What is Live a Dream?

Live A Dream is a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the lives of seniors across the U.S. Our mission is to learn their stories, embrace their passions, and create experiences they can cherish forever. In this way, we hope to give back a little of what they have given, and continue to give.

A Community of Compassionate Volunteers helps us turn wishful thinking into wonderful reality. Without our interns and volunteers, we would not be able to impact the lives of so many seniors. We invite you to share in our mission and join us in fulfilling a dream today!

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Michigan and North Ohio are filled with Detroit Tigers Fans! When Live A Dream was able to secure 70 tickets to their big game against the Houston Astros (winner of the 2017 World Series) our Trilogy Campuses could not wait. From getting every resident ready, to sending the buses off to the game, it created a large impact for everyone involved to see each resident light up with joy. Continue Reading

Chris and KISS Rock and Roll All Night

Chris, 52, is a KISS super fan. Their music is kept on constant rotation in his CD player. On the back of his wheelchair, a sparkling KISS license plate proudly advertises the band’s world domination. And when you enter his room, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a corner that isn’t covered in KISS posters and memorabilia.

When he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, Chris convinced himself that he would never get to see the band perform live again. When Live a Dream heard this, they checked KISS’ touring schedule and got to work.

We Grant Dreams as Unique as the Seniors We Serve

Everyday Dreams

These smaller dreams make an enormous impact! Everyday Dreams cost less than $250 and include dreams that seniors may think of every day, like riding a motorcycle again, celebrating a very special anniversary dinner, or even going zip-lining.

Bucket List Dreams

These larger-than-life dreams cost a max of $5,000, and have included a trip to Indy 500 Practice Day, a Hot Air Balloon Ride, Skydiving, and meeting KISS. If it’s on a senior’s bucket list, we can help make it happen!

Group Dreams

Some dreams are even sweeter when they’re shared with friends. Group Dreams consist of 20-200 people, and often involve partnerships with outside organizations. These dreams have included a VIP trip on the Belle of Louisville, a Detroit Tigers Game, and Tethered Hot Air Balloon Experiences.

Honor Flight

We’re proud to partner with Honor Flight to fulfill the dreams of seniors who have served our country. Live a Dream will pay for guardians to accompany senior veterans on these special trips to Washington, D.C., which include deluxe tour bus service, meals, snacks, souvenirs and more.

DreamVR

The arrival of Virtual Reality in our world has opened the door to nearly limitless possibilities. With this technology, we can soar through the skies, explore ancient ruins, and experience life in ways that were once only possible in our dreams.
