Activities and Lifestyle
The offerings at Library Square match the diverse make-up of those who live here. People are as active as they want to be. Every month there is a full calendar of social and educational opportunities offered to residents.
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 Library Square 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 Library Square activities:
Stop at a daily Coffee Club and discuss the news of the day, join the Garden Club, or take part in a read-aloud book club for folks with low vision. Play Bunco, rummy, sheepshead or bingo. Attend a cooking demonstration (and eat or drink the results!) Try trivia, blackjack or join the dining or lifestyle advisory groups and share all your ideas. Check the calendar to see what shopping or sightseeing trips are coming up. And be sure to make the monthly birthday party. There’s something to do every single day.
Health & Wellness
Try the daily exercise class, or Sitting Fit Chair Yoga, a game of balloon volleyball or toss some horseshoes to improve balance. 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. Try Zumba Gold or Tai Chi and get your blood pressure checked at a scheduled wellness clinic. During the summer, visit the West Allis Farmer’s Market for fresh fruit and vegetables. 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.
