Activities

Don’t count on sitting home alone when you’re a resident at Savannah. You’ll quickly find friends who enjoy the same things you do. Whether you are part of a card game, Bible study, exercise class or enjoying a musical performance, you’ll have a great time being part of Savannah and campus activities.

Exercise: Because staying as active as you can for as long as you can is important both mentally and physically, you will find a number of classes to help you feel great and keep you going. Several times a week you can enjoy water aerobics in the Tower Spa & Wellness Center’s indoor saltwater pool. Walking trails throughout campus attract residents who love to mix exercise with nature, enjoying the beautiful grounds and mingling with the Canada geese who call The Oaks home! If mobility is a concern, chair aerobics and chair yoga are designed with you in mind.

Spiritual Services: Of course, with The Oaks’ multifaith heritage, spiritual nourishment is important. Choose not only from an array of worship and prayer services in the Chapel at The Oaks but Bible studies and the popular Spiritual Pathways series with insight into various religious faiths.

Lifelong Learning: University at The Oaks is an outgrowth of Live Oak University, a program featuring university professors talking on topics of interest. Whatever the topic, you know it will be interesting. Recent years have brought presentations and seminars on Henry VIII, Catherine the Great, Louisiana’s Longs, U.S. Civil War, the Borgias, and the Bicentennial of Louisiana. These programs and several others are open to the community, so you’ll want to invite your community friends and family to join you. While community members pay for programs with a fee, these programs are free to residents.

Entertainment: Whether you like to sing along or just listen, music in all forms is presented each month at The Oaks of Louisiana. You’ll hear music from children’s choirs, Shreveport Opera Xpress, Centenary Suzuki School, among others. There are singalongs with entertainers like Marilyn Hull or country music guitarist Garland Williford. There’s even been a sighting of “Elvis,” who entertained to thunderous applause as he broke into “Jailhouse Rock.”
