Betty is one of our hardworking aides. Thanks for all you do for the Shoreview Senior Living community, Betty!

Residents in our Garden Cove apartments have discovered a new favorite pastime: stencil painting! It’s a fun, relaxing activity with plenty of room for creativity. Plus, the outcomes are always beautiful! ?

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!
