January Visits

January 31st, 2019

We had a busy month at Lilydale Senior Living! We enjoyed January visits from both the Cretin Derham Hall hockey team and 6th graders from Faithful Shepherd Catholic School. Check out photos from both visits.

The Cretin Derham Hall Hockey team joined the tenants at Lilydale Senior Living for ice cream sundaes and bingo. Lilydale Senior Living tenant, George Rumsey, graduated from Cretin Derham Hall High School in 1942. He was a goalie for the hockey team for two years and lettered in both hockey and baseball. It was a fun afternoon for all!

6th graders from Faithful Shepherd Catholic School in Eagan spent an afternoon at Lilydale Senior Living playing bingo and singing. It was a joyful day!

Walk to End Alzheimer’s

September 6th, 2018

On September 15, we join the Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field in Minneapolis. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association and Walk to End Alzheimer’s mission is to bring awareness, reduce the risk, and eliminate Alzheimer’s through research and care. You can help us by donating: http://bit.ly/2Bl2y7U or participating in the walk. Details here: http://bit.ly/2vOJVEg
