We’re decking the halls with boughs of holly – and other jolly decorations!

Colorful Pumpkin Art Project & Other Fall Fun

November 30th, 2020

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 “shining 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!

Enjoying the Outdoors and Family Visits

July 10th, 2020

We’ve been enjoying the outdoors with family, friends, and tasty treats at Shoreview Senior Living. We also had a birthday celebration outside. Check it out!

Nothing like enjoying tasty ice cream and good conversation on a hot summer day! ?☀️

So thankful for our shady outdoor patio. We love being outside, even on the warmest of days! 

We’re incredibly thankful for outdoor visits with friends and families, and you can’t beat the added bonus of a snuggly puppy. Some residents are getting creative, adding FaceTime calls for the ultimate outdoor family visit. Thank you for stopping by! 

Seeing one’s family is a perfect way to celebrate a birthday! And when it’s so close to the Fourth of July, you have to have decorations covered in sparkles. Please join us in wishing Mary Kay a very happy birthday, Mary Kay! ??

Our wonderful Residence Director, Luke, also celebrated a birthday recently. See what a good sport he is?! Please join us in wishing him a very happy birthday! ??

Many Shoreview Senior Living residents are using art to channel their creativity – some are even discovering a creative side they never knew they had! Here’s a lovely picture created by our friend, Jan, along with a couple memories it brought to her mind. Thank you for sharing your art and adventures with us, Jan!

Many Shoreview Senior Living residents are finding ways to bring joy to others. Yvonne enjoys making afghans for community members who like to snuggle up. Rosie LOVES her new blanket!

It was a beautiful day for refreshing ice cream sundaes and uplifting music in the hallways at Shoreview Senior Living! ??


Social distancing, roaming ‘Beverages & Music,’ and plenty of laughter make up another successful happy hour.


Shoreview Senior Living residents have been challenged to find the artist AND the author within themselves. This was their first project, to come up with words to accompany their artwork. Everyone did a fabulous job!
