Virtual Dementia Training & Other Programs

How a personalized Tree of Lights gift can honor a loved one and improve the lives of older adults.

Earlier this year, Wesley Community Foundation provided funding for Virtual Dementia Tour kits which are now being used with great success to help the Wesley Des Moines Health Center staff get a first-hand understanding of what life is like for people living with dementia.

This holiday season, you have an opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of Wesley residents and staff. As a not-for-profit organization, Wesley Community Foundation’s enriching programs depend on charitable gifts from caring people like you.

Each gift helps enhance the lives of others with successful life enriching programs for residents and training opportunities for staff.

With your gift, we hang a personalized Tree of Lights ornament on a special holiday tree on our Des Moines, Lea Hill or Bradley Park campuses to be celebrated by all throughout the holiday season.
