Life at John Knox Village
Our LifeCare Program
The Only Continuing Care Retirement Community in the Rio Grande Valley
John Knox Village is a Continuing Care Retirement Community that provides a LifeCare program. What does that mean for you? A Continuing Care Retirement Community provides the accommodations for independent living, assisted living, and nursing home care, offering residents a full continuum of care.
The John Knox Village LifeCare commitment promises comprehensive care for you as you age and your needs change — from independent living to assisted living to the possibility of more long-term care in our Health Center.
You live independently in the main building apartments, townhomes, garden cottages, or patio homes of your choice.
Our Personal Care Unit offers residents the independence of living in a residential setting, combined with the security of knowing that help is available when needed.
At John Knox Village in Weslaco, we take great pride in offering our residents an option that combines freedom and independence with personal services and caring attention. In this special setting, residents have all the comforts of home, with private suites, nicely appointed activity areas, and a tastefully decorated dining room.
Permanent Transfer to an Assisted Living Unit
If a Resident moves permanently from an Independent Living Unit to an Assisted Living Unit, there will be no increase in the Resident’s monthly service fee* except for the additional cost of meals at the established rate and ancillary charges. In the case of double occupancy, the other resident may continue to occupy the unit. The monthly service fee shall remain at the same double-occupancy rate*.
Health Care Center
As a Continuing Care Retirement Community, John Knox Village has its own Health Care Center. Our 60-bed licensed Health Center accommodates residents who need short-term or long-term licensed nursing care.
Temporary Transfer to the Health Care Center
If temporary nursing care is required, the Resident shall receive care in a semi-private room in the Health Care Center with only the cost of meals and small ancillary charges added to the resident’s monthly service fee*.
Permanent Transfer to the Health Care Center
