John Knox Home Health Agency Celebrates 25 Years!

Residents and employees are encouraged to come celebrate John Knox Home Health Agency’s 25th Anniversary. A commemorative party will be held on Thursday, August 16, from noon to 3 p.m. in our Auditorium.

The event, with the theme “Discover the Treasure of Great Care,” will feature food and refreshments, a variety of games, prizes and other fun activities. The games will include Pin the Patch on the Pirate, Treasure Toss, Knock the Parrot off his Perch and more.

The origins of our Home Health Agency began in 1987, when the Florida Secretary of State issued a Certificate of Incorporation for what JKV initially called Support System Services Corporation. In September of 1991, the name was officially changed to John Knox Home Health Agency, Inc.

Our HHA continues to provide specialized medical services, as well as home based assistance to The Village. In addition, Broward County is benefiting from the services, from Hallandale (south) to Lighthouse Point (north), west to Coral Springs, and communities in Fort Lauderdale, Sea Ranch Lakes, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and Pompano Beach.

Services range from 24-hour a day nursing care, to weekly check-ins and medical reminders, companionship and light housekeeping.

The Home Health Agency has benefited The Village by overseeing the present Wellness Program. There are monthly screenings, which test for glucose, cholesterol, blood pressures, bone density, balance, dermatology screens, breast examinations and an assortment of equipment demonstrations.

Also, a Wellness newsletter, filled with helpful information, is distributed each month. Every May, our HHA hosts a Health and Wellness Fair featuring over 35 vendors and local medical experts.
