Second Wind Dreams, Inc.
June 9, 2011

I first came upon Second Wind Dreams when I was searching for sensitivity training programs to use in my own organization in Israel. The Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT) fit the bill exactly and I quickly made contact with Second Wind Dreams to arrange for personal training in conducting the VDT. I can only use superlatives to describe the fantastic work that Second Wind Dreams does to bring meaning to the lives of the elderly, through the organization's many volunteers around the world. Working with the founder of Second Wind Dreams was an exceptional experience for me and gave me the inspiration and initiative to push ahead with helping provide elders with the dignity and compassion they deserve.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

interaction with its founder and staff and receiving their expert training in how to conduct the Virtual Dementia Tour.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its work geographically to include more countries.

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & I increased my understanding of the difficulties caused by dementia and old age.
