  3. 3. CAPTURING DELIGHT{FULL} MOMENTS Research on cognition and memory is finding that people who participate in more mentally stimulating activities have a slower rate of decline in memory (Wilson, et al, 2013, Journal of Neurology). Apps and websites like Fit Brains, Lumosity, Tetris, Sudoku2 all work on your computer, tablet device, or smart phone. Touchmark recently conducted a webinar with team members that covered cutting-edge ideas for activities and cognitive stimulation. We now are working to develop programming throughout Touchmark communities that takes advantage of this technology for enhancing memory. If you own or intend to purchase a computer, tablet, or smart phone and would like to participate in learning how to use it, please let us know. Also, if you have a favorite website or app that helps build the brain, please send an email to Let’s learn together what can benefit all of us as we exercise our brains and boost memory. Do you have a computer, iPad, or smart phone? Brian Pryor Executive Vice President The Touchmark Easter Egg Hunt helped raise money for the Angel Fund, which assists school children with needed classroom supplies and clothing. Touchmark donated $650 to the nonprofit. For the event, residents prepared more than 6,000 Easter eggs filled with various prizes for children to find throughout the Touchmark property. The families attending also received a lunch, and many contributed to the Angel Fund. Touchmark on Saddle Drive and Mountain West Bank cosponsored the annual Easter Egg Hunt and lunch.
