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. ??
