Happy Hour Gone Wild
After Happy Hour cocktails, some Victory Centre of Vernon Hills residents took a walk on the wild side and decided to get inked! Not to worry, the tattoos were temporary, but the fun memories will last forever.
After nine years, Oak Hill Supportive Living’s beloved Executive Director Jan Hollenkamp Castillo (left) retired and passed the torch to Oak Hill's NEW Executive Director Jill Callahan. Residents and team members were thrilled to celebrate their longtime, “one-of-a-kind” leader and look forward to creating new memorable moments with Jill.
Team members cooked up a lovely Memorial Day barbecue in Victory Centre of Roseland’s courtyard, where residents gathered with friends and family to enjoy each other’s company while paying tribute to America’s fallen soldiers.
A Living Symbol of
Peace & Love
Doyle, the therapy dove, ruffled residents’ feathers in the best way possible with his sweet coos, soft feathers and gentle disposition. Thank you to Steve from MeridianHealth for sharing Doyle the rescue therapy dove with us.
While spending time outdoors this summer, Victory Centre of Bartlett residents discovered beautiful, painted rocks in gardens surrounding the community. Wondering who left these little works of art for us to find is such a joyful mystery. Thank you to the artist!
During Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) Week, Pathway to Living celebrated our wonderful Life Enrichment Aides (LEAs). LEAs are always there to lend our residents a helping hand and support them however needed.
