Halloween Crafts & Decorations

October 31st, 2019

We’ve been busy getting into the spirit of the holiday with Halloween crafts! Check out photos from all the fun.

Eagan Pointe tenants got creative for some fall spirit! We made the cutest fall pumpkin decorations out of the most unusual of supplies: unused toilet paper rolls wrapped in fabric! Everyone had a good laugh about the less-than-usual supplies they were using.

More pumpkin crafts! This time, Eagan Pointe tenants decorated REAL mini pumpkins by pouring paint onto them and letting it drip down in different patterns. No two pumpkins looked the same, and they were complete just in time for Halloween! 🎃

Even MORE Halloween crafts! Eagan Pointe tenants made witches hats for Halloween. One resident, Mike Rand, stated he did not make his big enough – guess it must be for someone else!

On September 28, Eagan Pointe Senior Living and the Southview Senior Communities team will be joining the Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota for the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field. There are 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today, and that number is projected to rise to nearly 14 million by 2050. We’d love your help as we work to raise awareness, reduce risk, and eliminate Alzheimer’s through research and care. Learn more about donating and/or registering to walk. Together, we can fight to end Alzheimer’s!

Our Residents are Keeping Busy – Check Out these Fun Activities!

October 29th, 2018

Our residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living have been keeping very busy this autumn season! From a beautiful fall leaves tour to a visit from the Precious Pets program, we are having lots of fun as we inch closer to the new year. Take a look at our most recent activities!

The tenants on the Garden Cove floors of Eagan Pointe were able to participate in a Precious Pets program. The animals were all rescued pets. The tenants were able pet them and hold them. The pets included a gecko and other reptiles, as well as a lion rabbit, hamster, guinea pig, hedgehog, and more. The tenants loved seeing the animals and being able to hold them in their laps!

 

The tenants of Eagan Pointe took a tour to see the fall leaves change colors. We drove all around the town of Eagan right at the peak of the color change. Everywhere we looked there was a different color to see!

 

The tenants of Eagan Pointe took a virtual trip to Sweden. We learned all about the customs of Swedish people and what to do when you are in Sweden. We topped it off with authentic Swedish meatballs from Ikea with some lingonberry sauce and pickled herring. And just like the Swedes, we drank some caffeinated coffee.

 

The tenants of Eagan Pointe have been busy with festive activities. Here they are preparing for Halloween by coloring in witches and pumpkins!

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!
