Resident Activities

Our residents' days are filled with choices for interesting and lively interaction.

Oak Park Senior Living provides a wide range of activities to keep our residents on their toes. From strength training workouts and holiday parties to baking cookies and summer bonfires, our days are packed with opportunities for camaraderie and life enrichment. Our Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care residents come together to learn new skills, develop close friendships, connect on a spiritual level and share a few laughs.

Our highly-trained Memory Care activities staff provides special programming seven days a week for all stages of memory loss, including Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. We schedule staff-led programs during the day, evenings and weekends to accommodate our Memory Care residents.

Sue Wichman

Activities Director

Sue works hard to ensure each day is fun and rewarding for our tenants at Oak Park Senior Living. Sue attended Ridgewater College in Hutchinson, Minnesota and earned NCCAP certification before joining Oak Park in 2016. Sue’s inspiration to become an activities director began after she visited her grandfather in a nursing home and noticed how proud he was to show off his bowling trophy and latest art projects. As Activities Director at Oak Park, Sue enjoys listening to our tenants’ stories and learning about their families. Sue strives to make a positive impact in the lives of our seniors and always tells people that she has the best job in the world!

Meals are served in our spacious dining room, and a private family dining room where residents can share a meal with guests in a more intimate setting.

I wanted to thank your staff for their willingness to pursue allowing my Mom to have a very short visit today (about 10-12 minutes!) with two of her granddaughters who were coming through town. This was their only opportunity to see her (the travel schedule for the others changed so we are hoping they can come in a few days and do an unscheduled “balcony to sidewalk” short visit then).

I know the heat is awful today and I certainly didn’t want my dear Mother out in it, but the short time we had was extremely precious to her and to us. It brought me to tears to see her after such a long time, and for my nieces and Mom, it brought them tremendous joy to see and talk with each other.

So, although I thanked your staff repeatedly, esp. Sue who called to get special permission for the extra-short visit, I wanted to tell you again how very much we appreciated it and how much it meant to us, and how much it lifted my Mom’s spirits.

I know the COVID constraints are causing a lot of stress and extra work for all of you, but we truly appreciate all you do, and even these little things mean the world to us.

Please pass along our thanks again to those involved. Hope you have a restful holiday weekend!
