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!
Halloween Cookie Recipe Back
Trick or treat! Halloween is right around the corner and there are many fun holiday themed snacks to eat. Witches’ hats are a fun and easy treat you can make by yourself or with your grandkids. You can give them out to other residents to brighten their day or send them home with your grandkids to give out. Ingredients you will need:
· Fudge stripe cookies · Milk chocolate or dark chocolate candy kisses · Honey · Decorating gel
Place a fudge stripe cookie with the bottom side up onto a flat work surface. Smear a small amount of honey onto the bottom of the cookie or the chocolate candy. (About 1/8 of a teaspoon) Use the honey to secure the kiss candy to the center of the cookie, covering the hole. (You can substitute chocolate icing or peanut butter for honey as the glue for your kiss candy.) You can use the decorating gel, in the color of your choice, to add a small bow, buckle or ribbon to add the finishing touches to your witches’ hat. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and enjoy!

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.
