Second Wind Dreams, Inc. Overview
Programs: Second Wind Dreams focuses on those living in eldercare communities. These are our seniors who most need our assistance. Family support may be non-existent, and money can be at a premium, especially for our Medicaid-supported seniors. The program works within the eldercare community where a dreamweaver is identified. This person may be an employee of the eldercare community, or the dreamweaver could be a volunteer from the outside community. Armed with a manual that will include everything that the dreamweaver will need to get started, the resident's dreams are uncovered. Then the dreamweaver solicits help from the outside community to make the dreams come true. As each dream unfolds, the local community sees the wonder of older adults and understands that each stage of life is unique and bountiful. Often their new perception leads to long-lasting partnerships with facilities and special relationships with residents. In addition, Second Wind Dreams offers seminars, conventions, newsletters, phone consultations and a web site to assist in perpetuating our goals.
