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.

The mission of Second Wind Dreams is to fulfill the dreams of those living in eldercare communities thereby enhancing their quality of life and improving the perceptions of aging. This national nonprofit organization accomplishes its goals not only by making dreams come true for our elders, but through a national network of seminars, web courses, newsletters, in-services, and manuals, all with an eye for changing society''s perception of aging. Our research shows that dreams fall into five categories, the largest of which is "dreams for fun",--showing us that our seniors are not waiting to die, but wanting to live.

As a volunteer for Second Wind Dreams, I have learned a lot about the elders living in nursing homes. I've learned that the things they desire most are often so simple to make happen. Every elder I have met has had their own story to tell and parts of every story have touched my heart in ways that... more »
