To help combat social isolation, San Diego Oasis offers various classes throughout the year to keep older adults vibrant, healthy and independent. The nonprofit has seen its members blossom after they enroll and begin attending their classes where they meet other older adults and become more active and productive.
San Diego Oasis works to foster a positive environment for older adults to thrive by promoting successful aging through lifelong learning programs and focusing on the importance of an active lifestyle and community involvement.
