After more than 50 years of enriching the lives of Kansas City seniors, we’re still defying expectations of what senior living can be. John Knox Village is a Life Plan Community that enables residents to live uniquely their way by providing independent living, countless services and amenities, and a full continuum of long term health care services.

“The sense of safety, the sense of security, the sense of the people here who love me, care for me — it was a turning point in my life in terms of feeling like I was really in a good place.”

— Flora, John Knox Village resident

Annual Report

Fiscal year 2021_Annual_Report – It is not humanly possible to determine one defining moment for fiscal year 2021 (April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021). When faced with the diverse challenges created by a global pandemic, the John Knox Village community never wavered in its optimism or “can do” spirit. It was a hard year; but it was a year full of inspiration and many, many demonstrations of P.R.I.D.E. (Personal Responsibility In Delivering Excellence).
