Farewell Celebration, Earth Day Treat, & Kentucky Derby


Farewell Celebration, Earth Day Treat, & Kentucky Derby

May 18th, 2021

Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents and staff showed up to a small but significant farewell celebration for one of our dedicated team members.

Jake’s last day was April 30. Everyone wished him luck on his new adventure, and we celebrated with cake and plenty of smiles.

Congratulations, Jake. We will miss you, but we wish you all the best!

For Earth Day, residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living had a great time playing in the “mud” while creating a tasty and sugary treat.

In our Garden Coves, we made dirt cups using pudding, crushed Oreo cookies, and gummy worm candies. Residents enjoyed mixing the ingredients, with layers of deliciousness for the worms to “crawl” through.

Playing in the mud has never been so entertaining or edible. ?

The renowned Kentucky Derby takes place annually on the first Saturday of May. This year, we decided to “horse around” and get in on the fun with a Kentucky Derby Day at Eagan Pointe Senior Living.


We served mint juleps, the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby, and asked residents to dress for the occasion by wearing a fancy or fun hat.

As you can see, our attire and accessories made for an exciting afternoon.

St. Patrick’s Day Spirit & Retirement Celebration for Char

April 9th, 2021

The St. Patrick’s Day spirit was certainly present at Eagan Pointe last month thanks to some crafty residents and thoughtful gifts from a family member.

Residents of our Garden Cove units created lovely leprechauns for fun, festive decorations. The daughter of our friend and community member, George F., also donated medical-grade surgical masks with St. Patrick’s Day prints for our staff to wear on the holiday. Thank you for the amazing and very kind gifts! Who needs lucky clovers when you’re surrounded by such incredible, caring people? ?☘

We had a bittersweet day at Eagan Pointe when we celebrated the retirement of friend and associate, Char. She was a member of our housekeeping team for nearly 4.5 years and we are so lucky to have had her as part of our community. We can’t thank her enough for all the hard work, compassion, and dedication she’s provided us over the years!

Char will be moving to Arizona in August and will be greatly missed by our associates and residents. Please join us in congratulating and wish Char a very happy retirement!

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.

Farewell Priscilla and Roger

November 29th, 2018

We are bidding farewell to a couple that we have enjoyed having as residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living. Priscilla and Roger were adored by our staff and tenants. In their departure, they left us with these kind words:

“Dear Eagan Pointe Friends,

We would like to apologize for our sudden departure from Eagan Pointe. Circumstances did not permit us to say farewell the way we would have liked to.

We enjoyed our stay at Eagan Pointe and appreciate the many services availed us, along with the friends we made among the residents and staff. We have moved to a residence to be nearer to our daughters.

Eagan Pointe is an outstanding organization where, because of you, we built many fond memories. Best wishes to each of you in the future.

Priscilla and Roger”

 

We will miss you both around here, but we will cherish the fond memories that were created!
