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!

Alzheimer’s Association Fundraisers & More

September 6th, 2019

We’re coming into the end of summer, but the fun continues here at Shoreview! This month, we’ve held Alzheimer’s Association fundraisers, learned about nature, and much more. Check it out!

To raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association, our residents and staff donated items for a “happy hour auction.” A fun afternoon fundraising for a great cause!

More fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Association! On August 21, everyone enjoyed a delicious meal, reminisced, and shared memories during our old-time, ’50s-themed BBQ fundraiser.

We love the monthly visits and lessons with our friends from Silverwood Nature Center! We get to learn so much about nature, and then apply it to the art we create that day.

A change of plans due to rainy weather can be a bummer. But when that change involves ice cream and music, life is good! 🎤🍦🎼

Trudi brings us sunshine each month with her love of music. For August, she brought us an afternoon at the state fair!

We are thankful for this couple, Tony and Irmi. They spend a LOT of time in the back garden, and we all reap the rewards!
