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.

Knollcrest Lodge opened in 1972 as a result of local people responding to a need to look after its own people.  We take pride in the excellent quality of Care that we deliver to our residents and their families.  We also take a special pride in our involvement and integration with the area we serve. 

We employ about 120 full- and part-time staff, and with an annual operating budget approaching $4 million, we are one of the largest economic contributors in the region.

Knollcrest Lodge is a non-profit charitable organization with a long history of successful support from many generous donors; this support has allowed us to add many benefits to both our Residents and the Community over the years.  We also enjoy the contributions of over 200 bighearted volunteers.

Today, Knollcrest Lodge is a multi-faceted organization offering many programs and services for the community:

•  Knollcrest Lodge is an excellent 78-bed Long Term Care home, and we consistently achieve high standards of compliance.  The Home offers high quality care and programs delivered by a professional staff, and in 2008 we opened our new resident home areas that has enhanced the living environment for more comfort, dignity and privacy. 
•  Community Outreach delivers eleven varied programs and services to area residents to enable them to live independently in their own homes.  One of the key services we provide is transportation, vital in a rural area. We help people can get around for, shopping, appointments, or just visiting friends
•  The Milverton and District Medical Centre opened in the lower level of the Knollcrest building in 2001 as a result of a tremendous community effort to convert available space in the Home to a vital community asset, and retain local primary healthcare - two physicians and their staff
•  As part of the redevelopment process, Knollcrest has developed available Lease Space for additional on-site services and programs for the community.  More healthcare services in this space would greatly complement the Medical Centre
•  We are planning to develop Milverton Place, a 12-unit seniors Life Lease apartment complex that will have supports available from Community Outreach.  7 Units are currently SOLD!
