is not a program, it’s a mindset.SCHEDULE A VISIT
