Life at McKnight Place

McKnight Place has served St. Louis for over 30 years by providing impressive accommodations, beautiful surroundings, and uncompromised service in our assisted living facilities. Our local owners set the standard for quality long-term care, short-term stays, and wellness. We didn’t build a nursing home; we built a retirement community worthy of our own friends and family – selecting every detail, every healthy meal, and every activity with care.


In addition to our calendar of events, our gorgeous care community—located on the campus of our sister home, The Gatesworth—provides easy access to worship, shopping, dining, outings, and everything else in the St. Louis area, including Clayton, St. Louis Hills, and beyond.


Living at McKnight Place means you have access to a long list of amenities designed to help make life more comfortable and enjoyable. Here, you’ll find everything from gardens and gourmet dining to beauty and barber salons.


We offer several floor plan options ranging from studios and deluxe suites to spacious one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with features like bay windows, custom-wood kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, full-size refrigerators, and more.
