Health and Wellness Programming
An enthusiastic celebration of life!
Pathway’s signature, award-winning VIVA! lifestyle fosters purpose and offers a whole new way of aging healthfully and happily. VIVA! offers a wealth of opportunities to enrich lives through social, educational and spiritual pursuits, as well as the chance for people to share their skills, talents and passions with others through resident-led activities.
Chair Chi and Yoga
Victory Centre of South Chicago offers a popular Chair Chi program, a gentle exercise to help people who cannot stand or have balance issues receive the benefits of traditional Tai Chi. The many benefits include balance, flexibility, range of motion, strength, energy, pain relief, stress reduction and peace of mind. Some residents are getting these very same benefits by practicing traditional and modified yoga also offered at the community.
Partnering with the best, VIVA! Plus provides truly integrated, patient-centered care
Victory Centre’s VIVA! Plus program brings together an impressive group of third-party healthcare partners to give residents access to high-quality, coordinated medical and behavioral care options—all conveniently delivered in the privacy and comfort of residents’ own homes.

Physicians, pharmacists, home health nurses, physical and rehabilitation therapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses and hospice specialists all serve as an extension of Victory Centre’s team. All providers are carefully selected for quality, share Victory Centre’s holistic VIVA! philosophy and work together to provide coordinated, seamless care.
