Maureen Takes the Cake!   

The men's club was enjoying a luncheon and presentation about
America's favorite pastime, led by resident Phil, when Business Office Manager Maureen
scored a homerun with her homemade baseball cake! That's how the Aspired team rolls. 

Growing Friendships... and Beards?

Aspired residents are proud to be part of the Darien Garden club! Garden club members visit regularly to help residents grow flowers, veggies and beards (oh my!). They help create lovely outdoor spaces where resident can connect with nature and each other.      



The Camp VIVA! summertime "extreme" wellness program is a favorite among Pathway to Living residents and team member alike, who enjoy the break from routine and spending time in the great outdoors. Happy campers fish, swim, boat, story-tell, hike, craft and cook in the fresh air.    

Supersized Drum Circle 

Drumming in unison, about 50 residents from Pathway to Living communities throughout Chicagoland rocked Aspired Living of Westmont, where they gathered for a supersized drumming circle. Percussionist and storyteller Helen Bond laid down a beat and musicians followed, thumping their drums, sticks and shakers. In addition to heart-pounding fun, drumming and rhythm circles offer a host of health and wellness benefits. 


Researchers have been tracking people's levels of happiness and life satisfaction for years. Surprisingly, their findings show that life's later years are among the happiest years. 

The relationship between age and happiness makes the shape of a U-curve. Happiness tends to drop off after age 18, hit its lowest point during the middle-age years in the 40s and rises again from the early 50s through the 60s and 70s and even beyond.
