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.

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… ?

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.
