Description of The Arboretum
At every Laureate Group community, expect to find a choice of apartment styles and sizes, numerous common spaces, attractive grounds, and services to meet your needs. But that’s just the beginning. Look beyond the real estate to find the true heart of our communities.
The first thing visitors to The Arboretum notice is its natural setting in Menomonee Falls. Located on 16 wooded acres with a private pond, it allows people to enjoy nature throughout the changing seasons, yet it’s only minutes away from shopping and other conveniences. At The Arboretum, you’ll find many opportunities to stay active and involved. Join neighbors who play in the handbell choir, sing in the chorus, or practice Tai Chi. There’s a competitive Wii bowling league, a men’s club, a monthly travelogue and a full calendar of cards and crafts. There is always something to do, and someone to do it with.
You’ll also find that everyone who works here has one thing in common: an appreciation and respect for older adults. You’ll see it in the friendly smiles, the genuine interest in stories from the past and the way our staff relates to everyone who lives here.
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 ensure a 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. 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. The list goes on....
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 Wii 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 handbell 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 like Unfolding the Map. 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.
