Respite Care

Caregivers often give so much time and energy to others that they neglect their own needs. Stoney River Marshfield and Stoney River Ramsey offer short-term respite stays in safe, well-appointed communities with compassionate and engaging team members. Caregivers can take time off for vacation or to simply refresh with peace of mind.  

Respite stays are more affordable and easier to arrange
 than you may think.

Welcome Woodworkers! 
Longtime woodworker and Stoney River Ramsey  resident, Don, is sharing his skills and inspiring others to pick up a hammer and chisel to see what they can create at a new Woodworking Club. Residents, like Don, are encouraged to share their passions and take 
leadership roles in the community. 


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.
