When you live at John Knox Village, time is on your side. Life-care living may actually extend life. Many of the John Knox Village residents move here in their 60s and 70s. They remain active longer, eat nutritionally and enjoy social interaction, which keeps them young at heart. Plus they have the peace of mind that nursing care will be provided, if and when the need arises. Many of our residents are living independently well into their 90s and even 100s.
The residents of John Knox Village enjoy an active lifestyle. They travel, take part in computer and fitness clubs, play bridge, and relish the many outside entertainment programs in the 300-seat auditorium. They are active in Village affairs serving as corporate board members, or participating on the Village Senate. They are also active in the community, and they volunteer. In fact over half are regular volunteers throughout the Village. The big difference between the residents of John Knox Village and those folks who don’t have a long-term life-care plan is that our residents know where and how they will be cared for.
As a resident – free from the mundane chores of everyday life – you’ll have the time to pursue travel, bridge, crafts, sports and the joy of new friendships.
