  4. 4. TOUCHMARK AT FAIRWAY VILLAGE 2911 SE Village Loop • Vancouver, WA 98683 360-254-2866 • Touchmark.com © 2011 Touchmark Living Centers, Inc., all rights reserved 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.” by Touchmark team member Deb Kincaid What comes to mind when someone hears the word concierge? The friendly, smiling person in a hotel lobby who—like the proverbial fairy godmother— makes wishes come true? Well, the Touchmark Fulfilled Living Concierge Service team members don’t wave wands, but in dozens of ways they assist Touchmark residents to live the Full Life. “Launched about a year ago, Touchmark’s Fulfilled Living Concierge Service has proven to be vital and practical,” says Deb Kincaid, Concierge team member. “We offer event planning, pet and plant care, alterations, fun monthly specials, and more!” One of the team’s most popular services is the airport shuttle. Touchmark is located less than 15 minutes from Portland International, and it’s a quick, comfortable, and affordable trip in the Town Car for residents—and visiting friends and family. Team members Patty, Leslie, Amy, and Deb also provide personal assistance and basic first aid. All four are certified nursing assistants. They invite you to visit the Concierge office, located in the lobby. Let them assist you to live the Full Life! Concierge it!
