Open doors. Open hearts.

At John Knox Village East, we’ll welcome you with a genuine smile, a warm cup of coffee and a lifestyle you won’t find anywhere else in the Lafayette County area. Smart, secure and simply the best decision you can make for your future, we also bring the natural beauty and tranquility of a 40-acre campus, complete with the highly-rated Meyer Care & Rehabilitation Center. Being a Life Plan Community means you’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing your healthcare needs are covered, while maintenance-free living will let you shed the worries of keeping up your own home. It’s where neighbors are truly neighbors and it’s also where you belong.

Moving to a senior living community is a big decision, so it’s important to get it right.

Come and stay at John Knox Village East to get the full experience and try it out before you decide!


Resident Testimonials

There’s nothing quite like hearing what a place is like from the people who make it home. Here are a few words from our residents:


“I moved into the independent living November, 2019 with a variety of health problems. My family encouraged me to make the move. They recognized that I needed more support than I could receive at home. They agreed that John Knox would provide the support I needed and the investment was affordable. Since then my health has improved. When I gave up my car, they provided rides to many doctor’s appointments. The nursing staff has supported my medical needs and they talk directly to my family when they call for information. I enjoy the housekeeping, maintenance, and and dining services. The activities are varied and fun. I can choose as many as I want to do. The staff are professional, pleasant and helpful. The residents are friendly. I have thrived, my health has improved, and I have made new friends. The atmosphere has a country feeling. I am grateful that I made this move.” – Mary D.


“This was the safest places I could be. They do everything for us and go the extra mile.” – Sydney B.


“If I need anything they will get it for me. You just tell them and they will take care of it.” – Pat S.


“This was the best place for my wife and I to be in 2020. This is exactly where we should be.” – LeLand B.


“Jeff Merritt, our Executive Director, has done an excellent job. I have felt very safe and taken care of during this time.” – Janet Z.


“I’m so thankful I’m here. We get a newspaper every month and in November it said “What are you thankful for?” and the first thing I thought was “I’m at John Knox Village East.” Dorothy P.


“I took a long time making a decision and I am so happy with the decision I made to move here. It was the right decision for me.” – Betty W.
