I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My father is here and seems quite content. He is 98 and he isn't very active so he doesn't participate in the activities offered but I see that there is a lot to chose from. Everyone has always been very friendly and caring. I visit him weekly so I do see a lot of what goes on. He is able to get his hair cut, see a podiatrist, get his hearing checked, visit a doctor, see a nurse, among other services, without leaving the building. We have been very pleased we chose this place for him.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My father was at LS and I have to say it was the worst experiance of my Dad's life. There was this Connie lady who was always so rude to him when he would go downstairs. After awhile it made him feel so uncomfortable that he stared refusing to go join the activities. He would go down and eat and then come do right back to his apartment when he was done. I even tried to talk to Connie about this but she kept denying anything and told me it was my old man's fault. That was the end of that. After that I placed my Dad in a different place...which he loves by the way. It was the best move I ever made.

Provider Response

Having served so many wonderful residents and families, it is difficult to respond to a review like this without knowing this individual’s specific circumstances. What is described here is not what Library Square is about. On the contrary, our philosophy is to offer older adults many opportunities to become involved because we know that social engagement is an integral part of quality of life. We encourage people to participate in as many of the activities that align with their lifestyle and interests. That being said, we also respect people’s power of choice — they have the right to choose their level of involvement. We have so many of our residents and families actively promote our community as being so friendly and warm that it is very concerning that this reviewer felt otherwise. We encourage her to give us a call so that we can discuss those concerns and make any necessary adjustments in our approach. For those who are considering a community for their loved one, we encourage them to stop by, talk with staff as well as other residents, and see first-hand what life is like at Library Square - - a warm, welcoming community with so much to offer older adults and their families.

Tour Library Square

The best way to get to know a community is by scheduling a tour. See the facilities, meet the staff and residents, and get a feel first hand what it's like to live at Library Square.

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. Here are a just a few examples of Library Square activities:

Social

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.

Creative and Educational

Try a new craft project on Saturday afternoon or attend one of the presentations during the week. Learn about Taking Care of Your Eyes or the Trains in Library Square’s backyard. The topics vary monthly. Join mental Aerobics or play Scrabble to test your brain fitness. Many people living at Library Square have tried new hobbies or learned about things they just never seemed to have time to try before. It’s easy to stay active and involved.

Spiritual

Continue to attend your own congregation or come to weekly Eucharist Service or Catholic Mass right at Library Square. We appreciate the community volunteers that bring services to our residents Join a group for Bible study or for a weekly rosary. There are many opportunities to remain spiritually nourished. Library Square is open to all faiths.
