Celebrating our longtime volunteer JoAnn’s birthday was the highlight of our bingo game this week! 🎂🎊

Singing some “oldies but goodies” always brings back many memories and creates lots of smiles. A good old-fashioned sing-along and happy hour made for a very fun afternoon!

Spreading Holiday Spirit

January 22nd, 2020

Singing, treats, and laughter – just a few of the ways we were spreading holiday spirit around the halls of Shoreview Senior Living!

The holidays are better with treats, and we had a wonderful time decorating cookies together. There was plenty of laughter and cookie sampling!

We had so much fun with Trudi and Frank at our December Sing-Along! Some of our own residents even joined in to lead “The 12 Days of Christmas,” which was especially entertaining!

Kent Appeldoorn had us all laughing and singing at a recent happy hour.

Shoreview Senior Living residents rang in the New Year with a festive countdown party, complete with ice cream sundaes, music, and plenty of cheering!🎉🎊

Christmas festivities and December fun

December 27th, 2019

We really got into the holiday spirit here at Shoreview Senior Living! The last few weeks has been full of Christmas festivities and December fun. Check it out!

You can never have too many buttons when decorating festive holiday stockings!

Our Christmas tea party was a wonderful afternoon thanks to music by Tara Brueske, our gallant servers (who even sang to us!), delicious treats, and a reading of “A Cup of Christmas Tea.”

Christmas at the James J. Hill house was always exciting and festive, and they make sure it still is today! We were able to hear all about the history of Christmas at the beautiful St. Paul mansion on our recent visit.

Rockin’ Tony put on a GREAT holiday show for us here at Shoreview Senior Living. With tambourines and maracas in-hand, we got to play as his backup band!

We visited the Lake Elmo Inn on a beautiful, sunny day and enjoyed a delicious meal with great company!

New Toy

February 22nd, 2018

We finally received a new toy… a karaoke machine! It was so much fun to play around with, especially during manicures. Lee had all the ladies listening and applauding him! We can’t wait to get more CDs. February may be coming to an end, but Trudi helped us continue to celebrate with “The Day of Love.” She is an inspiration to all the residents, and they just love seeing her and Frank each month.

We also celebrated Ash Wednesday in the morning and Valentine’s Day later in the afternoon. The wonderful treats, tea, and music with Jill made this party so much fun. The room was filled with the LOVE of friends and feelings of beauty within everyone!

Batik Art

February 14th, 2018

Residents learned the ancient Indonesian art of Batiking. They colored shapes and patterns on color-resistant paper. Then the unimaginable happened; they had to crumple them up! Many just looked at me thinking, “Why on earth would I do that?”

Once they finally did it, they painted, blotted, and ironed the paper. We finished it with some lamination. They turned out great! Someday, we will do fabric Batik. It is always fun to learn ways of a different culture.
