Up, Up, And Away!September 26, 2017 | Sunshine Villa
One day, a member of our staff was talking with resident Art T. about Sunshine Villa's WOW! Moments. They discussed what residents had done in the past, and brainstormed what Art would like to for his special moment. She mentioned the idea of taking a helicopter ride. Immediately, Art's face lit up with excitement. He said he had never ridden one, and if he could do anything for his WOW! Moment, he would want to do this. After their conversation, she was determined to make Art's desire to fly into a reality.
The following day, she made arrangements with the Watsonville Specialized Helicopter Service. A few days later, Art was climbing with assistance into a bright blue helicopter with an enthusiastic smile. Up, up, and away he flew! When Art landed, he expressed his gratitude for having the opportunity to fly at his age. She made a picture collage of his helicopter adventure. Art shared the collage with his family, and they could hardly believe he rode in a helicopter. Art's special day was incredibly rewarding and a WOW! Moment for the books!
