The Thompson Center on Lourdes is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mental, physical and emotional well-being of older adults in the community. Our center focuses on fighting the effects of loneliness, isolation and depression in seniors by offering opportunities for exercise, classes and more.
In March 2016, we moved when the senior center in downtown Appleton closed. Many seniors wondered and worried where they would go. We decided to continue on with the mission. Almost immediately, we formed an independent, non-denominational, free-standing corporation, staffed with one full-time position and supported by many volunteers. The new Thompson Center on Lourdes opened the Monday after the old downtown center closed.
Thompson Center on Lourdes used to be located in downtown Appleton. The center is now on the grounds of St. Bernadette Parish. The center includes a gym, recreation room, and dinning hall.
