Community Connections Award
Presented to Knollcrest Lodge
Knollcrest Lodge Recognized for
Developing Innovative Solutions to Benefit Community
On April 27th in Toronto, Knollcrest Lodge received the OANHSS “Inaugural” Community Connections Award. The award recognizes initiatives by Ontario non-profit long-term care homes that benefit both the residents of the home and the broader community.
Over the past two decades Knollcrest Lodge in Milverton has expanded to deliver services to the community far beyond those offered by traditional long-term care homes. In partnership with other organizations and service providers, Knollcrest’s Wellness Campus provides Perth East residents with access to a wide variety of health-care related services including physiotherapy, chiropractic, optometrist, blood testing and well water testing services. Knollcrest’s Community Outreach programs provide Perth East residents with Meals on Wheels, wellness and exercise programs, home maintenance and repair and transportation services.
In announcing the award, Debbie Humphreys, Acting Chief Executive Officer noted that “more than 25 years in the making, Knollcrest’s Wellness Campus has steadily grown to become so much more than a long term care. It helps people of all ages and offers services never before available in this rural area. It has grown to become a centre of wellness, and it is now a vital, necessary hub for the community”
In accepting the award, Knollcrest CEO Susan Rae thanked Knollcrest’s staff and the many community volunteers for their dedication in delivering these vital services to residents of the home and the broader community. .”We are proud of the work we have done to find innovative ways to ensure that residents have local access to the health and wellness services they need.”
Perth East Mayor Bob McMillan congratulated Knollcrest for winning the OANHSS Ontario Community Connections Award. “This award confirms what local residents already knew, that Knollcrest plays an important role in ensuring that residents in our rural community have access to the types of services that Ontarians in urban centres take for granted.” McMillan noted that Knollcrest’s innovative model for delivering rural health related services is one that other rural communities should explore and one for which the Province should increase support.
