SmartLinx Solutions Announces Partnership with Second Wind Dreams
EDISON, NJ–SmartLinx Solutions, a leader in workforce management solutions, today announced a partnership with Second Wind Dreams® (SWD®), an internationally known nonprofit organization that helps aging seniors realize lifelong dreams. Through this corporate partnership, SmartLinx will provide support to help Second Wind Dreams continue improving the quality of life for older adults by changing the perception of aging and supporting residents in Long-Term Care centers.
“SmartLinx and Second Wind Dreams share a common mission to enhance the life experience of our aging population. We’re honored to partner with Second Wind Dreams on this journey,” says SmartLinx CEO Marina Aslanyan.
As the world’s population ages, Second Wind Dreams strives to promote dignity and improve elder care by changing the perception of aging across the world. The organization enhances the quality of life for elders by fulfilling dreams and improving dementia care through its patented Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT®). The VDT is a scientifically-proven training method designed to build sensitivity and awareness in caregivers of people with dementia. Presented in 20 countries and experienced by over 3 million people, the VDT is changing how dementia care is provided.
“We are excited to partner with SmartLinx, an innovative organization with a heart. Their support for Second Wind Dreams is invaluable to our organization and those we serve,” says Second Wind Dreams CEO Gwenyth Johnson.
Through the partnership, SmartLinx is helping dreams come true for many Long-Term Care and Assisted Living residents. Dreams can take many forms, such as reuniting seniors with loved ones, getting back on the dance floor, or riding in a hot air balloon.
SmartLinx recently helped a former music teacher relive her joy of playing the violin. Miss Thelma loved teaching and playing the violin but lost her beloved instrument after loaning it out a few years ago. Thanks to SmartLinx, she will be filling the halls of Elmcroft of Braeswood in Houston with the beautiful sound of violin music and loving every moment.
Like Second Wind Dreams, SmartLinx is committed to helping Long-Term Care staff better identify with and care for residents as well as provide personal support.
