Description of Hart Park Square
At every Laureate Group community, expect to find a choice of apartment styles and sizes in both independent and assisted living, 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.
At Hart Park Square in Wauwatosa, you’ll find opportunities to keep your body fit, your spirit nourished and your mind sharp. You’ll find neighbors who want to stay involved. People enjoy the symphony, visit area museums and regularly attend plays. They compete in Wii bowling, play sudoku, and volunteer at a neighborhood school. They have card clubs, a writing group, an art guild, and speakers who discuss topics of the day. There is always something to do, and someone to do it with.
Hart Park Square is a community of people dedicated to helping you stay healthy, active and engaged so you can truly enjoy this time of life. And 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 offerings at Hart Park 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 Hart Park 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 Hart Park Square activities:
Stop at daily Coffee Klatch and discuss the news of the day, join the knitting club or the men’s club or one of many groups playing cards. You’ll want to check the calendar to see what concerts, theatre, sightseeing, lunches or special events are coming up. Enjoy the Friendship Tea Circle hosted monthly by one of our volunteers or learn computer skills from one of the visiting students from Marquette High School. We believe in looking at the possibilities rather than the barriers, so you’ll find lots of interesting opportunities to socialize.
Health & Wellness
Start each weekday with an exercise class or stop in to use a treadmill. Build strength and endurance with Wi bowling while you play for a league trophy. Try NIA, a body-mind-spirit exercise that uses 52 basic moves, borrowed from dance and the martial arts. Attend a program on managing a chronic disease or get your blood pressure checked during a scheduled wellness clinic.

Or volunteer to help a local cause. There are many opportunities to explore. It’s easy to stay active and informed.
Continue to attend your own congregation or come to weekly Lutheran Services, Catholic Mass and Communion. Priests and ministers from the area offer services right at Hart Park Square. Join others for rosary hour or a Bible study group, both of which meet weekly. Participate in hymn singing on Wednesday.
