The nursing home of the future is finally coming to South Florida. And it will look and feel a lot like — well, a home. John Knox Village, a continuing care retirement community in Pompano Beach, plans to start construction on the first certified Green House nursing home in Florida next fall.
At the October 2 Foundation Campaign Kick-off for our new GREEN HOUSE Homes, our Resident Auxiliary Services (RAS) was recognized for contributing $100,000 toward the New Health Center Fund. A couple days later, the group of RAS volunteers gathered for a photo with the large check.
In 1978, with the help of administration, our residents formed the initial structure for what became RAS. Today, the John Knox Village organization thrives. Volunteers help facilitate the Curiosity Shop, furniture shop, large print library in Cassels Tower, Maggie Goetz Library in Village Centre and at the reception desks in Cassels, Heritage, Village Towers and Gardens West (assisted living).
All of the funds raised from selling items in the Curiosity and furniture shops are utilized to improve various areas and departments at John Knox Village.
