Activities and Lifestyle
The activities offered at Layton Terrace match the diverse make-up of those who live here. People at Layton Terrace are as active as they want to be. Every month there is a full calendar of social and educational opportunities offered, 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 Layton Terrace 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 Layton Terrace activities:
Start with morning coffee and discuss the news of the day. Join the Page Turners Book Club, play bingo, baseball dice, Thirty-One or Sheepshead. Watch a movie each Sunday evening and give Wii golf a try. Be part of the dining or lifestyle councils and offer your advice. And you’ll want to check the calendar to see what concerts, trips to local shops, sightseeing excursions or lunches are coming up. You’ll find lots of opportunities to socialize every single day.
Health & Wellness
Start each weekday with group exercise, or try Stretching to the Classics, Tai Chi or even line dancing. Build strength and endurance with Wi bowling while you play for a league trophy. Play bocce ball on the patio. Join a trip to the West Allis Farmer’s Market in season for fresh fruit and vegetables or get your blood pressure checked during a scheduled wellness clinic. And enjoy healthy and tasty dining daily, with choices at every meal, prepared onsite by highly trained chefs. We offer tangible ways to live healthier.
Creative and Educational
Join the Creative Crafters, attend a presentation or volunteer to help a local cause. Some residents knit caps for the Waukesha Memorial Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and donate them quarterly. Others decorate journals for a local hospice. Reach out and visit Faith Children’s Academy once a month to visit the 4 and 5 year olds. While there, residents read, color, sing and play games with the children. Layton Terrace residents have been sharing like this for at least 4 years. It’s easy to stay active and involved.
Attend weekly Lutheran or Catholic services and communion, Vespers, rosary hour or join a Bible study group. Attend services offered by other denominations that visit once a month, and share their time and talents thru song and praise. There are many opportunities to remain spiritually nourished. Layton Terrace welcomes people of all faiths.
