Feel good. Live long.
It’s no secret that lifestyle choices contribute to longevity and successful aging with dignity. To maintain an overall zest for living, the one thing you can do is … everything. At John Knox Village, we offer just that, with 7 dimensions of wellness:
- Physical – Mobility, balance, activity and diet
- Intellectual – Brain fitness, discussion groups, book clubs, games
- Social – Engagement, cooperation and fun
- Spiritual – Peace and faith, supported by a full-time chaplain and vespers choir
- Emotional – Belonging, contentment and stability
- Financial – Security and independence
- Community – An inherent appreciation for everyone’s unique character
Stretch your mind.
Our lifelong learning programs get rave reviews from residents. Take a class on a subject you’ve always wondered about. Or share your talents – our Brain Fitness Program features residents-as-teachers in a range of topics. The goal is to stay sharp, stimulate memory and hone critical-thinking skills.
Flex your body.
Take part in vigorous programs with a trainer or low-impact Tai Chi, under the guidance of a master instructor.
Aqua aerobics and water games are exhilarating and a splashy hoot. Or simply step out your door and enjoy the walking paths and tree-lined neighborhoods. There’s even a 1,000-Mile Club – a group of residents who walk 1,000 miles in a year. You’re welcome to join them.
Activities abound to stretch and strengthen – our full-time fitness coordinator sees to it. She’ll work with you to stay fit now, and she also plays a meaningful role in helping residents age with dignity, bridging the gaps between our continuum of care.
We believe in wellness with all our HEART.
Why should residents have all the fun? HEART (Healthy Employees and Residents Together) lets staff in on the action too. This program supports a community culture in which we’re all encouraged to develop healthier habits for happier lives.
Stoke your social life.
Life at John Knox Village is built for human connections. There are limitless opportunities to meet new people through organized events, at meal times, and simply by living in a social community. If you don’t already have a friend here, you will soon.
