Standing Ovation for
Songs by Heart  

The music plays on for Aspired Living’s A Knew Day memory support residents in Prospect Heights thanks to the now virtual Songs by Heart music therapy program. 

Residents typically enjoy in-person weekly performances by professional singers who are trained in therapeutic techniques to engage audience members who have dementia and inspire them to clap, sing along and dance.

This online Songs by Heart performance deserves a standing ovation for the way the singer gets our songstress to sing along.

The Pathway to a New Normal

Life’s changes caused by COVID-19 came fast and furious. They say that with change comes growth, and we at Pathway to Living have grown exponentially. 

The degree to which we have experienced significant success in unprecedented conditions is primarily due to quick and decisive action, a detailed road map and consistent follow-through. As a result, we are ready to welcome the next big change – relaxed sheltering. The path to a new normal, while not easy, leads to the renewal of long-awaited freedoms to move about, gather in small groups and, last but not least, visit with family in person once again. 

Pathway to Living is proceeding with caution and progressing on the path to a new normal. 

Temporary and permanent positions are available.
