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!

Firehouse duty

Firefighters are heroes and let’s not lie, the trucks are cool too! Steve Thompson has a love for service vehicles–anything with “bells and whistles” like no other. When a staff member at The Oaks at Woodfield heard about this, we reached out to the local Fire Chief at the Grand Blanc Fire department.

The Chief was happy to give Steve and several other residents a ride! Steve grew a huge smile at the sight of the truck pulling into the parking lot. He looked like a kid in a candy store! He had a blast being chauffeured around and being able to hear the siren up close. Continue Reading

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.


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.
