Hope and Healing Through Connection

DHH is a dynamic non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life through the provision of non-medical support for those affected by or caring for an individual with a life-threatening illness, as well as bereavement support.

What is The Oasis Program?

What is The Oasis Program?

The Oasis Program provides a safe environment for social interaction and activities that illness can often restrict. Offered every Thursday at DHH 10 am – 2 pm with lunch provided.

Imagine a place that you can visit each week, removed from your routine, and take refuge from the world...

Just as the programs name suggests, Oasis is a place to relax and be refreshed, with a companiable lunch included.  All activities are individualized to the interests of the participants, and can include: massage therapy; reiki, yoga; journalling; speakers, and painting.

 How can You be involved?

Becoming involved with Oasis is as simple as calling to arrange an assessment by one of our professional staff. As with all programs, Oasis is free of charge and open to anyone with a life-threatening illness who is mobile, cognitive and responsible for his or her own personal care needs and medication.

The house is walker and wheelchair friendly and should transportation be needed to the program, volunteer drivers can be arranged.

Time: Thursday, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Registration required: Yes
