Happy Holidays from Eagan Pointe

December 27th, 2018

Happy Holidays to all! This holiday season at Eagan Pointe Senior Living has been a busy one. From gingerbread cookies to a holiday jazz concert to Christmas caroling, you can say we’ve had a very festive month of December. The tenants decorated gingerbread cookies for our upcoming holiday party. They let their creativity flow to bring the gingerbread men and women to life!

 

Here are pictures of all the elves of Eagan Pointe putting up holiday decorations. After 4 years of putting the decorations up together, these elves have the process down pat! It took no time at all to turn Eagan Pointe into a holiday wonderland!

 

 

Preschoolers from St. John Neumann visited the tenants of Eagan Pointe. The students all came as reindeer and sang great carols.

 

Eagan Pointe had a special holiday concert put on by the Eagan High School Jazz Band. They played jazzy renditions of popular holiday music. They even took some time out of the concert to sing carols with the tenants!

 

The Garden Cove tenants of Eagan Pointe made and decorated salt dough ornaments. They mixed the dough, rolled it out, and cut holiday shapes. Once the salt dough dried out, they painted the ornaments.

 

Eagan Pointe hosted their annual holiday party for tenants, their families, and friends. It was a huge success! Attendees of the party enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres, listened to delightful holiday music, and, of course, had a visit from Santa.

Our Residents are Keeping Busy – Check Out these Fun Activities!

October 29th, 2018

Our residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living have been keeping very busy this autumn season! From a beautiful fall leaves tour to a visit from the Precious Pets program, we are having lots of fun as we inch closer to the new year. Take a look at our most recent activities!

The tenants on the Garden Cove floors of Eagan Pointe were able to participate in a Precious Pets program. The animals were all rescued pets. The tenants were able pet them and hold them. The pets included a gecko and other reptiles, as well as a lion rabbit, hamster, guinea pig, hedgehog, and more. The tenants loved seeing the animals and being able to hold them in their laps!

 

The tenants of Eagan Pointe took a tour to see the fall leaves change colors. We drove all around the town of Eagan right at the peak of the color change. Everywhere we looked there was a different color to see!

 

The tenants of Eagan Pointe took a virtual trip to Sweden. We learned all about the customs of Swedish people and what to do when you are in Sweden. We topped it off with authentic Swedish meatballs from Ikea with some lingonberry sauce and pickled herring. And just like the Swedes, we drank some caffeinated coffee.

 

The tenants of Eagan Pointe have been busy with festive activities. Here they are preparing for Halloween by coloring in witches and pumpkins!

Tree Painting, Padelford Tour, Oktoberfest, Oh My!

October 17th, 2018

The residents of Eagan Pointe Senior Living are making the best of this fall season! Take a look at some of the fun fall activities from the past couple weeks.

Some of our Garden Cove residents made fall trees come to life with Q-tip painting. Some had already lost their leaves and were raked into a pile at the bottom. The residents used their creativity to bring a little fall to their rooms.

 

This was an extraordinary day! The residents of Eagan Pointe Senior Living went on a Padelford tour down the Mississippi River. They were able to learn a little bit about the history, as well as see the beautiful nature surrounding the boat.

 

The residents of Eagan Pointe celebrated Oktoberfest! They enjoyed German snacks, German polka music, and of course, beer. What Oktoberfest celebration would be complete without a little sauerkraut? Prost!

Henry is coming back to do small group performances for the Garden Cove residents, too!
