Making Dreams A Reality

Hilltop Health Care Center has made many dreams come true over the course of the summer.  Gerald and Edie Lies went to a local baseball game at Pearl Lake. Gerald has always loved baseball and it was a beautiful day for watching a game. Art Donnay went fishing at the Cold Spring Lion’s Park. Art has always enjoyed fishing and enjoys the W-Art-Donnayoutdoors. He spends every day that he can outside soaking up the sun. Hilltop has made more than 30 resident dreams come true since the beginning of the program! Hilltop started the dream program in August 2012 and plans to keep the dream program going forever.
