State Fair Food Happy Hour & More Summer Fun

State Fair Food Happy Hour & More Summer Fun

September 8th, 2020

With fall just around the corner, we’ve been celebrating the season change with a State Fair food happy hour and other fun summer events at Eagan Pointe. 

Tenants at Eagan Pointe Senior Living recently enjoyed a Happy Hour event as well as samples of Minnesota State Fair foods.

The munchies menu included mini donuts, corn dogs, cheese curds, and deep-fried Snickers on a stick.

These tasty treats made it feel as though we were at the Great Minnesota Get-Together!

Some of the Eagan Pointe Garden Cove tenants recently marked the end of summer with a fun craft. They traced their handprints and used them to create ice cream cone art with help from our Activity Coordinator, Samantha.

Take a look and see how their projects turned out! 🍦

We recently had some noteworthy events at Eagan Pointe.

One of our tenants, Millie, experienced a private outdoor concert with friends. The weather was perfect, and so was the music! 🎶

We also celebrated Taylor’s last day with well-wishes and cake.

Celebrating Five Years of Eagan Pointe

June 15th, 2020

To celebrate five years of Eagan Pointe, we honored associates who have been with us since day one, featuring a different team member each day on social media. Read on to learn more about these dedicated staff members!



Patience joined us as a home health aide (HHA) to help open the building in 2015. Living nearby, she watched the building’s construction while eagerly waiting for her chance to apply and said her “prayers were answered” when she was hired. Before Eagan Pointe officially opened, she was here helping clean and prepare the brand new building for the tenants who would be moving in.

For Patience, the best part of her job is helping and caring for those in need and building bonds with the residents. Patience says she has too many great memories at Eagan Pointe to pick a favorite, but she loves visiting with the residents, singing along with them, and hearing stories from their youth.

In her free time, Patience likes to cook a LOT and go on long walks with her family. Please join us in congratulating Patience on 5 years with Eagan Pointe Senior Living!



Max was hired in 2015 as Eagan Pointe’s first housekeeper. He started before the community officially opened and remembers working alongside Eagan Pointe’s Residence Director, Renee, Assistant Residence Director, Mickey, and the construction crew to make sure everything was clean, safe, and ready to welcome our first residents. Fun fact: Max didn’t realize he was working with Eagan Pointe’s owners until later on, and the memory is one of his favorites from the last 5 years!

While Max enjoys keeping the common areas and apartments clean for our residents, his favorite part of the job is interacting with them and hearing their stories, as well as the appreciation he receives from the management team.

In his free time, Max loves to work in his garden, spend time with his grandchildren, and fix things around his house. Please join us in congratulating Max on 5 years with Eagan Pointe Senior Living!


Activity Director

Taylor was hired in 2015 after a friend, who had joined Southview Senior Communities staff about a year prior to Eagan Pointe’s opening, recommended she apply. Taylor remembers how busy Eagan Pointe’s official opening was, with residents waiting in the lobby before they could begin moving into their apartments. However, she also remembers the team pulling together for a successful first day and is happy to say that teamwork has stayed strong ever since!

Taylor says the best part of her job is spreading joy to the residents. She loves learning about their favorite activities and figuring out how to bring them to Eagan Pointe. Taylor also enjoys seeing and helping new residents move in and make this community their home.

Though she has made countless amazing memories in her time here, Taylor’s favorite is working with residents to build a cookbook of their recipes. The final product was a collection of personal recipes submitted by the residents, all gathered in one book that featured resident artwork on the cover. For Taylor, working on a project that incorporates a little piece of each resident was a very special and rewarding experience.

Taylor loves just about anything outdoors in her free time, but especially likes hiking, biking, kayaking, and fishing. She also enjoys spending time with her fiancé, Taylor, and dog, Bohdi. Please join us in congratulating Patience on 5 years with Eagan Pointe Senior Living!


Director of Maintenance

Prior to opening in 2015, our upper management team recruited Jake from his current job at the time. He decided he liked the variety of daily work the Eagan Pointe position offered and accepted the role. He remembers how busy the staff was with welcoming new residents when the building opened, and it became clear right away that he was part of an amazing team and community. He’s happy to say there’s never been a dull moment since and he’s more than happy he decided to come aboard!

For Jake, the best part of his job is helping the residents. He’s realized there are so many simple things we take for granted in our everyday lives, and helping residents gives him much more appreciation for the little things in life. Jake also enjoys listening to the stories, wisdom, and valuable life lessons they have to share, and he’s happy he can pass it all on to his own children as they continue to grow.

Jake’s favorite memory so far at Eagan Pointe was the flag raising ceremony when the community’s flag pole was first erected. He’ll never forget how many veterans and veterans’ wives were in attendance, nor the pride that was shown on each of their faces.

Jake is an avid outdoorsman who especially enjoys hunting and fishing. He also loves spending time with his wife, Liz, their daughters, Ella (8) and Maci (6), and their dog, Mack. Together, he and his family like to make trips to their cabin and spend time outdoors and on the lake fishing, boating, and swimming. Please join us in congratulating Jake on 5 years with Eagan Pointe Senior Living!


Assistant Residence Director

Mickey has been working with seniors since she was 16 years old, when she was a nursing assistant in a care center. With a strong desire to continue helping and making a difference for seniors, she found a passion in helping people find the perfect fit when they’re ready to move into a senior community. 

Mickey remembers Eagan Pointe’s grand opening as a very busy yet exciting time as she got to meet the tenants, their families, and all of her coworkers, and she’s thankful that the fun and excitement hasn’t stopped! For Mickey, the best part of her job has been meeting and educating seniors (both within Eagan Pointe and the surrounding areas) about living in a senior community and helping them find the perfect fit for them and their lifestyle. She’s also very thankful for the relationships she’s formed with members of the Eagan Pointe staff, management, and community.

When she’s not working, Mickey loves spending time with family and friends and walking her dog, Gracie. She also enjoys snowmobiling, skiing, hiking, fishing, and camping. Please join us in congratulating Mickey on 5 years with Eagan Pointe Senior Living!

Eagan Pointe recently celebrated its 2020 Winter Carnival with several fun events! One morning, tenants were served their breakfasts by a lovely group of Saint Paul Vulcans.

And lastly – for the main event, of course – we crowned our 2020 king and queen. Former queen, Donna, and a few past kings passed their crowns to our new king and queen, George Failes and Ruby Lee.

Getting Into the Holiday Spirit at Eagan Pointe

December 27th, 2019

From decorating our campus to touring the city to take in all the Christmas lights, we’ve certainly been getting into the holiday spirit at Eagan Pointe!

Santa’s elves who live at Eagan Pointe came out to decorate and bring holiday cheer! Our building looks so festive thanks to the help of the wonderful tenants! 🎄

We hosted our annual holiday party here at Eagan Pointe on December 4. We were even lucky enough to have a couple special guests: Santa and his elf. The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed food, music, and a very joyous and spirited time!🎅🎄🥳

The tenants that live in Eagan Pointe’s Garden Cove units spent a night enjoying Christmas lights all over town. Some houses, like the one pictured here, even had decorations on every inch of their lawns. Tenants had to get all bundled up to face the cold, but it was worth it to see all the Christmas lights!
