Description of Wilkinson Woods
At every Laureate Group community, expect to find a choice of apartment styles and sizes, numerous common spaces and attractive grounds. But that’s just the beginning. Look beyond the real estate to find the true heart of our communities.
You may be surprised to see who lives at Wilkinson Woods in Oconomowoc. It could be someone who lived down the street from you, someone from church, or someone you knew when your children were in school. It happens all the time. Many people choose to stay in the town they love when they decide to make a move.
There are many opportunities to stay active. You’ll find craft projects, a walking club, an exercise class, books to read, and card and scrabble games to join. There is always something to do, and someone to do it with.
Wilkinson Woods is a community of people dedicated to helping you stay healthy, active and engaged so you can truly enjoy this time of life. 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 Wilkinson Woods match the diverse make-up of those who live here. People at Wilkinson Woods are as active as they want to be. Every month there is a full calendar of social and educational opportunities.
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. We monitor the number and types of programs at Wilkinson Woods 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 Wilkinson Woods activities:
Play cards or bingo, and join the group for a movie each Sunday night. Check the calendar for shopping and sightseeing trips, and outings like a concert in Oconomowoc Park. Try drumming, make popcorn, decorate cupcakes or enjoy a “pet therapy visit.” Cheer on the Brewers or the Packers with all the fans watching the lobby TV. You’ll find lots of opportunities to socialize every single day.
Health & Wellness
Try the exercise class, sit and dance or stretching. The Walking Club gets everyone moving and doubles as a social club. Build balance with the beanbag toss. Get your blood pressure checked or talk to the nurse about your medications. 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
Try quilting or craft classes or attend a cooking demonstration (and eat or drink the results!) Join the current events group or challenge yourself with mind games or crossword puzzle time. It’s easy to stay active and involved.
Continue to attend your own congregation or come to Lutheran Services, Liturgy of the Word or weekly Communion, each on different days of the week. Services are offered right at Wilkinson Woods. There are many opportunities to remain spiritually nourished. Wilkinson Woods is open to all faiths.
