Morning Exercise Program

August 31st, 2017

The tenants in our West Memory Care enjoyed a fun morning exercise program. Instead of a boring routine, the residents used noodles, hand swatters and balloons to make it actually FUN to exercise. In fact, the residents were having so much fun they didn’t want to stop for lunch!

Stillwater Boat Ride

August 30th, 2017

On Tuesday afternoon the tenants from Oak Park Senior Living embarked on an adventure aboard the Stillwater Boat and Packet Paddleboat Cruise. We were blessed with perfect weather as we enjoyed a yummy buffet and beautiful scenery along the St. Croix River. As an added bonus to our day, the bus driver got lost and we ended up crossing over the new Stillwater Bridge, which for many on the trip was the first time over it since it opened early this month.
