Eagan Pointe State Fair & First Day of School


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!

Eagan Pointe tenants enjoyed an evening of sunshine, bonfire, and s’mores. Many were brought back to their childhood with memories of making s’mores with their families. Everyone was enjoying the sugar rush and beautiful weather!

On of our caregivers, Alison Hellyer, received her “5 Years of Caring” name badge affixed in her favorite donut. It was presented to her at an early morning nursing meeting by Sarah Lewerer, RN. Congratulations, Alison!

Mother’s Day Mimosas and Muffins, Bird Show, and Memorial Day

May 24th, 2019
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.

Happy Hour and Caroling

January 8th, 2019

As the holiday season is winding down, we’d like to share our last few Christmas festivities at Eagan Pointe Senior Living. We had a great holiday happy hour on the Friday right before Christmas. We enjoyed festive drinks, jolly games, and holiday cheer with our friends at Eagan Pointe.

 

A group of tenants from Eagan Pointe also caroled for their fellow tenants. They were led by our activity coordinator, Nichole, on the guitar. They sang and jingled all the way through the holiday season. It was a great time for the carolers to perform for their friends, and it was a great time for the tenants of Eagan Pointe to see their fellow neighbors caroling.

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.

May is Colorful

May 21st, 2018

Over the past few weeks, residents saw exotic birds, made piñatas, and hosted a fashion show! May has been very colorful so far, especially with the flowers in bloom.

Exotic Birds

The residents of Eagan Pointe Senior Living loved viewing and learning about exotic birds that family member Brad Ruth brought in. The residents greatly enjoyed the live animals.

 

Cinco De Mayo Piñatas

Residents made piñatas for Cinco De Mayo. They used decoupage to make the shell of the piñata and then used crepe paper to decorate them. On Cinco De Mayo, the residents whacked the piñatas open to find some goodies.

 

Spring Fashion Show

Eagan Pointe Senior Living hosted their Spring Fashion Show, featuring models MaryAnne, Evelyn, Joy, Bev, and Julie. We had special appearances by guest models Nurse Sarah and Home Health Aid Evita. It was so fun seeing all the spring fashions!
