Fun February Activities at Eagan Pointe Senior Living

March 2nd, 2023

At the end of January, the Eagan Pointe Senior Living community celebrated its Winter Carnival. One of the highlights was crowning our new King & Queen of Eagan Pointe — introducing King Jerry & Queen Marti! 👑👑

Residents also played exciting games like tabletop curling. And, of course, there was the annual Puzzle Race Contest, which is always popular. Caren, our former Queen, won the curling competition. The winning team in the Puzzle Race Contest included Stu, Jewell, Mary Sue, and Mary.

As always, the residents had so much fun at the Eagan Pointe Winter Carnival. Learn more about our lively community at www.eaganpointeseniorliving.com.


Residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living got big surprise when members of the Saint Paul Vulcans paid a visit to our community.

For decades, the Saint Paul Vulcans organization has done charitable work on behalf of the city of St. Paul. If you’d like to learn more or become a member, visit www.vulcans.org.

We appreciate the Vulcans taking the time to stop by and serve breakfast to our residents!


Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents celebrated Valentine’s Day with a delicious candlelight lunch, with a choice of either lobster or steak.

The lovely atmosphere and extravagant meal made for the perfect Valentine’s Day setting. All of the residents had an amazing time and raved about the meal for days afterward.


Aloha!

At Eagan Pointe Senior Living, we don’t let the chilly winter temps get us down. No, sir! We stirred our imaginations and pretended to be in a tropical setting with our Beat the Winter Blues Happy Hour event.

From January 28 through February 4, Eagan Pointe Senior Living played host to its Winter Carnival, during which residents took part in an assortment of exciting, winter-themed activities and events. âť„

Nominees for the Coronation Ball court were Ken A., Louis D., Arthur S., Caren L., Deanna K., and Delores K. We crowned King Arthur and Queen Caren. ?

During the Snow Sculptor Challenge, residents rolled the dice to try and be the first to build their snowman using “real” snow. Miles was the winner for this challenge. ⛄

We also had a special visitor. Miss South Saint Paul Ambassador Madelyn Wenda dropped by to call Royal Bingo for AL and IL residents as well as all three Garden Coves.

All in all, the Winter Carnival was a hit!

Eagan Pointe Senior Living hosted a candlelight dinner on Valentine’s Day to show our valentines – our residents! – how much we care. Residents ordered lobster or filet mignon for a delicious dinner accompanied by live piano music. ??

Eagan Pointe Senior Living hosted its very own Olympic Games, allowing residents to compete in activities to earn a medal.

In Tabletop Curling, Linda Z., Marti T., and Shirley F. took home the gold! ?

Fun and Games at Eagan Pointe

March 16th, 2022

On December 17, we welcomed Elise Bombaro to Eagan Pointe Senior Living. She delivered a special holiday treat by playing classical and Christmas music for us on the piano. We were so grateful to have her share her talents with us.

Tom N. and other residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living participated in a friendly bean bag toss game. The game helped residents stay active and work on coordination skills while having fun together.

Some Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents got together for arts and crafts.

Helen L. and Ardie B., Mitzi V., and Irene R. were among those who made and decorated gingerbread cards. ??

Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents often play games for entertainment and socialization – and some games help keep cognitive skills fresh, too! ?

Recently some residents – including Phyllis, who is pictured here – played Nix the Six. The game requires six dice and a pen and paper for keeping score. When a player rolls a six, that die is removed. The player keeps rolling until no sixes are shown. The total on the remaining dice is that player’s score for that round.

Eagan Pointe Senior Living hosted a winter social, where residents were randomly assigned tables to get to know more people throughout the building.

They also got to try some fun and delicious winter treats like Gingerbread Oreos, Cherry Cordial Kisses, white chocolate & peppermint popcorn, and a made-to-order hot chocolate bar.

On Dasher. On Dancer. On Prancer and Vixen… ?

Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents enjoyed their own reindeer games when they participated in Reindeer Racing. We captured some of the fun:

  • Charlotte’s reindeer takes the lead.
  • Rolling the dice to advance.
  • Rosemary takes her turn.

Garden Cove residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living enjoy a weekly Brushstrokes activity, during which they can paint seasonal pictures using watercolor. This week they painted Christmas candle pictures. ??

Some of our residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living played an Xmas Tree Dice Game.

We snapped a few photos of Linda and Randi during one of the rounds. The object of the game is to roll the dice to cover the ornaments on your tree. The first player to cover all their ornaments is the winner. ??

We snapped a photo of Sister Brigid admiring the poinsettia she received as a gift. She wanted to share its beauty with everyone at Eagan Pointe Senior Living, so we placed it in one of the main spaces for all to see and enjoy.

The fun and games continued with a game of Scoop Toss at Eagan Pointe Senior Living. Residents took turns getting in on the action:

  • Jan and Thelma
  • Mae
  • Irene

Participants engaged in friendly competition while sharing time and laughs together.

Residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living had a New Year’s Eve celebration that included cocktail weenies, champagne cocktails, socializing, and smiles. Cheers to 2022! ??

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!
