Lifetime Wishes & Experiences
Fulfilled in Partnership with Wish of a Lifetime.
Understanding our residents’ desires, dreams, and wishes remain at the heart of what we do every day. Our goal to help each resident live their Optimum Life® can be an exciting journey.
Through Brookdale’s partnership with Wish of a Lifetime, the Brookdale Wishes program offers another purposeful opportunity to enhance our residents’ overall Brookdale experience.
Both Brookdale and Wish of a Lifetime provide a helping hand in making some of the dreams of our residents come true. Residents at Brookdale communities nationwide are invited to share and submit their wishes to Wish of a Lifetime; through the granting of these lifelong wishes, our residents are able to find fulfillment in the six dimensions of our wellness platform: purposeful, emotional, physical, social, spiritual, and intellectual.
With the partnership of Brookdale, Wish of a Lifetime has granted more than 611 lifelong wishes for Brookdale senior residents. These life-enriching wishes are designed to reconnect loved ones, renew and celebrate passions, fulfill lifelong dreams and commemorate service. We're proud to say we granted more than 75 wishes to our veterans last year alone. It's a small way for us to thank them for their contribution to our nation, and honor them for their time in the service.
Brookdale and Wish of a Lifetime are engaged in a multi-year initiative to grant wishes for hundreds of seniors annually nationwide. The relationship builds on the joint commitment of each organization to serve seniors and raise awareness about the importance of helping to keep older adults dreaming, daring and discovering.
With the granting of each wish, our seniors will have an opportunity to fulfill those dreams they had placed on the shelf and take action as a result of the mutual commitment of both organizations.
