Dare to Dream


Meet Bill. Bill was an engineer at Fisher Controls before retiring to Mesa, Arizona for some 20+ years. Bill and his wife Ellen moved back to Marshalltown in June of 2017 anticipating the opening of our new addition. After only a few months he lost his wife to a brain aneurysm. He is a very quiet man and during this time of grieving I would find him sitting on our front porch crying when I came into work.


Helen has always owned Boston Terriers, and has had to say goodbye to them as they crossed over the bridge to puppy Heaven. Sara, our new Memory Care Coordinator, was chatting with Helen one day and the conversation lead to Sara learning about Helen’s love for Boston’s and missing their companionship. Sara took it upon herself to make a call to Diamond in the Ruff, knowing it was a long shot that a Boston Terrier would be available for adoption.


Charming always wanted to take a ride on a helicopter. She had a brother in the Navy who flew them and Charming and her late husband had plans that fell through at one point. Charming mentioned her dream to Jessica one day at Glenwood Place Assisted Living and the wheels got in motion to make it happen. A ride was set up through Iowa Helicopter and Charming, her daughter Judy and son-in-law Mike took a 30 minute flight around Des Moines.
