Spreading Holiday Spirit Around Eden Prairie Senior Living


Spreading Holiday Spirit Around Eden Prairie Senior Living

January 19th, 2021

Things may have been a little different this season, but there was still plenty of holiday spirit around Eden Prairie Senior Living!

We had Christmas trees decorated throughout the community along with many other fun, festive decorations. Here is one of our Christmas trees as well as photos of holiday luminaries that a resident’s family member was generous enough to set up for us. After obtaining permission from our Management team, this kind individual lined our driveway and parking lot with the beautiful glowing luminaries for us to enjoy on New Year’s Eve. Thank you so much for the incredibly kind and gorgeous surprise!

We were lucky enough to enjoy a live digital Christmas Eve concert here at Eden Prairie Senior Living! To give everyone the opportunity to safely tune in, we streamed the show in three areas of the community: Garden Cove, our Community Room, and our Theatre. We also held a “grab ‘n go” Christmas eve happy hour from our on-campus pub. Keeping with the holiday spirit, we served two kinds of eggnog, two kinds of hot apple cider, and a variety of tasty Christmas cookies.

Eden Prairie Senior Living held a special holiday party for members of our Garden Cove units. Attendees enjoyed eggnog, hot apple cider, and a variety of holiday cookies while listening to some of their favorite holiday music. Plenty of joy and cheer were shared by all!

Eden Prairie Senior Living welcomed in 2021 with a New Year’s Eve party in our Dining Room. We served specialty drinks, bars, and snacks, and we were treated to a live piano by our very own professional pianist!

Here’s another thank you gift Eden Prairie Senior Living’s staff received this holiday season. Thank you so much for the lovely card and DELICIOUS treats!

Visitor-Restrictions-in-Effect

For the health and safety of our clients and tenants, visitor restrictions are now in effect at all Southview Communities locations. We are actively screening all visitors at this time.

Due to heightened concerns regarding COVID-19, we request that any visitor – regardless of his or her current health – refrain from in-person visits until further notice. Signs posted at entryway doors notify visitors of this policy. Exceptions to this restriction include compassionate care circumstances, such as an end-of-life situation. In this instance, visitors will be limited to a specific room only.

The overall wellness of our residents is our top priority. We understand the incredible importance of connecting with family members, and we apologize that this visitor policy presents an unfortunate inconvenience. We are happy to assist you in maintaining contact with your loved one through phone calls, emails, video conferencing, social media, and other forms of non-contact communication.

Implementing visitor restrictions is a necessary step to maintain a safe environment in our community at this time. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
