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!
The Benefits of Social Media Back
As you may know, the World has been taken over by social media. People rarely make phone calls, write letters or drop in for a visit nowadays. Instead they stay connected through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and more. Social media is quick and easy way to share with family and friends all at once in one place. Whether sharing pictures of the kids, updating how your day has been or whatever the case may be, social media has proved to be beneficial for keeping the communication flowing. And the best part of social media; there is no age limit!
Through Facebook you can stay in touch with family, friends or even old pals that you may not have spoken to or seen in years! You can also stay updated on the news, weather, entertainment, sports, and send messages. The possibilities of Facebook are endless. It may not be as bad as you thought. Instead of waiting and waiting for mail to come in or a phone call or text message, you can log in to Facebook and be greeted with endless updates, photos, videos and more from your family and friends. You can browse for hours through photos and videos of the kids and grandkids, nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters. You don’t have to wait for the updates from your family anymore. Staying connected with your loved ones is easier than ever before.
From newspapers to magazines to TV stations and cable news, it seems everyone is adopting Twitter as the coolest thing since sliced bread. The coolest part is that it makes Twitter a great way to keep track of news, sharing your opinion, becoming involved in global conversations or keeping up with you favorite sports team, celebrity, family member, or friend. Twitter is perfect if you want to keep it simple.
YouTube is the perfect platform if you are more of a viewer than a reader. Through YouTube you can view endless amounts of videos including music videos, news outlets, movies, vlogs and so much more! There are billions of videos on YouTube, you have no short amount of options here.
Instagram, the home of photos, photos, and more photos. This is the perfect form of social media if you like pictures. You can scroll all day through the wide variety of images posted through the app. You have the option to follow friends, family, celebrities, sports teams and so much more. Keep updated with those that you love and vice versa. Instagram might be more fun that you originally thought.
Social media doesn’t have to be a bad thing. The benefits that come from social media are tremendous! And who knows, you may end up enjoying it more than you think? So give it try!
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.
