StuartCo proudly congratulates Cindy Jacobson, Activity Director at The Alton Memory Care in St. Paul. Cindy was awarded a prestigious Caregiver of the Year Award by Minnesota Aging Services.
MN Aging Services is the largest association of organizations serving Minnesota Seniors. Their mission is to create the future of older adult services through excellence and innovation. Each year, dozens of member organizations and individuals are the recipients of Stars Among Us awards, presented during the Institute and Annual Meeting.
As Activity Director, Cindy develops and executes a full schedule of creative recreational, educational, physical and social activities aimed to focus on her residents’ strengths, not their disabilities to enhance their quality of life. Cindy’s residents enjoy everything from concerts, outings, theme parties, and at present, an undefeated volley ball team.
The Alton is StuartCo’s 65-suite memory care community; part of the Shepard Park Senior Campus in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul, MN. For more information, visit www.TheAlton.com, or follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/shepardpark.

Many of our StuartCo communities have reoccurring events that welcome residents to socialize and get to know their neighbors while doing something fun and active!
This featured resident event comes to you from The View At Long Lake. Just last month The View introduced Book Club into their line-up of resident events. They had their first club meeting led by Assistant Manager Susie and selected their first book. The group of residents will be meeting once a month to discuss the latest read, enjoy some refreshments, meet their neighbors, and select a new book for the next meeting.
The View actively invests in growing their community by hosting events such as book club, happy hours, cooking classes and fitness classes. They have enjoyed watching attendance grow within these activities as residents form new friendships with their neighbors.
The View made its debut in July of 2012 and has been incredibly well received in the Northwest metro with an ideal location on Long Lake in New Brighton. If you’ve been thinking about joining The View’s community, you can reach them via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 651-789-8889. The team at The View is looking forward to welcoming you home!

On Saturday, December 14th our StuartCo employees were treated to the annual Holiday Party and Year-End Celebration. This year marked our largest group ever, with 364 employees and guests in attendance. We recognized winners in 18 performance categories, and we also presented gifts to employees who have reached the milestones of five years of service and beyond. We’re proud to have 92 employees that have been with us for five or more years; that’s nearly 30% of our organization! We recognized twenty-five new 5-year recipients, two new 10-year recipients , two new 15-year recipients, and two 25-year recipients (a NEW milestone award this year)!
Please help us congratulate this year’s outstanding winners and the many employees who have reached significant milestones in their careers with StuartCo. We also thank our generous vendor companies that donated prize items and gift cards that helped make this event a very special celebration for all!
