Don Takes Flight

Many years ago, Don bought a plane for his x-ray business since he was traveling all over the states. He went to Waukesha and took all the classes to become a pilot and he flew his plane frequently for his business. Don had many hours for a private pilot and has so many stories of incidents that were kind of scary, and some of his most extraordinary flights! Don flew to Colorado, Canada, and many other places. He absolutely LOVED it! What started out as a smart business move for him, turned out to be a passion and great joy of his. Since being diagnosed with dementia, Don has had to move to Azura Memory Care and has not been able to do what he loves most – fly a plane. With the help of Azura’s MOSAIC Dreams Program and TLS Global, Don will have the chance to fly a plane again – with a little help. On Friday, September 9th, Don and his Azura team took flight at Lawrence J.Timmerman airport at 11 AM! This was truly such a special experience for Don as he refuses to let dementia take anything away from him.
