Our new Town Center was unveiled in June 2013 and is quickly becoming the hub of community life for our residents. Floor to ceiling windows look out on our beautiful courtyard, making the Town Center the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of nature from the comfort of an armchair. Our new café serves coffee and snacks and is a great place to spend time with family or visitors. You can also spend some time in our gift shop and gallery, with the work of local artists on display.
Our courtyard has always been a favorite spot for our residents and their families, and has been recently enhanced with additional opportunities to enjoy community life and new experiences. Our fire pit is perfect for the timeless fun of a summer bonfire – you might even hear some familiar campfire songs! Our new fully-accessible community garden plots are state of the art, allowing residents with mobility impairments to easily enjoy growing flowers and vegetables. Special events are also held throughout the summer months, including concerts, picnics, and our annual State Fair Week.
Relax and unwind in our spacious spa, which includes an easy access, therapeutic whirlpool tub.
If you’re hosting an overnight visitor, we have affordable guest rooms available right on campus with all the comforts of home.
Fireplace Lounge and Community Kitchen
Our newly renovated Fireplace Lounge includes a number of comfortable seating areas, a large-screen TV and a working fireplace. It’s the perfect place to join neighbors for an art class or movie night, or just relax with a glass of wine in front of the fire. If you’re wondering where that smell of fresh-baked cookies is coming from, look no further than our community kitchen. You’ll often find residents making a favorite desert together or enjoying a cooking demonstration. The Fireplace Lounge and community kitchen can also be reserved for family parties or gatherings – we love a good birthday party!
Other Community Spaces
You’ll find several inviting lounges throughout our building which are perfect for relaxing with a book or visiting with family. Make sure you take a minute to look at some of the stunning black and white photographs displayed on the walls – many of them feature Milwaukee Catholic Home residents from our 100 years of history. We also have a private dining room that can be reserved for an intimate family meal or group gathering.
