Rescue Dog Parade

Victory Centre of Bartlett  rescued their beloved community dog, Daisy, from Anderson Animal Shelter and continues to support their mission to find homeless pets forever homes. To showcase some adoptable pets, Bartlett hosted an adorable costume pet parade much to the delight of residents! 

Naturally, Gardening is a Go!
Victory Center of South Chicago  gardeners tended to their blossoming flower beds and growing herb garden to create the perfect setting for outdoor family visits. 
Oak Hill Supportive Living  gardeners trimmed herbs and thinned cucumbers while patiently waiting to harvest radishes and strawberries. 
A Budding Friendship
Liliana, the young daughter of  Victory Centre of Joliet  Executive Director Nicole, and Rosemary, Victory Centre of Joliet resident, have formed an adorable pen-pal relationship, sharing letters and gifts such as the flowerpot from Rosemary and drawing from Liliana. Residents love corresponding with family, friends and community members, especially now while they are staying safe at home.

Let the Music Play

The outdoor patio was the perfect space for  Victory Centre of River Oaks  residents to gather in the shade while socially distancing to enjoy a live performance by the popular entertainer Frank Rossi. Pathway to Living communities are taking advantage of the nice weather to bring back entertainment and provide residents with positive memorable moments.
Aloha Hawaii
As part of the VIVA! World Tour program’s virtual exploration of Hawaii and its culture,  Victory Centre of Roseland  residents prepared for a luau with homemade grass skirts and leis.  Victory Centre of Joliet  residents created origami tulips, practicing the art of paper-folding that the Japanese brought to the Hawaiian culture. 
Every month, resident arm-chair travelers visit different parts of the world from the safety and comfort of home through the World Tour program.

Jumping on the
Hamilton Band Wagon

Victory Centre of Vernon Hills  residents checked their tickets at the door for the television premiere of the Broadway musical Hamilton, and they are still singing the tunes around the community!

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.
