Our tour experience at John Knox Village of Central Florida was excellent. The staff was very helpful, very friendly, very knowledgeable, and very polite. It had a lot of amenities. The facility was very well-kept and very nice. The detached houses that we looked at were very nice. We had lunch, and the food was very good. The dining area was very much like a restaurant dining area. We saw an outdoor pool with a terrace around it, and there were a lot of walking areas.

John Knox Village was very nice and very big, but the wait is too long -- about three to five years for the unit. The rooms and dining area were very nice. The residents seemed very happy, and the food was good, but what we ordered was not what we expected. At the luncheon, it was excellent.

John Knox is a CCRC - has all of the facilities needed: homes, apartments, assisted living, nursing home, memory care and rehabilitation. It costs much less than others CCRCs that we have visited. It has a 5-star rating with the state. It has 4 restaurants and you can use your food money (part of your monthly assessment) to eat at any of them, whenever you choose to do so. This is a feature we really like. There is a pharmacy, nurse available at all times and doctors with appointment hours on site. They are building new duplex homes of 2,000 sq ft each side and we have opted - after inquiring about and/or visiting a dozen CCRCs - to reserve one of the new homes for us.

I like the looks of John Knox Village Central Florida. It is run really well. My husband was sent there for rehab, and they decided that long-term memory care was what he needed. The level of care they are providing my husband is very good. The nursing staff is very caring and pleasant. The have activities like sing-alongs and roundtable talks. The grounds are beautifully kept. They have beauty shops for the memory care patients.

We went to John Knox. It appeared great. It was just too large for our dad. The staff was very helpful. It was a very nice, presentable, and well-run place.

The whole grounds are beautiful at John Knox Village. You can buy a house, but when you go to assisted living, you don’t get your money back for the house, and just get a 30% discount. The room in the nursing facility is big enough for a twin bed and a little chair, and that’s it.

John Knox Village was very nice. They have assisted living and also occupational therapy if the person gets a certain surgery. They have activities, ice cream day, and they have a beauty parlor. It's a very good place, and they have very caring people. I have friends who were there also.

John Knox was really nice and very safe. They have a guard all the time as you drive in. You can't go in unless you're seeing somebody. We walked around, but we didn't actually see any activity the day that we went. It was very clean, and it didn't smell. However, it's expensive; it's way over my budget. They have assisted living, and there's a section for patients that are restricted to the bed.

We went over to John Knox, and that was very nice. We liked it very much. The food was very good, and they had several places you could eat. They had a nice dining room, and then they had a place where you could just get sandwiches if you wanted. They had little cottages, or you could have total care. They had a big theater. They also had all the games, like most of them had like cards and everything. The rooms were nice. Like I said, they had cottages, and they had rooms, or you could get suites. They had everything you would want, I would say. The staff was very congenial. They ran through everything with us including the prices. They took their time with us and told us everything that we would need to know.

This is written at the request of my mother who has been a resident for some 6 years. While John Knox has maintained its excellent services and facilities, the food quality had diminished tremendously. Since the change in chef a few years ago, the taste, selection and presentation has diminished. At one time, my mother and her friends described the food as "gourmet", "delicious" and "wonderfully displayed". Today, they continually remark on the lack of menu choices (as compared to 3 or 4 years ago), lack of presentation and mediocre flavor. As I have made several 2-week visits with her over the past 6 years, I can understand their complaints. It's not as good. I used to describe John Knox Village as the "Club Med for Senior Citizens" and rave about the dining experience. Today, the service is still outstanding as are the actual dining rooms. The food, however, is one step above institutional with interesting names and descriptions. Unfortunately, names and printed descriptions do not make the food tasty. Here's hoping the powers that be will take note and return to the quality of food for which it was known at one time. This is important to the residents. Dining is a special time to meet with residential friends and to host family and friends from outside the neighborhood. They were proud to do so but not so much now. While looking forward during the day to eating dinner with friends, they now are subjected t ho-hum food that is adequate but not particularly appetizing. Perhaps if they were new residents and didn't know how scrumptious it had previously been, they would not now be disappointed by near institutional-level cooking. Time to overhaul the kitchen crew and quality of food offered. To reiterate, however, the wait staff is still excellent.

I doubt an entertainer from the outside would know of the many activities here. Every week on Friday residents receive a Village Information paper in their mail box. There are many things shown for every day of the week. The latest week has 20 events. Then there is a page on Future Events - 14 are listed. They go through August 26.

My mom lives in John Knox Village and of all the retirement facilities that I visit, it is the best one that I have ever see. They are the jaguar of the industry. They have so many activities. They have square dancing, bingo and outings; they bring in singers to perform; they have a dance with a live band once a month; they have fun social every Friday afternoon. They have different healthy menu of food that you can choose from every night, which is at least six entree in different price ranges. The salad bar is amazing. They have different wines, which you can choose from. I never have a bad meal there. They have a monthly fee for their residents, which I think is $350 to spend on food and they can use it anywhere they want to. It is a wonderful place.

My friend is at John Knox Village and it's a very nice place. The residents were treated beautifully. They have very nice patio homes and very spacious for one or two people. The place is very nice, but it is very expensive. I can recommend it to people who can afford it.

John Knox is fantastic. But we can't get in. It's beautifully appointed, it actually smells beautiful and not just clean. It's like a hotel for sick and dying people. They have formal security. You have to wear a visitor's pass for you to come in. This is the one I would choose if I had to stay some place.

My friend Blanche was a resident several years, before having to move into the Memory Care Unit. In the Assisted Living, she had her own furnishings so she felt at home, She was surrounded by caring Nurses and care takers. I was there three and four days a week, visitingk, taking her to appointments, shopping, out to lunch and wherever she needed to go. I paid her bills, purchased all her clothes at her wishes, was the daughter she never had, her brother and neices live in another State. I was her friend, advisor and I listened to her vent when upset with her family.I attended care-givers meetings regularily to learn how to assist my friend. Being there to listen, make her feel wanted was my mission to her. She died peacefully, on a Sunday Morning before Memorial Day 2011. I miss her dearly. John Knox was a peaceful facility aimed at the residents best interest and care. I reccommend this Facility.

the whole place is well taken care of employees pay good attention to residents. there are lots of activities and trips.my aunt was very happy and well taken care of while living there. if I was moving in to a retirement community i would prefer it to be john knox village. It is a bit expensive but i believe it is well worth the cost for the level of care and service they provide.
