Dare to Dream

Resident Vivian at her Dare to Dream event at Arlington Place Oelwein in Oelwein, Iowa


While visiting with Vivian and one of her long-time friends one day after Happy Hour, Life Enrichment Coordinator Shenita learned what a great golfer Vivian used to be. The trio discussed the coming signs of spring and the need to get out for putting practice. That’s when Shenita decided to bring the putting green to Vivian! While getting in her putting practice from the comfort of her home, Vivian was all smiles. After each swing she would exclaim “Yippie!” As she lined up each putt, she would assess her stance and strategize her next swing. Vivian recalled many fond memories while getting in some putting practice with Shenita and her dear friend.

Resident Irene with her family at a dare to dream event from Arlington Place Oelwein in Oelwein, Iowa.


Irene lived a simple life in the country near Stout, Iowa. She went to church every Sunday and helped on the farm. Irene loves to reminisce about her church. Life Enrichment Coordinator, Shari, and Lead Resident Assistant, Kristin, learned about an upcoming Family Reunion that Irene was not going to be able to attend. Shari and Kristin took it upon themselves to make sure Irene made it to that reunion! They picked up Irene and a few family members in the Arlington Place bus and headed out of a road trip! First, they took Irene to see her husband’s grave in Grundy Center and drove through Holland to see the homes of both her grandparents. Next, they went to visit her church in Stout and stopped at the gravesite of her parents. Finally, the crew made it to the Family Reunion in Parkersburg. Irene was able to see nieces, nephews, cousins and best of all, her sister.
