Knit Happens   

Azpira Place of Lake Zurich residents are helping to keep the art of knitting and crocheting
 alive by passing down this traditional craft know-how to local Girl Scouts. The activity fosters friendships across generations, while helping the girls build better self-esteem, 
communication skills and problem-solving abilities.  

Welcome Bugs the Bunny! 

Introducing Azpira Place of Breton's newest memory care resident, Bugs the Bunny! Having a pet rabbit makes the community feel more like home, creates a sense of purpose for residents who help care for the pet and brings joy to all those who cuddle the bunny.



The Camp VIVA! summertime "extreme" wellness program is a favorite among Pathway to Living residents and team members 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.
