Activities & Events

Family working on a scrapbook with residents.

Today’s seniors are more active and social and are living healthier and more fulfilling lives. At McKnight Place, we offer a broad range of programming and choices to encourage the mental, physical and emotional well-being of each individual. Here, you’ll enjoy all the comfort of home along with the support you need to live each day to the fullest.

We believe our residents deserve to live their best lives. It’s this philosophy that underpins the lifestyle for residents each day at our community – from the amenities they enjoy to the variety of choices for staying active. Join a yoga class, add spice to a cooking demonstration, go on exciting excursions to local destinations – there’s always something happening at McKnight Place.

Friends & Family are invited

When friends and family visit, we often hear about that excitement for days afterward. It raises spirits and provides a noticeable feeling of pride and joy. We are always happy to welcome friends and family for meals, special events, and more. We send personal invitations to family members to join us for special community celebrations.
