About St. Louis Oasis

St. Louis Oasis is a local chapter of a network of nonprofit centers under The Oasis Institute entering its 40th year of operation as a pioneer in healthy aging. It was founded in 1982 by native St. Louisan Marylen Mann and a group of educators and volunteers during a time when many programs for older adults were oriented around juvenile games and passive activities. Mann, determined to do better for older adults and seniors who dedicated decades of progress and contribution to society, cultivated an organization empowering them to continue utilizing their intellectual capacity and remain active members of the community. Oasis pioneered stimulating educational, wellness, and volunteer programs that helped older adults stay healthy and engaged within their communities. Oasis is active in over 250 communities and reaches more than 50,000 individuals each year. Humana is a Medicare Advantage [HMO, HMO SNP, PPO, PPO SNP and PFFS] organization with a Medicare contract. Enrollment in any Humana plan depends on contract renewal.
