Second Wind Dreams
We are changing the perception of aging through innovative educational programming and dreamweaving for our elders! Second Wind Dreams® focuses on those living in eldercare communities. These are our seniors who need our assistance most. Family support may be non-existent and money can be at a premium, especially for our Medicaid supported seniors. These senior adults are often our most frail - the ones who need a dream fulfilled.

Getting Help With Caregiving
Some caregivers need help when the person is in the early stages of AD. Other caregivers look for help when the person is in the later stages of AD. It's okay to seek help whenever you need it. As the person moves through the stages of AD, he or she will need more care. One reason is that medicines used to treat AD can only control symptoms, they cannot cure the disease. Symptoms, such as memory loss and confusion, will get worse over time. Because of this, you will need more help. You may feel that asking for help shows weakness or a lack of caring, but the opposite is true. Asking for help shows your strength. It means you know your limits and when to seek support.
