Some of the ladies at Shoreview Senior Living recently spent an afternoon together “In Stitches.” 🤣🧶
Our group worked on projects, shared ideas, and had a little “Show and Tell” session to show off some personal creations. This crafty activity inspired us to do more and share more often, so we’re looking forward to our next get-together!
We MUSTACHE you a question. Do you like Western barbecue? “Well, do you, punk?” 🤠🍗
At Shoreview Senior Living, we sure do! We recently hosted a cookout event featuring a festive and delicious meal. Everyone dressed for the occasion, with hats and bandanas and mustaches. We enjoyed good food and great company. Yee-haw!
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.
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!
