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!
Health Goals for 2018 Back
Happy New Year! Are you a fan of making yearly goals or resolutions for the year ahead? Setting easy health goals for the year are a fun way to help you achieve them. The theme behind these goals is taking the time to take better care of yourself. They will help you a live happier and healthier life. Here are a few simple goals are great ideas if you are looking to take better care of yourself in 2018 or any year after. Take the time to exercise regularly. The recommended amount of exercise for seniors is two and a half hours per week or thirty minutes per day. Exercising regularly helps you to maintain a healthy weight and good overall health. Regular exercise is also very important for preventing disease and chronic conditions like diabetes, cancer, heart disease and more. Regularly exercising and staying fit will also improve your balance and help you to strengthen yourself. This will help you to avoid falling and injuring yourself. While it may be hard to do every day, exercising regularly has numerous health benefits. Make better choices when eating and develop a good sleep routine. These come up in many articles, but they are very important when it comes to taking care of yourself. Exercising regularly will go a long way to helping you become healthier, but it needs to be paired with a healthy diet for you to really see a difference. Eating and maintaining a well-balanced diet is important when improving your health. Eating a balanced diet helps to keep your organs performing well and helps to fight sickness as well as fatigue. Getting a good night’s sleep, roughly 7-9 hours, will help to give you energy during the day because sleep plays a vital role in your overall health. You’ll be able to function well during the day and be ready to tackle exercising and any other plans you have. Taking an occasional nap also has many health benefits that include reducing fatigue, increasing focus, and reducing the need to reach for a caffeinated beverage.

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.
