In honor of Jolyn’s father, Joe Burrucker, they have decided to include San Diego Oasis in their estate plan.

Based on the Five Pillars of Courageous Living and the Courageous Aging book, this class will afford students an opportunity to free themselves of self-limiting myths, biases, judgments, misconceptions and fears, grieve the loss of their younger selves and embrace the older version of themselves with compassion, patience, affection, encouragement, humility, love and understanding.
"With a growing population of older adults here in San Diego, we have unlimited potential to change the world. Our only limitation is our imagination. We choose to appreciate that getting older is a gift, but growing old is optional." -Simona Valanciute | President & CEO (excerpt from The San Diego Union-Tribune Retail Trends, August 6, 2017)

"Our only limitation is our imagination," said Simona Valanciute, President and CEO, as she and the board and staff opened the doors to the new Oasis center in La Mesa California.
“I can certainly say that my life has gotten better since becoming a member of Oasis,” says Thelma Willis of St. Louis, who donates to the Friends of Oasis campaign each year. “I have learned more about myself and how to keep my body and mind healthy.”
“One of the joys of giving is to be able to give back to an organization that I think is doing important work," says Tom Henry of Syracuse, NY. Oasis provides an avenue for older adults to keep learning in a friendly environment. It is an important part of who I am."
