Who We Serve

All too often, people with cognitive disabilities feel excluded from society and alienated by others. The message they receive is that they have nothing of value to contribute. They can feel that life is passing them by.

When people feel undervalued and disconnected, idleness and depression take over. They may sleep away the days and spend nights playing video games or watching television. They forget to take their medication, eat poorly and fail to exercise. This behavior often gets worse over time, a destructive pattern played out in the lives of many people who have subsequently come to live with us. For these individuals, LiveOak is a game-changer. It’s the difference between thriving and just surviving.
