The CourAGE to Care
Do You Have The CourAGE to Care?
The department of gerontology launched an outreach campaign to attract new and returning students to pursue an education in aging. The campaign entitled, The CourAGE to Care, will feature students, alumni and community agencies who have The CourAGE to Care. We want others to see what we see – The CourAGE to Care in action! We look forward to sharing students, alumni, and agencies stories with you.
A dream is a life experience; a long-awaited fishing trip, multi-generational family portraits, taking a lap around the track with Mario Andretti, a second chance at a first date. Each dream is very unique to the Dreamer. Once a nomination is received, a member of Dreamweaver contacts the Dreamer and the nominator and begins working through the process. Some dreams require extensive planning and take several months to grant. Others are fulfilled within a matter of days.
A terminal diagnosis sends both the Dreamer and their family into turmoil. Dreamers are burdened, isolated, and even redefined by their physical and mental limitations. Families, on the other hand, are overwhelmed by making critical medical care decisions and reconciling the future loss of a loved one. By inspiring good memories to be found despite the effects of a life-threating illness, Dreamweaver Foundation enhances emotional, social, and spiritual health of seniors and their loved ones, too. Dreams give the gift of hope.
