Activities and Lifestyle
The activities offered at Oak Hill Terrace match the diverse make-up of those who live here. People at Oak Hill Terrace 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 Oak Hill 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 Oak Hill Terrace activities:
Play Kings in the Corner, Bunco, dart ball or dominos. Plan to stop at Monday Night at the Movies, the monthly birthday party or attend a cooking demonstration (and eat or drink the results!) You’ll find a monthly book exchange with the Waukesha librarian who brings the latest offerings. And you’ll want to check the calendar to see what shopping trips are coming up. Join the current events group on Saturday or become a fourth for bridge. You’ll find lots of opportunities to socialize every single day.
Health & Wellness
Start the day with exercise, six days a week. Or try Tai Chi, Drums Alive, or Chair Dancing. Prefer to exercise in the afternoon? Join the Fitness Club or build strength and endurance with Wi bowling or shuffleboard. Get your blood pressure checked at a scheduled wellness clinic or listen to a talk about how to protect your medications when you are going on a trip. 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 people who participate in a pen pal program, exchanging letters with local grade school students, or volunteer in a reading program at a nearby school.
Try a special class like beer making, floral arranging, acrylic painting or stained glass. Take a class in brain fitness. Many people living at Oak Hill Terrace have tried new creative hobbies they just never seemed to have time to try before. It’s easy to stay active.
Attend weekly Catholic mass and communion, or a weekly Protestant service, all held on-site at Oak Hill Terrace. Join others for rosary hour held weekly, led by our generous community volunteers, or music ministry, that includes hymns and readings. Consider attending an activity offered by one of our volunteer community churches. There are many opportunities to remain spiritually nourished. Oak Hill Terrace is open to all faiths.
