John Knox Village East is one of the most affordable senior living communities in the Lafayette, Johnson, Saline, Ray and Jackson County areas. We are the only Life Care Community in this area providing residents the ability to age in place and provide for their long term care needs should they arise at a predictable, affordable rate. While we provide for long term care should you need it, our primary objective is to keep you as independent as possible for as long as possible. Being a Life Care Community allows people to know what their cost will be every month regardless of what level of care they need since their monthly rate follows them from Independent Living to Assisted Living and to Skilled Nursing Care.>Meyer Care Center which is the health center on our John Knox Village East campus originally opened in 1965 after the George J. and Hilda Meyer Foundation donated 546 acres in 1960 to be utilized for a nursing home and hospital. Their vision for a hospital was not realized and in 1975, Independent Living apartments were built allowing for the continuum of care to be provided for all in one place. Our Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing accommodations operate as part of the George J. and Hilda Meyer Foundation, which operates as a not for profit corporation, allowing any excess funds to be reinvested into the community to enhance the amenities for those who call John Knox Village East & Meyer Care Center home.>We are located on 40 acres in Higginsville, MO which is about an hour East of Kansas City. Higginsville was recently named one of the top 10 places to retire in the state of Missouri. With our proximity to Kansas City, our residents are able to enjoy the warmth and affordability of a smaller town, but are still able to go to Kansas City for shopping and dining. Our leadership staff has well over 50 years of combined experience in senior living. Our health center is the only 5-Star-Rated Health Center in this area. >One of the best features about our community is that with the availability of the different levels of care (Independent Living, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing) residents are able to move between levels of care within the same campus. This is especially appealing to dual residents requiring different levels of care. If one person is in Assisted Living and the other is residing in their Independent Living apartment, a visit is a simple walk down the hall to a different neighborhood within our community, rather than a drive to a neighboring town.>Many items that you need are all available on our campus. Residents have access to exercise and wellness programs, transportation, meals, beauty and barber shop, convenience store, housekeeping, laundry, fitness center and more. Should you need it, physical, occupational, cardiac and speech therapies are all available on-site and therapists are available to work with you in your apartment in many cases.>We also have undergone a recent renovation adding 16 rehab suites, a physical therapy gym, a renovated kitchen and new dining areas.
