AFA Sleeping Dreamers Grant

When two care-focused organizations team up...
...even more dreams come true.

The Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) and Second Wind Dreams(r) (SWD), an international, nonprofit organization committed to changing the perception of aging through the fulfillment of dreams and educational programs that help caregivers understand the physical and mental challenges facing people with dementia, are teaming up to introduce AFA Sleeping Dreamers-a joint program designed to make the dreams of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses a reality.

Members of both AFA and SWD may apply for fulfillment of an AFA Sleeping Dream at The dream application will require stipulations of the type of dream that is requested along with a brief summary of the dream and all budget details. Sleeping Dreams will only encompass dreams that allow the dreamer to relive a past experience or fulfill a dream that the dreamer talks about to the family or staff. AFA and SWD will grant a minimum of two dreams per month.
