What’s on your bucket list? Granting the dangerous, heartbreaking wishes of Philly seniors by Herold Courier

“For the last two years, the staff at Wesley, headquartered in Warminster, Pennsylvania has been granting the wishes of senior residents across its six retirement communities in the Philadelphia area under a program called WEL (Wesley Enhanced Living) Wishes

“We want our residents to wake up with purpose and look forward to their day,” said Lisa Haino, director of marketing for Wesley. “Just because you’re aging doesn’t mean you stop living.”

Wish recipients are typically nominated by staffers, who listen closely for hints while talking with residents. The seniors can also apply to have their wishes fulfilled.

“Everybody has a story, but sometimes you get so wrapped up in the everyday you don’t really think about what that is,” Haino said. “But then they come up with these wishes and they’re really inspiring. You see the talents they have and we get to learn about the residents’ background.”

The wishes have ranged from those so heart-pounding they require a doctor’s clearance, like skydiving or a trip to Terror Behind the Walls.”

  1. Nice information, really appreciate your time and dictation on this work.

  2. Love the inspirational photos that you posted here as well as the video of a TED talk you shared. Its the inspiration i’m looking for the day. Thanks.

    • Thanks for the feedback, Jamie Cordon. Inspiration helps us pursue all of the aspirations in our life. We’re currently reading Simon Sinek’s, “Start with Why.” Sinek distinguishes between formal authority that uses manipulation to motivate and leaders that inspire. Inspiration produces better results as individuals and for teams or cultures. We love motivational TED talks too.
