Indoor Fun and Warm Spring Wishes

April 30th, 2020

We’ve been staying safe and enjoying ourselves here at Shoreview Senior Living, and we wanted to share some indoor fun and warm spring wishes.

Here are some beautiful smiles to wish you all a very wonderful day! 🙂

Shoreview Senior Living resident, Joan, sends a happy “hello” to friends and family. She’s doing well, and hopes you all are, too! Cheers!

You can never get tired of the doing the “Hokey Pokey!”

There’s plenty of laughter during hall bingo. Our winners are also shouting out “bingo” with extra gusto these days! 

He’s so humble when it comes to his art, but look at the pictures we “borrowed” for our bulletin board!

Shoreview Senior Living staff delighted residents with “made-to-order breakfasts” delivered right to their apartments! There’s nothing like a hot breakfast of bacon, sausage, pancakes, toast, and eggs made your way!  🍳🥓🥞

Music and Art, Family Time, and Healthy Living

February 7th, 2020

We’ve been focusing on fun and happiness here at Shoreview Senior Living! Recent events covered music and art, family time, and healthy living.

It doesn’t get much more special than four generations dining together! Shoreview tenant Mary J. enjoyed a wonderful afternoon when her daughter, granddaughter, and grandchild came by to visit recently.

Happy hour with the music group, Bandanahh, was an AMAZING way to spend a Friday afternoon!

Shoreview Senior Living residents enjoyed a fun art project with a very delightful group of area Girl Scouts!

Because he loved the snowman he created at preschool so much, our friend Xavier came by to teach us how to make them for ourselves! ⛄️

Shoreview Senior Living hosted a “wellness clinic,” where residents learned about their own health and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Movement in May

May 21st, 2018

The past few weeks have been full of activities that inspired residents to get moving!

Yoga and Volleyball

We had a terrific Tuesday! Residents started out with volleyball in the morning. It’s becoming pretty competitive! After lunch, we all headed out for some trivia on the patio. We ended the wonderful day outside doing yoga with Nancy.

 

Mother’s Day Tea

Monday afternoon, we enjoyed sitting on the patio before the rain came. Afterwards, we ventured inside for our Mother’s Day Tea Party. David Geske played some beautiful piano music for all the ladies (and a few men too), while the residents enjoyed tea with little cucumber sandwiches and petite desserts. It was a beautiful afternoon to celebrate with the moms at Shoreview Senior Living!

 

Senior Prom

A room filled with beautiful decorations, a corsage for each resident, and nothing but smiles made for the start of a wonderful Prom. The beauty of each resident was captured as they enjoyed an afternoon of music with Dan and Judy from Bandanaa, dancing, and gourmet treats. A few teenagers from Mounds View High School joined us and helped create many lasting memories. They were such joyful and compassionate students as they danced and visited with the residents. This intergenerational experience is rewarding for the students and seniors. We were proud to crown Dawn and Lee Herndon as the 2018 King and Queen of Shoreview Senior Living. Thank you to everyone who helped make this day special!!!

 

Canvas Painting

Mrs. Jill visited residents to do some canvas painting. They each created beautiful spring paintings of flowers in a field. I love how the residents can relax and get lost in their painting.

 

Dancing to Amy and Adams

Residents enjoyed their weekly happy hour with Amy and Adams. They are a wonderful and talented music duo. The music got the residents singing, dancing, and tapping their toes. “Ralph” (my puppet) even came out to get Telly to smile a little bit. Then Leo caught a dance with mom. Amy and Adams are a fun couple. We look forward to seeing them again!

Leo February Visit

February 28th, 2018

Leo visited all day and spread his love to everyone. We started off the day singing hymns with Norma on piano and Judy leading us in song. They did a great job! In the afternoon, when yoga started, I think Leo was too tired to care when we did our cat and cows, but I did catch him doing his “ball pose.” It’s amazing how he lights up the day for the residents and staff.

Chair Yoga

February 8th, 2018

Nancy came in to help teach residents some chair yoga. It was well received by so many. It was nice to feel a little relaxation in our day, as well as learn how it can help us in our daily lives. Namaste, Nancy!

Two of our residents crossed something off their bucket list over the weekend! Erma Comstock (86)  and Jan Bromberg (82) went on a zip-line across the Mississippi with Bold North Zip Line. They may be old, but they sure are bold!
