Ready to reconnect with others and have some fun? When the cold weather eases and you want to venture out of the house but still stay toasty warm, you’ll find Wauwatosa offers a variety of indoor activities for seniors. You can catch a movie “under the stars” and enjoy dinner and wine at the same time at the Avalon Atmospheric Theater. If you love the feel of live music, several Wauwatosa coffee houses, restaurants and pubs schedule weekly performances by local artists.
The Wauwatosa recreational department offers a variety of classes and unique indoor winter activities perfectly suited for seniors. If you enjoy expanding your skills, you can learn to paint or play the guitar, try photography or Indian cooking and more with the department’s specialty classes. At the indoor pools, you can lap swim and take water exercise classes.
All year long, the Wauwatosa Senior Center offers older adults a way to connect with others, learn new things and participate in a wide variety of senior activities and programs. Check out their newsletter to find options such as yoga, tai chi, Sheepshead, cribbage, writer’s workshop, book club, foreign language classes and more.

An individual registration fee may be required for special programs.
Activities for Seniors at Luther Manor
Perhaps the easiest way to stay connected to friends and be active in winter is living at Luther Manor, our senior living community in Wauwatosa. Here, you’ll find opportunities to pursue your favorite hobbies and interests along with friendly people to share them with when you’re ready.
At Luther Manor, you can build in the woodshop, visit the train room to enjoy the model railroad, get creative in the craft center and meet friends for a sweet treat in the ice cream parlor. Plus, our Life Enrichment Program offers a variety of reoccurring activities and new opportunities planned and organized by Luther Manor’s dedicated staff and resident volunteers. You can pick and choose among fitness classes, cooking demonstrations, guest speakers, book clubs, interfaith worship services and so much more.
Best of all, with our buildings connected, you can reach your favorite activities — from choir practice to indoor bocce ball to aquatics classes in the heated pool — and meet up with neighbors and friends for lunch or a card game without having to brave the cold outside.
What’s more, living at Luther Manor keeps you close to the area you know and love with access to big city conveniences without all the big city hassles.
