The Pilot Club of Canyon Lake
“adopted” Oak Tree Assisted
Living facility as a battleground to fight back against Alzheimer’s Disease and to improve the quality of life. In Spring of 2010 we purchased a Wii game for the facility, and proceeded to work with the residents on a regular basis. We purchased a second game and ran two games simultaneously, doubling our capacity for resident gamers, until Oak Tree census declined.
In late 2017 we were asked to adopt a second facility, Brookdale Senior Living. We moved our second
game there and added another day each
month for our Pilots to serve.
Wii is an excellent way for healthy, positive, encouraging women to physically interact with elderly people in varying stages of Alzheimer’s, dementia, arthritic degeneration, stroke rehabilitation, etc.
We DO make a difference!
