Life Enrichment and Wellness

THE {FULL} LIFE

Full Life Wellness & Life Enrichment Program™

Partnering with Touchmark residents to identify their needs, passions, and unique abilities—then working together to bring these elements to life—is the core of Touchmark’s Full Life program.

 

THE VISION

People at every age and stage of ability wish to remain productive, contributing members of their community. We all look for ways to stay mentally and physically independent and active. We seek resources to meet our spiritual needs. We challenge ourselves to keep growing and expanding our knowledge. We cherish family and social connections and enjoy celebrating each new day. Touchmark’s dynamic Full Life program identifies and then focuses on the strengths, skills, needs, interests, and goals of each person living in a Touchmark community. Our program mission is to encourage and fully support residents in living happier, healthier lifestyles. Partnering with Touchmark, residents become personally involved and engaged and take ownership of their own goals and well-being.
