Lovely Thank You Note & Summer Fun

Lovely Thank You Note & Summer Fun

September 30th, 2021

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.
Sincerely yours,

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! ???

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!

Summer Food, Fashion, and Fun at Eagan Pointe

June 21st, 2019

This June, we kicked off the season with a little summer food, fashion, and fun at Eagan Pointe!

Eagan Pointe tenants enjoyed some nice summer weather while sipping cocktails on the patio.

The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed a delightful meal together at Doolittles Woodfire Grill in Eagan. It’s usually an all-female outing, but this time we were lucky enough to have Burt with us. He came with his “cape” on, so we all called him “The King”! Everyone had an amazing time and came back with our bellies full.

Eagan Pointe hosted their semi-annual TaylorMarie’s fashion show. The models of the show are pictured here, left to right: Resident Director Renee, MaryAnn, Mary, Lois, Activity Director Taylor, and Evelyn. The models had so much fun showing off the new spring and summer styles while audience members got to enjoy their peers’ modeling abilities.

The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed reading books with the children from KinderMusik during their weekly visit.

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!

Holiday Lights Tour

December 28th, 2017

The residents on the Garden Cove floors at Eagan Pointe Senior Living went on a tour of the city to see some holiday lights. We started out by indulging in some decorated holiday cookies. Then the bus took us to a street that had a beautiful display of lights. We ended at a house that had their lights moving along to some holiday music. The residents had a blast seeing the displays.

Fire Station

May 26th, 2017

Eagan Pointe received some new neighbors. Right down the hill from Eagan Pointe a new fire station was built. The Fire Station became operational May 1st and there is a grand opening on June 8th. The Eagan Fire Chief, Mike Scott, invited Eagan Pointe tenants down early to be some of the first few people to see the new building. Eagan Pointe presented the Fire Fighters that were there on the tour with us a statue of the Fire Fighting Emblem, a picture frame with a picture of their new building, and a large card signed by tenants, staff and family of those at Eagan Pointe. The Fire Fighters with the Fire Chief, Mike Scott, then took the tenants around the station, showing them their equipment that they use and their trucks and other rescue equipment. They even let the tenants test out their lazy boys in their day room, shown in the picture with Mary Ronzani. The community of Eagan Pointe is looking forward to many other interactions and get-togethers with the fire fighters of the new Fire Station #1 in Eagan.

US Bank Stadium Tour

September 27th, 2016

Tenants of Eagan Pointe had a great opportunity to see all around the new US Bank Stadium Tour. The Tenants went on a 90 minute walking tour and saw everything from club level seats, suites, the press box, the locker room and even got to stand on the field. There was art work and pictures of Vikings Alumni all around the stadium that the tenants could see and reminisce about.

It was an incredible experience and the tenants enjoyed it so much!
