Carol Cummings, Director of Optimum Life Development at Brookdale Place at Fall Creek and Caitlin Oestreich, Life Enrichment Coordinator at Brookdale Place at Fall Creek are in the Indy Style studio to discuss their new program 'Wish of a Lifetime'
Wishes are ageless, timeless, and priceless. To seniors, they are also testimonials to hope that there is no age limit on their desire to live life to the fullest. Brookdale Senior Living and Jeremy Bloom's Wish of a Lifetime (JBWOL) today announced a multiyear initiative to grant wishes for hundreds of seniors nationwide.
"All too often, older generations are overlooked as society yields to the dynamics and pressures of our modern culture," said Jeremy Bloom, Jeremy Bloom's Wish of a Lifetime founder. "I created Wish of a Lifetime to change our views about aging and remind future generations about the value, wisdom and dreams of older adults. Teaming up with Brookdale will take the initiative to the next level, so we can expand our message and serve more seniors than I ever imagined possible."
Both organizations have previously been granting wishes to seniors independently. As a result of this new alliance, hundreds of wishes will be granted annually.
