October 17th, 2019

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!

Here’s a video clip from Rockin’ Tony’s performance:


The Centennial Stompers had us stomping our feet and clapping our hands with their uplifting Dixieland music! 🎸🎹🎺

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:


We celebrated Oktoberfest here at Shoreview Senior Living with delicious food and enjoying time with our friends and family! What a fun way to experience Bavarian culture and welcome autumn!

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!

This month’s lesson and craft with Silverwood Nature Center taught us about the importance of sunlight in nature.

Monday morning bingo with friends is a great way to start the week!

Entertainment, cake, and thankfulness were the ingredients for a fun-filled afternoon as we wished Linda all the best in her retirement. She will be missed!

Making gifts for our volunteers and the upcoming Volunteer Appreciation event was both fun and important to us. We wanted to show our thanks to these special people!

The turn out and music for our Volunteer Appreciation event certainly helped make it incredible. We can’t thank our volunteers enough for all they do for our residents and community here at Shoreview Senior Living!

Friday mornings get off to a great start with our weekly Bible study class. Recent topics have been “Heaven” and “Women of the Bible.” There is much to learn and discuss!

April 19th, 2019

We’ve been busy at Shoreview Senior Living. Check out some of the fun events at Shoreview from the last few weeks!

Interim HealthCare joined us for bingo. They not only called the numbers and provided prizes – they also led us in gentle exercises throughout the game. It was fun AND felt great!

These little canines sure can warm our hearts! We love spending time with Benny and Daisy. 🐶

The folks from Silverwood Nature Center gave us an informative session about birds and led us in making beautiful feathers out of clay. 🐦🐦🐦

We tapped our toes and sang along during our evening with the Pistachio Singers. There songs from the ’40s brought back many memories and their harmonies were beautiful! 🎤🎼

We love music, and time spent rockin’ with Tony is always a blast!

The theme for this month’s visit to the James J. Hill house was “Art Collections.”  We learned that James Hill was an avid collector of paintings.  We also viewed a special exhibit of Nicholas Brewer’s works that are currently on display at the J.J. Hill House.
