The team at Eagan Pointe Senior Living recently received a lovely thank you that touched the hearts of all of us. It’s nice to know our work is valued and appreciated. Thank YOU, Norma, for your kind words. Your note made us all very happy – and proud to do what we do:
To all Eagan Pointe Staff, Nurses, & Health Aides—
I’m writing this letter to thank you and let you know that I appreciate everything you do for us. I know you all have difficult jobs trying to please everyone.
All your hard work is apparent in that we have no had any COVID cases for along time, and still not back in “lockdown.” I am enjoying the outings again.
I missed the Food Meeting, but I wanted to let you know I am so pleased with the addition of whole grain bread & raisin bread (that) has been added to breakfast. Of course, the scones are just wonderful. The fruit and breakfast variety is great.
While the Summer Olympics in Tokyo may have ended, we continued our own Olympic Games at Eagan Pointe Senior Living and encouraged residents to Go for the Gold. And they did just that!
In our Olympic Trivia Competition (photo 1, from left): Lois K. just passed; Norma H. took home silver; Linda won gold; and Mari Sue and Kitty Y. were both awarded bronze.
Participating in the Equestrian Races (photo 2, from left around the table): Mari Sue, Linda Z., Mary Jo, Norma H., Carol S., Cindy, Charlotte, and Evelyn.
And showing off their medals (photo 3, from left): Carol scored with bronze; Mary Jo went for the gold and won; and Evelyn N. rounded out the tops with silver.
Thank you to everyone who participated, and congratulations to our Eagan Pointe Olympic Games winners! ???
Eagan Pointe residents met up with residents from other Southview communities to attend Circus Juventas. Everyone was excited for our first big group outing since COVID, and the circus was a great place to celebrate.
The residents had a fantastic time and loved the show. Everyone was impressed at the talent displayed by these high schoolers – and amazed that they were doing all the stunts! ?
We recently brought a taste of the Great Minnesota Get-Together right to our Eagan Pointe community. We celebrated the MN State Fair with some devilishly delicious fried foods and a very special State Fair Punch.
We also had a contest in which residents could vote on a picture done by the Wine & Coloring group. Congratulations to our winner, Bonnie J!
At Eagan Pointe Senior Living, we like to get creative and give our residents something fun to work on or create for arts and crafts. For our Fall Craft Project, we made pumpkins from wine corks. Activities like this help improve motor functions, dexterity, and artistry – and they allow residents to get together and have fun in a social setting.
These cork pumpkin crafts helped get us all into the fall spirit! ???
