  4. 4. TOUCHMARK AT MT. BACHELOR VILLAGE Issue 8, 2013 | page 4 Marge Coalman, EdD Vice President of Wellness & Programs Movements rooted in eternity “Thomas Svobada arrived at the nursing home in NE Portland when the cherry trees outside his window were bare. … Now the blossoms have peaked and on a warm spring afternoon they drift onto his shoulders as he sits outside in his wheelchair.” – David Stabler, reporter, The Oregonian Thomas is Oregon’s most prolific and performed composer. For the past seven months, he has been recovering from a debilitating stroke that affected his right side with partial paralysis. It happened suddenly when he and his wife of nearly 50 years were preparing dinner. For weeks, his recovery was slow, but then he began improving, and he continues to make progress. And he continues to move people through his music. Do any of us plan for this kind of an event? No one I have interviewed ever has. One of the lessons from this heart- wrenching and heartwarming story is that legacy and giving back are the essence of who and what we are—today and tomorrow. Thomas is known as a composer whose music is played around the world, a teacher to a generation of music students, a mentor to scores of composers, an amazing pianist, and a playful friend. People move to Touchmark for many reasons. Most will tell you, though, that they wish they had moved here sooner. All appreciate the fullness of life and opportunities for living— and continuing to create—their legacy. Each person has a life story and talents to share, and overwhelmingly residents are optimistic and grateful for the options available at Touchmark. To find out more about the possibilities of living a {FULL} Life and providing a personal legacy, contact a member of the Full Life team. As Robert Schuller said—and others repeat—“If it’s going to be, it’s up to me.” Construction update The framing has been completed on the exterior entry canopy, which connects the existing Cliff Lodge to the new wing of the Terrace Lodge. The curved beams have also been installed. Construction crew will work on the roofing of the connecting canopy next. The rough grading of the new Cliff Lodge courtyard is finished as well as the block retaining wall. Crews are focusing on the exterior siding and stone installation, and they have already poured the concrete retaining wall for the memory care courtyard. Interior projects include drywall, framing, and installation of plumbing, electrical, and mechanical.

Classic cars roll in for show Touchmark’s resident financial firm Rosell Wealth Management hosted a classic car show for residents and guests that included numerous restored beauties in a wide variety of years, makes, and models, ranging from a 1932 Ford Roadster to a rare 1961 Chevrolet Corvette. “The concept for the car show stemmed from many conversations with clients who own classic automobiles, and this was an opportunity to share them with the community,” says David Rosell, president of Rosell Wealth Management, who also showcased his classic 1956 Morris Minor convertible known as Peaches. “People loved the event, which brought back a bit of nostalgia as they talked about owning these same cars years earlier.” (Rosell Wealth Management also serves the broader Central Oregon area.)
