Navigate from non Tab page to active Tab Page


I have three tab pages. One is running a timer and counters. I also have some non-tab pages I navigate to via menu selections. If I push to the page, I can return to the Active tab. However if i use setRoot(SomePage), is there a way to get back to the an active Tabs page such that my counters and timer is still running and do not have to be reset.

Any suggestions or leads would be greatly appreciated. Using Ionic 2.
