Friday afternoon ice cream socials are always a hit for members in Shoreview’s Garden Cove North and West communities. There’s no better way to welcome a summer weekend than getting together for tasty sundaes, catchy tunes, good conversation, and plenty of laughs! πŸ¨πŸ¦πŸ™‚

For Father’s Day, the men of Shoreview Senior Living enjoyed time conversing together over pizza, beer, and soda! They relaxed with good food and drinks, learned more about each other, and even laughed at a some classic dad jokes. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜†πŸ»πŸ•

Yeehaw! We had so much fun getting back in the saddle of enjoying our summer cookouts with our Western Barbecue. Special thank you to Chef Josh for delicious homestyle cookin’! 🀠 πŸ–πŸŒ­

Shirley painted her pots, planted her seeds, and has been providing all the right TLC – now she has a beautiful zinnia garden for her windowsill. Great job, Shirley! πŸͺ΄

Residents of Shoreview Senior Living were tapping their toes, clapping their hands, and having a great time listening to the Centennial Stompers! Miss Maisy is always so funny and it’s such a treat whenever she stops by. We also love visiting with our sweet Labrador friend, Winthrop! 🐢🎢

Nothing says β€œFUN” like dancing to the music of Tony Garry! Thanks for a wonderful performance and incredibly fun dance party, Tony! πŸŽΆπŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸŽΆ

Celebrating Shoreview Centenarians

May 6th, 2021

Congratulations to Shoreview centenarians, Harriet and Don! We won’t say who’s older but Harriet has an April birthday and Don’s is in May. When we asked Don his secret to his long, wonderful life, he attributes it to the many years he’s spent with his wife. Happy 100th to you both. This is an incredible milestone but not as incredible as you. πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚β€

Decorating patriotic cookies was a perfect way to get our creative and culinary juices flowing. And they were tasty treats, too!

A group of Shoreview Senior Living community members completed a colorful pumpkin art project to help bring the fall spirit to our building. The final products turned out beautifully!

Friday happy hours are a favorite for many Shoreview Senior Living residents! Even socially distanced, we love the opportunity to catch up with our neighbors (and their furry friends) and enjoy each others’ company. Cheers!

Veterans Day is a day to honor our brave and humble veterans who have done so much for our country! We celebrated and showed our appreciation with treats, posters, conversation, and singing patriotic songs. Thank you, Veterans! ??

Receiving flowers from loved ones is always special, especially on a snow birthday! Happy Birthday, sweet Dolores! ??

We always appreciate the fun art projects our resident and talented artist, Judy, shares with us! Last week she helped fellow Shoreview Senior Living community members make beautiful leaf-rubbing collages to remember fall as we prepare to welcome winter! ??

Halloween Celebrations & Other Fun Activities

November 6th, 2020

Shoreview Senior Living’s Activities Department surprised residents with treats on Halloween, and many of them greeted us in costume! The “crazy cat lady,” “wildcat,” and “strawberry” enjoyed visiting with residents and even one of their furry friends. We hope you all had a very happy Halloween!

To decorate for Halloween last month, Shoreview Senior Living residents spent time coloring and making decorations inspired by their favorite types of candy!

Reading together and sharing stories about our lives isn’t only meaningful – it’s one of our favorite activities! Shoreview residents Colleen and Jim have spent MANY years together and are still learning new things about each other.

Even if it looks a little different due to COVID-19, playing bingo together is always fun here at Shoreview Senior Living!

Celebrating Assisted Living Week & Fall Fun

October 2nd, 2020

Earlier this month, we celebrated Assisted Living Week by recognizing the many β€œshining stars” we have working at Shoreview Senior Living! Each associate received goodie bags and special recognition throughout the week. To cap it all off, some of our kitchen staff helped run a random name drawing for our associates to win gift cards and a few other fun prizes. We are so lucky to have such amazing, caring people on our team. Thank you, Shoreview Senior Living staff, for all that you do for everyone in our community!

Having a tasty, freshly cooked breakfast delivered right to your front door makes getting up in the morning a LOT easier. We love our made-to-order breakfasts here at Shoreview Senior Living!

Our friend, Yvonne, has been at it again with her handcrafted shawls and lap quilts, and just in time for the chilly autumn weather. Thanks again, Yvonne!

There’s nothing quite like the sound of music when it comes to spreading joy. We always have such a wonderful time when we can get together and sing, even if we have to meet in the hall and stay socially distanced!

With the season change, we decided it was time to decorate our halls with some fall art! We had lots of fun talking about the funny and clever antics of squirrels during a recent painting project. ??

100th Birthday Celebration and Art Gifts

July 31st, 2020

We had a special day at Shoreview Senior Living when we had our friend Pat’s 100th birthday celebration. Our staff cheered and used noisemakers as family and friends drove through our parking lot waving and honking their horns. Shoreview residents joined in the fun and celebration, many from their balconies or windows. Please join us in wishing a Pat a very happy birthday! ??

Sam has been busy making art to decorate our building and to give to others. He uses our art kits to inspire his creativity, including a “dotty art” project. Thank you, Sam!

We love it when we receive art from our young friends. Two siblings from Roseville sent us pictures, which they drew and painted themselves, to be distributed to all the amazing residents here at Shoreview Senior Living. We can’t thank them enough for the beautiful and thoughtful gifts!
