Paying Tribute and Making Art

December 16th, 2021

We are so proud of our Veterans here at Shoreview Senior Living. To show our gratitude and respect, we hosted a program in their honor that included music and a heartfelt message from our director.

It was a true privilege to recognize these Veterans in November, and we are so lucky to have them in our community.

Residents at Shoreview Senior Living wanted our service men and women to know that we’re thinking about them this holiday season. Sending cards and notes is a great way to do that, so that’s exactly what we did.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to write a personalized note to a servicemember.

Art is a wonderful way to socialize, keep our creative juices flowing, relax, and create nice projects for ourselves, friends, and families. Some of our Southview residents recently got together to create with watercolor and catch up with one another.

Fall Fun at Shoreview Senior Living

November 20th, 2021

Residents at Shoreview Senior Living recently enjoyed a live music performance. Our evening with the Pistachio Singers was full of wonderful show tunes, hymns, choral music, and laughter. It’s always a joy to host this talented group!

The Centennial Stompers play their music with gusto, and they treated us to a performance at Shoreview Senior Living. The fun they have is obvious, and we can’t help but tap our feet and clap along. We enjoy them so much!

Shoreview Senior Living wants to thank Jane, Bernice, and Hazel for posing for this gem. You gals are just so cute!

In celebration of Oktoberfest, our staff hosted a tasty German meal for all Shoreview Senior Living residents. Spätzle and German potato salad were among the many items to enjoy. We had so much fun getting to know one another and learning about each other’s heritage. 🍻🥨

Our Shoreview Senior Living Halloween Social was a great time to get together, socialize, enjoy ice cream sundaes, and see the great costumes worn by our residents and staff. 🎃

We recently had a special guest say hello from outside the windows of Shoreview Senior Living. Teresa enjoyed a cup of coffee and a visit from “Bunny,” who was very busy cleaning up the garden for winter. 🐇

Staff members from the nature center at Silverwood Park paid a visit and taught us about cartography, which is the study and practice of making and using maps. We used what we learned by painting a favorite lake, complete with different colors to show water depth!

Silverwood Nature Center, Pontoon Ride, & Other Fun Events

August 20th, 2021

Shoreview Senior Living residents recently visited Silverwood Nature Center to learn about our Minnesota Lakes. The Nature Center is part of Silverwood Park, which integrates nature and art with its open green spaces with gorgeous lake views, art gallery, outdoor amphitheater, and collection of hiking trails. It’s a great place to learn and explore, and we did exactly that.

Our residents also took home a very special art project. Everyone got their very own screen print of our handcrafted lake scene.

There are few better ways to spend a morning than with a relaxing pontoon boat ride. Our captain chauffeured Shoreview Senior Living residents around White Bear Lake and shared with us an abundance of history about the lake and its surrounding homes and towns.

The weather was perfect, and the company was even better!

Residents of Shoreview Senior Living were recently inspired by Deacon Jim’s messages during morning Mass. We all enjoyed his uplifting words as well as readings and prayers. He also tells some pretty good jokes, which keeps us all on our toes.

Jim and Dan are among our extremely talented musicians at Shoreview Senior Living. Recently, residents were treated to a performance by this gifted duo. Jim and Dan served as the musical act for one of our Thursday entertainment events, and residents packed the room to hear them play. Everyone had a fabulous time, tapping toes and bobbing heads while singing along to the music.

Thank you to Jim and Dan for such an amazing show!
