Resident Spotlight: Ted North
“Some people might say I am too much of a nut,” Ted North says, laughing, “but I’m not a doom and gloom type of person.”
Ted has resided at Lamar Court for two years and said he initially wasn’t keen on moving here. “I am one of the youngest here, and I came here because I needed assistance. When I first moved here, I was falling down a lot. I could barely walk without a walker. Now, I exercise here at least 10 times a week and my balance issues are gone.”
Best Part of Lamar Court for Ted?
He said the friendly residents and courteous staff appealed to him the most. “I was impressed by the whole place immediately” he said. “I have a positive attitude, and it’s been reinforced every day. I go out of my way to get to know everyone.”
Gaining a lot of his strength back has been vital to Ted since he moved to Lamar Court. “The personal trainer and doctors will ask me what I want to work on and then they will help me with a plan. I can do everything from physical and strength exercise to balance workouts. It’s been very, very good for me. I take yoga and all the fitness classes here.
Ted’s Background and Family
Ted’s family includes five children and 10 grandchildren. He most recently lived in Olathe, Kansas, and he retired three years ago.
“Before I moved here, I was getting negative and discouraged. I started to worry about things that I should not be worried about,” said Ted. “But that has all changed. I walk through those doors and this is home.”
