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 the 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 games,
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!
