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!
How to Stay Active During The Winter Months Back
Many seniors recognize the importance of exercise and incorporating daily fitness routines into their lives. However, the winter time can play a challenge as the weather makes it unpleasant to go outside and be active.
The cold weather may prove to be a hindrance but it is important that you find other options for exercise during the winter. Even though the air outside is frightful, exercise indoors may be delightful.
Physical activity for seniors is fundamental in maintaining a healthy life. Exercise not only builds muscle but also improves the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Exercising on a regular basis increases your stability which may prevent falls that often lead to broken bones. Exercise will even help you heal faster and prevent some chronic diseases, like diabetes or osteoporosis.
So, what types of winter exercise can you take part during the winter months? Maybe join a gym, take fitness classes or swim indoors are just a few examples of how to stay active during those harsh winters.
If you stay active, hydrated, eat and sleep well, and you’ll feel healthy no matter what the season.
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.
