Many seniors in a retirement community may not have local family to help fulfill their wishes, nor do they have disposable income to maintain and enrich their quality of life. Often, the smallest gesture is appreciated by someone who is at the end of his/her life. Over the years, many of these individuals have had unfulfilled dreams, hopes, and wishes which this program helps to fulfill. By granting a special wish, a senior who suffers from chronic pain feels like a king or queen for the day.
This program will enrich the quality of their lives and make them feel special and that someone cares about their well being.
The long-term effect will make residents living at Cedar Village feel good about themselves and to let them know that it is never too late to dream. Over the course of the year, approximately 170 individuals will benefit.
