Cycling without Age

Some Alexian Village residents got to relive the thrill of cruising on a bicycle despite thinking that their bike-riding days were in the past. What’s more, they didn’t even have to peddle!

The program Cycling Without Age gives older adults the opportunity to remain active and experience the joy of cruising by neighborhood scenery with the wind in their hair. The program also builds bridges between generations with each passenger and cyclist having the chance to talk and get to know each other during the ride.

What’s Old is New Again
From as far south as Calumet City to as far north as Bartlett, Victory Centre residents are getting in on one of 2020's hottest fashion trends, DIY tie-dying. This colorful activity has had a popular resurgence with people from age 3 to 93 who are looking for fun and easy activities to do at home.

Voter Inspiration!
A former election judge, Gloria of Alexian Village, advises others, especially her fellow seniors, to “make your voice heard!” The top election issues concerning Gloria are the coronavirus, economy and the candidates’ moral character. 
“You’re in a land of opportunity, and every vote counts,” says Gloria.

"In diversity there is beauty and there is strength." - Maya Angelou

This quote from American poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou rings true for Victory Centre of Roseland residents, who celebrated the diversity in their own community with a piece of custom artwork. The piece features each resident's unique handprint as colorful leaves connected to one single tree.

Celebrating the Seasons
On one of the last summer-like afternoons, Victory Centre of Galewood residents hosted a luau-themed party to bid farewell to a wonderful season and welcome fall’s arrival. Residents enjoyed each other’s company, from a safe distance, along with plenty of food, games and music in the community courtyard.
In Appreciation
Every so often a family member shares a note that makes all of the team's extra effort feel worthwhile. Please see what one Victory Centre of Bartlett family member had to say about her family's experience. 

"My mom has been at Victory Centre of Bartlett since January 2020, and we are so grateful she moved in before the pandemic hit. Knowing she has been in good hands this entire time has been very reassuring. Not having to worry about her safety has been a huge relief as we navigated this new way of life. The staff has been diligent with their efforts to keep all of the residents safe and have handled delicate family issues with kindness and professionalism. We are happy we selected Victory Centre of Bartlett.”

Scoring Professional CONNECTIONS
Victory Centre of Vernon Hills team members found a way to gather with each other and other area senior living professionals safely at an outdoor tailgating-themed event. They enjoyed good food and good company and, for the win, they continued to inspire, educate and support one another during this challenging time when expert collaboration is more important than ever.
Getting GROOVY
For the latest art in the park (or parking lot!) project, Victory Centre of Park Forest artists created colorful works of peace and love inspired by a groovy 1960s vibe.
