Save The Date: 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s

September 20th, 2019

On September 28, Eagan Pointe Senior Living and the Southview Senior Communities team will be joining the Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota for the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field. There are 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today, and that number is projected to rise to nearly 14 million by 2050. We’d love your help as we work to raise awareness, reduce risk, and eliminate Alzheimer’s through research and care. Learn more about donating and/or registering to walk. Together, we can fight to end Alzheimer’s!

Here are some photos from last year’s walk.

Eagan Pointe State Fair & First Day of School

September 6th, 2019

The end of August leads into the end of summer, which means two things around here: the “Great Minnesota Get-Together” and back to school for the kids. To celebrate, we had our Eagan Pointe State Fair event and had our own first day of school photoshoot. Check it out!

We recently hosted our annual “Eagan Pointe State Fair.” The tenants that came were able to play a carnival game, go inside the art building to admire artwork done by other tenants, and, of course, get a taste of all the fried fair foods!

Eagan Pointe tenants were excited for their grandkids and great-grandkids to start the new school year. In celebration, we took our own first day of school photos featuring a little advice for future students!

Alzheimer’s Association Fundraiser BBQ, Volunteering, & More!

August 23rd, 2019

We hosted our 5th annual Alzheimer’s Association Fundraiser BBQ on Tuesday, August 13. Each staff department pulled together a basket to raffle off, and our 2019 Queen Donna Gerber graciously chose the raffle winners for us.

Local businesses also donated items to be used as part of a silent auction. Many tenants, family members, and friends joined us for a night full of fun, delicious BBQ food, and fundraising for a great cause! In total, we raised $4,131 for the Alzheimer’s Association.”


Home Health Aid, Tamika, and Eagan Pointe Tenant, Jim K., were enjoying the beautiful summer sun on the community room balcony.


An agency that works with the homeless in Minneapolis reached out to Eagan Pointe for volunteers to roll socks. The tenants of Eagan Pointe took on the challenge and rolled over 1300 pairs of socks in less than 40 minutes!


Eagan Pointe was visited by 60 swing dancers ranging in age from 6th grade to college students. They took advantage of Eagan Pointe’s high ceilings to show off their tricks and dance moves. The tenants loved watching the almost lost art of swing dancing while reminiscing about the good old days when they used to “move like that.”

Summer Food, Fashion, and Fun at Eagan Pointe

June 21st, 2019

This June, we kicked off the season with a little summer food, fashion, and fun at Eagan Pointe!

Eagan Pointe tenants enjoyed some nice summer weather while sipping cocktails on the patio.

The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed a delightful meal together at Doolittles Woodfire Grill in Eagan. It’s usually an all-female outing, but this time we were lucky enough to have Burt with us. He came with his “cape” on, so we all called him “The King”! Everyone had an amazing time and came back with our bellies full.

Eagan Pointe hosted their semi-annual TaylorMarie’s fashion show. The models of the show are pictured here, left to right: Resident Director Renee, MaryAnn, Mary, Lois, Activity Director Taylor, and Evelyn. The models had so much fun showing off the new spring and summer styles while audience members got to enjoy their peers’ modeling abilities.

The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed reading books with the children from KinderMusik during their weekly visit.

Mother’s Day celebration, parrot visitors, and Memorial Day wishes from Eagan Pointe!

Eagan Pointe hosted an event called Mother’s Day Mimosas and Muffins to honor all mothers, aunts, grandmothers, daughters, dog moms, and more! Eagan Pointe staff and volunteers served them for the hour and socialized with all the moms around. We hope that everyone felt as special and appreciated as they deserve!

Eagan Pointe hosted “Parrot Help,” a group who rescues parrots across the Twin Cities area and cares for them until they’re adopted by their forever family. This is the fourth year they’ve come to show us their exotic birds. They even let Activity Director Taylor and Coordinator Nichole hold some of their birds!

This Memorial Day weekend, we at Eagan Pointe Senior Living remember and honor the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for country.
