I have lived at Lewisville Estates for ten months. It was a major decision for me, coming from my own home of many years, to a smaller space and community setting. I have not once regretted the move. The staff is very accommodating; the residents are friendly and welcoming. When wanted or needed, activities are available. This is now Home!
Assisted Living Week Back
National Assisted Living Week was established in 1995 to celebrate the role assisted living communities play in senior care and the relationships that form between caregivers and residents due to their time spent together. This year National Assisted Living week is Sunday, September 10th through Saturday September 16, 2017. The theme for this year is Family is Forever and was inspired by this quote from Maya Angelou:
“Family isn’t always blood, it’s the people in your life who want you in theirs: the ones who accept you for who you are, the ones who would do anything to see you smile and love you no matter what.”
This week is the perfect time to celebrate the beautiful relationship that forms between staff and residents at Assisted Living communities. It truly takes a special person to be a caregiver. You have a huge impact on the people around you. You not only take care of residents, but you become their family, forming bonds that cannot be broken. Someone that they not only rely on, but enjoy spending time with.
The caregivers and staff at Assisted Living communities become residents’ second family. They are the eyes and ears that observe things about their residents and relay these observations to their family members. They are the ones who notice if there is a change in a resident’s appetite or health. Caregiving staff works as a team to provide the best care to residents, providing them with the love and respect a family member would. We are very thankful to all of the awesome caregivers that are dedicated to caring for our residents every single day.
National Assisted Living Week is also to celebrate our wonderful residents. It is an honor to not only care for you, but to know you and be part of your life. Caregivers, be sure to express your thanks and appreciation for all the assisted living residents you care for.
Spend National Assisted Living week enjoying time spent together; caregivers and residents alike.
When we arrived at Lewisville Estates ten months ago, we were quite apprehensive to begin a whole new way of life in our old age. However, we were warmly greeted by residents and staff alike. We were most pleasantly surprised with our new apartment and quickly settled into our new home. We have been very contented and happy here.
I like Lewisville Estates because all of the people are so friendly. The games are fun and there is always something to do. I enjoy going out to the garden and watching the fish and birds; some of us got to see a roadrunner. I had never seen one before so that was exciting. There is also a hummingbird and a green parakeet.
I am so blessed to be able to live in such a wonderful place as this for the past 21 months. The food is great, the staff is so helpful and friendly, and the other residents are great people. We have so many activities here so we never get bored or lonely. Another thing I enjoy here is the weekly housekeeping service; I don't have to clean the bathroom, vacuum, or change the bed linens anymore. I can enjoy all of the fun things and they take care of the work!
My mother has been a resident at Lewisville Estates for about four years and recently we had to move her because she needed more care. It was regrettable that we had to move because we had grown to consider Lewisville Estates home. That is about the greatest compliment I can give to the staff at Lewisville Estates and the management at Tarantino Properties. Home is a place where one can feel comfortable, at peace and surrounded by loving, caring people. We found that at Lewisville Estates and are very grateful to every person there.
