TOUCHMARK AT FAIRWAY VILLAGE 2911 SE Village Loop • Vancouver, WA 98683 360-254-2866 • © 2011 Touchmark Living Centers, Inc., all rights reserved Marge Coalman, EdD Vice President of Wellness & Programs The“right”to happiness “We hold these truths to be self- evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Thomas Jefferson Is it a right or a privilege—the right to happiness, that is? Whatever your interpretation of the wording of the Declaration of Independence, it has become a multimillion-dollar business to help us all find our “right to happiness.” We may have come equipped to pursue our own version of happiness, but North Americans seem to be endowed with the pursuit-of-happiness impulse. Many have the urge to find that greener pasture or nirvana … just over the hillside (or online, for that matter). What does that mean? It means that the outdated definition of doing more, owning more, conquering the next challenge has become an ambition to “best” our neighbors, whether by straight-out purchase or credit. The snatch-and-grab phenomenon has become a job description for many and an “oh well” for our neighbors. Interestingly, this is not true of those who live long and well. Studies repeatedly tell us that philanthropy and a spirit of giving are essential to well- being. While it may not be the barn-raising or neighborhood party in this day and age, the impulse to help others is deeply imbedded. All of the current studies on “happiness” bear out the fact that compassion, concern, and action (in the way of helping hands or physical donations) make a difference in the quality of life we all seek. So, pass up the infomercials and appeals you get in your mailbox to “feel good about yourself” with this tape or class. Release even an ongoing commitment to “feel good.” Instead, contact the Full Life wellness team at Touchmark at Fairway Village to get involved in programs and services that do make a difference. CLUB NEWSFITNESS PERSONAL TRAINER AWARD LIFE STORY PERSONAL CARE PERSON-CENTERED CARE AQUATIC Now offering most advanced version of balance assessment technology available in Clark County The new NeuroCom® Balance Master® assessment and rehabilitation system has arrived at the club. The Balance Master is one of the most advanced tools of its kind. Through interactive computer technology, the system identifies and evaluates a person’s unique balance and movement patterns. Using this information, the equipment- trained fitness expert can then design customized treatment plans. The system also has the capability to offer real-time, instant visual biofeedback as people perform the exercises. In addition, Touchmark’s version includes NeuroGames™ software that allows people to “play” computerized games by shifting their center of gravity. This also exercises the brain, and recent research has shown performing simultaneous physical and mental exercises is one of the best brain-health activities there is.
