On June 1, 2018, we granted our second Heritage Hopes wish. Our Lincoln Village resident Suzanne Zielinkski wished for a day around her favorite animal, horses. She used to ride and take care of them as a young girl. Thanks to Helping Hands, Healing Hooves horse therapy, Suzanne’s experience was one to remember!
One of our main goals at Lincoln Village is to discover and honor our residents’ stories, uncovering the things that make them unique and re-creating moments that have made them smile. An intrinsic part of this is our unique Heritage Hopes program. Similar in structure to Make a Wish, the program grants residents from each of our communities a chance to live out one of their dreams, whether it’s to have a blow-out bash or a once-in-a-lifetime experience. In making that dream come true, we’re able to spark memories of times long gone and rekindle a sense of enthusiasm and joy for the resident.
Take a look at the wonderful wishes we’ve granted so far – and come back often to read more heartwarming stories!
