Fall Fun


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. ??

We’ve been having a fun and busy October here at Shoreview Senior Living! We’re only halfway through, but we’ve had musical guests, fun field trips, and an Oktoberfest celebration. Check it out!

Rockin’ Tony’s music brings out the smiles and memories. We love his visit each month!

Tony Garry’s smile and his popular music from the ’60s and ’70s really gets us singin’ along!


Our “Craft Fair” was a great way to spend a Saturday! Vendor registration fees were donated to the Alzheimer’s Association.


Apple, apple, who’s got the apple? Definitely the Pine Tree Apple Orchard! ??


Just when we think we’ve learned everything we can about James J. Hill and his family, we’re treated to more interesting facts in this beautiful, historic mansion on Summit Avenue!

Here’s a clip of the group singing together during our latest visit at the James J. Hill House:
