Mike’s Railroad Dream

Mike is a resident at Azura of Oconomowoc, and has loved trains since the beginning! He took interest in train sets and has special memories building them as a kid with his dad. As he got older, he enjoyed looking at different trains and loved to pick them out at gift shops. We spoke with Mike’s wife, Patty (pictured above with Mike) and she shared that he would love nothing more than to spend an afternoon looking at and learning about trains. Thanks to Stacy and her team at Walthers, Mike and Patty spent a day doing just that! Mike loved looking at the model trains running the tracks, reading books and learning about the process of model trains! At the end of the day, Mike shook the showroom assistant and said, “You have no idea what you’ve done for me. Thank you so very much.” Even though Mike has dementia, he understood what a special day this was for him – this is why we do what we do!
