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!
Military Family Appreciation Month Back
"Our nation owes each day of security and freedom that we enjoy to the members of our Armed Forces and their families. Behind our brave service men and women, there are family members and loved ones who share in their sacrifice and provide unending support."
- President Obama
Every November since 1996, the President of the United States signs a proclamation that marks the beginning of a month long celebration of the Military Family. The month honors military families serving around the world through a variety of observances and recognizes those for their commitment and the many contributions that they make every day in support of the military and our nation.
Members of our Armed Forces have been defending our country with unwavering courage for more than two centuries. These brave patriots leave behind everything they know and love to step forward to answer America’s call. As these soldiers help secure our freedom and democracy, their families sacrifice along with them.
During Military Family Month, we recognize every spouse, parent, sibling, child and loved one who stand with our troops. The selflessness of these families tells a story of unfailing duty and devotion. With grace and resilience, these military families endure the absence of their loved ones and bear the burdens of war. When the battle finally ends and our soldiers return home, their families support their transition and recovery.
This November we as a Nation will come together to celebrate our country’s military families and honor their loyalty to not only our service members but our country. Military Family Appreciation month may take place in November, but the impact of the honor, courage, and commitment of these families is felt and should be honored every day of the year.
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.
