Do you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure? Have members of your family suffered from these ailments? Do you have a poor diet? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, you may want to consider being screened through the services of Life Line Screening. Life Line Screening uses ultrasound technology to view the plaque buildup in your carotid arteries, the main arteries that carry blood to the brain. Blockages in these arteries are a leading cause of stroke.
We are pleased to host this Life Line Screening event on May 7 at Auburn Homes and Services. Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount). All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.
In order to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129, please call 1-888-653-6441 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com/communitycircle or text the word circle to 797979.
Garden Café Update
A lot has happened in the Garden Café since the last report. The cabinets, Café manager workspace and new shelving area for sale items have all been installed.
The tiling (which was held up in customs) has finally been completed. We can now move forward with finishing up the electric. Plumbers will be coming in to hook up the sinks. The refrigerator should soon arrive. The stove is here and will be put in place.
Pendant lights have been hung over the counter. In a few weeks our new furniture, which is being custom built in Arkansas, should arrive. The furniture in the atrium will be replaced at that time as well.
Once we have everything in and cleaned the State Inspector will be coming to give his final okay to use the space. Since there will be a learning curve with the new equipment, we can probably look at a reopening date around May 1st or so.
Happy 105th Birthday!
Althea Nodland celebrated her 105th birthday with friends and family at Auburn Courts in Chaska.
To honor the special occasion, Chaska Mayor Mark Windschitl presented Nodland with a City of Chaska Proclamation. She attributes keeping busy to her longevity, “I was busy all the time. I never sit down or feel bored, I always have something to do.” She said. Nodland kept busy with driving tractors, dancing, learning to swim, writing and playing the piano.
Nodland was born the same year the 16th Amendment was ratified and the IRS started collecting income tax and the first year prizes were included in every box of Cracker Jack.
Auburn Homes & Services celebrates 90 years!
Auburn Homes & Services began operations in Victoria, Minnesota, in 1928. In 1982, the need for affordable senior housing was identified and Talheim, a HUD financed and subsidized building for seniors was built in Chaska. In 1988, a 61-bed nursing facility was built adjacent to Talheim, replacing the facility in Victoria, and named Auburn Manor. In 1997 Auburn Courts, a 55 unit assisted living community, was built and opened. In 1998, Moravian Care Ministries expanded its services to include Waconia and the surrounding communities by purchasing Nightingale Nursing Home, a 37-bed nursing home located in downtown Waconia, and renamed it Auburn West. In 2007 ground was broke for Auburn Home to provide skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services in Waconia. Auburn Meadows Assisted Living and Memory care opened its door to the community in December of 2012. Auburn Homes & Services has been serving seniors in the Spirit of Christ’s Love for 90 years.
