Second Wind Dreams® award-winning Dreams Program sheds light on the positive aspects of aging. It is a powerful way to connect society to a forgotten truth about seniors: the truth that age does not erase hopes and dreams. Our program has fulfilled tens of thousands of dreams since our organization's inception in 1997. As each Dream comes true, we witness a ripple effect as the impact of the dream spreads from the elder to everyone who helped make it a reality. Ranging from the simple to the sublime, the following categories help us realize what kind of dreams our elders desire.
These are dreams that may seem small, but are in fact some of the most powerful because it takes so little to make elders' dreams come true.
This category of dreams reunites dreamers with long-lost loved ones.
After many years of being away from something near and dear to an elder, many just want to do something one more time. This category is most common for our sleeping Dreamers, those living with Dementia.
This category is the most popular of all of the dreams since the program began. Elders just want to have fun!
