Touchmark at Meadow Lake Village - July 2014 Newsletter

  1. 1. TOUCHMARK AT MEADOW LAKE VILLAGE THE{FULL}LIFE July 2014 One-room schoolhouse museum filled with local history During a visit to the historic Pine Street School, retired school teacher and resident Betty Kusler talked about this local iconic school. She shared that in the mid-1940s, the Meridian Elementary School had become too crowded. To accommodate the larger class sizes, the school took two “temporary” buildings out of storage and put classrooms in each. Betty taught second grade in the small school, which the school district intended to use only one year. But for Betty, the small building served as her second-grade classroom for 10 years! The Meridian Press recently interviewed Betty and shared her story.

TWO-CAR GARAGETWO-CAR GARAGE C. C. C. If you read the title and said to yourself, wait a minute, it’s July: July is the time to celebrate independence and unification. As countries and as individuals, we are keenly attracted to the notion of independence. Research tells us that it’s our lifestyle—things we do and choices we make—that determines how we will age. According to research done at California State University, Fullerton by C. Jessie Jones and Roberta E. Rikli, a key element in maintaining independence later in life is sustaining one’s “fitness capacity (strength, endurance, agility, and balance).” Simple, right? So why declare interdependence? Because life happens. Appointments, other priorities, injuries, and many other reasons all serve to interfere with or distract our attention from exercise. Encouragement and accountability can be essential to sticking with a fitness program. In our office, several team members go to the local YMCA to exercise at noon. Sometimes, we join a group exercise class together, and other days we each do an individual program; regardless, we check in with each other. We carpool. We rearrange schedules. During this month when we celebrate unity and independence, ask someone to start a walking group with you. Join a class. Walk around the corner and visit a friend. Ask a Life Enrichment/ Wellness team member about steps you could take with others to improve your fitness capacity. Declare interdependence—and gain more independence! For more information about Touchmark’s Life Enrichment/Wellness program or the research regarding standards for maintaining physical independence in later years, email me at FullLife@ Touchmark.com. Declare interdependence! Brian Pryor Executive Vice President
  3. 3. CAPTURING DELIGHT{FULL} MOMENTS Look for more photos on Facebook. Taking advantage of the beautiful weather, residents enjoyed several outings. A group cruised up the Snake River, stopped to shop at Charming Charlie, visited the Basque Museum (and enjoyed lunch at the sidewalk café), and started the fishing season at Horsethief Reservoir, taking in the fresh mountain air, eating a picnic lunch, and catching fish off the pier.
