Touchmark at Harwood Groves - July 2014 Newsletter

  1. 1. TOUCHMARK AT HARWOOD GROVES THE{FULL}LIFE July 2014 Kids of all ages welcome summer Games, prizes, and even a clown! There is no better way to wrap up school and get ready for summer than with a carnival. Residents and staff organized games and passed out prizes to grandchildren, team members’ children, and children from HeadStart. Everyone had a ball!
  2. 2. 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 Brian Pryor Executive Vice President Declare interdependence! CAPTURING DELIGHT{FULL} MOMENTS Putting together a fun (and slightly messy) handmade note, Arline Hudson works with Life Enrichment/Wellness Director Anne-Marie Fitz to press her print on notecards that she sent to her children. Looking over the print, Arline shared, “You can learn an awful lot about yourself when you look at your own prints.” Local comedienne Auntie Kreamsaugen (from Park Rapid’s Jaspers Theater) entertained during the monthly birthday bash. She used joyful as her theme, which fit perfectly with the laughter, singing, and dancing. Residents toured the Fargo Air Museum, checking out the plans for future expansion. Mayor Dennis Walaker and challenger Brad Wimmer stopped by to visit and discuss the upcoming elections. (cont.)
  3. 3. CLUB NEWS H FITNESS PERSONAL TRAINER AWARD LIFE STORY PERSONAL CARE PERSON-CENTERED CARE AQUATIC July is Berry Month! Did you know that blueberries can help with your workout? The high water content can help keep the body hydrated during exercise. Blueberries have one of the highest amounts of antioxidants of any fruit and are a complex carbohydrate that provides you with energy. A handful of blueberries is a great snack to have an hour before your workout. Blueberries are also considered to improve memory as well as prolong the aging process of the brain. The most nutritious way to have blueberries is fresh or frozen. Try this healthy blueberry smoothie recipe (just throw them in a blender and blend until smooth): 1/2 cup skim milk 1/2 cup Greek yogurt or nonfat plain yogurt 1 cup frozen blueberries 1 tsp honey New programs to try Circuit Training. Short on time? Try a circuit training class! Circuit training combines strength and cardiovascular exercises while moving from station to station. Classes are Mondays and Wednesdays 5:30 to 6 pm. Silver Sneakers® Circuit Training combines fun with fitness to increase cardiovascular and muscular endurance with a standing-circuit workout. Upper-body strength work (using hand-held weights, elastic tubing with handles, and a Silver Sneakers ball) is alternated with low-impact aerobic choreography. Wednesdays 10 to 10:45 am.

The club will be closed Friday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day. Have a fun, safe holiday with family and friends!Touchmark’s amazing maintenance men to the rescue! This time, they helped save baby ducklings. Diving into our work (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!
