Description of Library 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.
Library Square in West Allis is located next door to the Public Library and is just minutes from the Farmer’s Market and other convenience services. At Library Square, you’ll find many opportunities to stay active and involved. You’ll find neighbors who play in the handbell choir, volunteer for local causes or enjoy gardening in the raised flower beds. There’s card clubs, Bible study, Wii bowling, and other socially engaging activities. There is always something to do, and someone to do it with.
Library 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 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.
