Christmas in July   

While on summer break, Santa's reindeer enjoyed the tasty treats that Heartis Village of Peoria  residents brought them when they visited Snowman's Reindeer Farm in Canton, IL. 

Awe Shucks!

Heartis Village of Peoria residents shucked bushels of hand-picked sweet corn for picnics and popcorn. "Eating locally grown, seasonal food is better for you, the environment and your taste buds," says Pathway to Living's Director of Culinary Experience Eli Ayoub. 


Summer Lovin'
Tell me more, tell me more...like when the movie, "Grease," played on the big screen in the outdoor courtyard, Heartis Village of Orland Park residents couldn't help singing along to some of their favorite tunes from the soundtrack.  


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.
