A Special Anniversary, Arts & Crafts, and More at Eagan Pointe

July 28th, 2022

On June 15, Eagan Pointe Senior Living celebrated its 7th anniversary! Typically, gifts for a copper anniversary are copper (?) and wool, to symbolize warmth. We felt all the love and warmth from residents during this special celebration that included fancy decorations, a delicious barbecue dinner, and a mega ice cream sundae dessert — served in a copper pot. ?

Here’s to the next seven years — and many, many more!

Some of our Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents recently kicked off their Sunday shoes and had a blast attending a performance at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.

Everybody cut “Footloose” for this amazing song and dance show that had us all dancing in our chairs and singing along to these oh-so-famous songs.

Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents recently had a little happy hour fun.

Louis played his harmonica along to the music and invited Barb and Mary Lou to dance. This trio surely put the “happy” in happy hour during this event!

Garden Cove residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living prepared for summer flowers with some arts and crafts. We grabbed our brushes, tapped into our creativity, and added color and flair by painting flower pots.

Take a look at some of our residents — Jan M., Julia A., and Tom N. — flexing their artistic muscles.

Our Assisted Living and Independent Living residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living prepared for the Fourth of July holiday weekend with some arts, crafts, and patriotic spirit. We created and decorated wreaths using clothes pins and red, white, and blue stars. ?⬜?⭐

Red, white, blue, and YUM!

On July 1, we kicked off the Independence Day weekend with a Patriotic Happy Hour event at Eagan Pointe Senior Living.

March 16th, 2022

From January 28 through February 4, Eagan Pointe Senior Living played host to its Winter Carnival, during which residents took part in an assortment of exciting, winter-themed activities and events. ❄

Nominees for the Coronation Ball court were Ken A., Louis D., Arthur S., Caren L., Deanna K., and Delores K. We crowned King Arthur and Queen Caren. ?

In the Puzzle Race, teams competed to see who would be the first to finish the puzzle. The winning team of Deanna, Jean, Caren, and Ruby finished in just under 15 minutes! ?

During the Snow Sculptor Challenge, residents rolled the dice to try and be the first to build their snowman using “real” snow. Miles was the winner for this challenge. ⛄

We also had a special visitor. Miss South Saint Paul Ambassador Madelyn Wenda dropped by to call Royal Bingo for AL and IL residents as well as all three Garden Coves.

All in all, the Winter Carnival was a hit!

Eagan Pointe Senior Living hosted a candlelight dinner on Valentine’s Day to show our valentines – our residents! – how much we care. Residents ordered lobster or filet mignon for a delicious dinner accompanied by live piano music. ??

Fun and Games at Eagan Pointe

March 16th, 2022

On December 17, we welcomed Elise Bombaro to Eagan Pointe Senior Living. She delivered a special holiday treat by playing classical and Christmas music for us on the piano. We were so grateful to have her share her talents with us.

Tom N. and other residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living participated in a friendly bean bag toss game. The game helped residents stay active and work on coordination skills while having fun together.

Some Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents got together for arts and crafts.

Helen L. and Ardie B., Mitzi V., and Irene R. were among those who made and decorated gingerbread cards. ??

Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents often play games for entertainment and socialization – and some games help keep cognitive skills fresh, too! ?

Recently some residents – including Phyllis, who is pictured here – played Nix the Six. The game requires six dice and a pen and paper for keeping score. When a player rolls a six, that die is removed. The player keeps rolling until no sixes are shown. The total on the remaining dice is that player’s score for that round.

Eagan Pointe Senior Living hosted a winter social, where residents were randomly assigned tables to get to know more people throughout the building.

They also got to try some fun and delicious winter treats like Gingerbread Oreos, Cherry Cordial Kisses, white chocolate & peppermint popcorn, and a made-to-order hot chocolate bar.

On Dasher. On Dancer. On Prancer and Vixen… ?

Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents enjoyed their own reindeer games when they participated in Reindeer Racing. We captured some of the fun:

  • Charlotte’s reindeer takes the lead.
  • Rolling the dice to advance.
  • Rosemary takes her turn.

Garden Cove residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living enjoy a weekly Brushstrokes activity, during which they can paint seasonal pictures using watercolor. This week they painted Christmas candle pictures. ??

Some of our residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living played an Xmas Tree Dice Game.

We snapped a few photos of Linda and Randi during one of the rounds. The object of the game is to roll the dice to cover the ornaments on your tree. The first player to cover all their ornaments is the winner. ??

We snapped a photo of Sister Brigid admiring the poinsettia she received as a gift. She wanted to share its beauty with everyone at Eagan Pointe Senior Living, so we placed it in one of the main spaces for all to see and enjoy.

The fun and games continued with a game of Scoop Toss at Eagan Pointe Senior Living. Residents took turns getting in on the action:

  • Jan and Thelma
  • Mae
  • Irene

Participants engaged in friendly competition while sharing time and laughs together.

Residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living had a New Year’s Eve celebration that included cocktail weenies, champagne cocktails, socializing, and smiles. Cheers to 2022! ??
