Activities and Lifestyle
The activities offered at The Arboretum match the diverse make-up of those who live here. Folks at The Arboretum are as active as they want to be. Every month there is a full calendar of social and educational opportunities offered to residents, including specialized calendars for our programs serving the physically frail and those with dementia.
In our communities, seniors do not merely reside. They thrive. That’s because ensuring their good health and helping them stay active and engaged isn’t merely part of a mission statement that hangs on a wall, it’s part of our daily routine. And our full-time Lifestyle Director monitors the number and types of programs at The Arboretum monthly to make sure that the expected balance of social, wellness, creative, educational and spiritual activities are scheduled. Here are a just a few examples of The Arboretum activities:
Stop at a Coffee Klatch and discuss the news of the day, join the knitting club or the baking group, play trivia or bridge. Plant flowers with the Garden Club, stop in for resident run Rummikub, cards and puzzles. Plan to join a group to watch Sunday afternoon sports. Check the calendar for the monthly birthday party and what concerts, sightseeing or lunches are coming up. And don’t forget the Cocktail of the Month party. There’s something to do every single day.
Health & Wellness
Start the day with a morning stretch, stop in at the Arbor Fit gym and use the circuit training equipment or try chair yoga or Tai Chi. The Walking Club gets everyone moving and doubles as a social club. Build strength and endurance with Wi bowling while you play for a league trophy. Get your blood pressure checked at a scheduled wellness clinic, or attend a low vision meeting. And enjoy healthy and tasty dining daily, with choices at every meal, prepared onsite by highly trained chefs. In independent or assisted living, we offer tangible ways to live healthier.
Creative and Educational
Play in the hand bell choir, sing in the chorus, line dance, try humor hour, or try a new craft. Consider a writing workshop or take a brain fitness class. Attend one of the presentations given by community speakers or a demonstration like Dancing Through the Decades by dancers from Fred Astaire. Many people living at The Arboretum have tried new creative hobbies they just never seemed to have time to try before. It’s easy to stay active and involved.
Attend Lutheran or Catholic services and communion, or join others for rosary hour, held twice a week. Go on a scheduled outing to Holy Hill. Join a prayer service or hymns of praise offered at The Arboretum by generous community volunteers. There are many opportunities to remain spiritually nourished. The Arboretum is open to all faiths.
