Florida Living Meant for You In the heart of sun-filled, fun-filled Florida, St. Joseph’s John Knox continues an award-winning 35-year tradition of offering residents the active lifestyle and security of their retirement dreams. Our community is a 14-acre, not-for-profit, faith-based retirement destination dedicated to making every resident’s lifestyle one that is “meant” just for them. Right within our own campus, the conveniences of libraries, a Chapel, bank, and post office; gift shop, convenience stores, hair and nail salons and so much more, make it possible to have the “world” right outside your door! A “family” of nearly 700 residents hails from many of our 50 states and overseas, while others come from just a few miles away. They bring their own life experiences to share the “experience of a lifetime” with others – amidst the healthy year-round Florida weather and spectacular sunshine. But the sunshine’s energy gets strong competition from life in the thriving metropolis of one of America’s fastest growing cities. Tampa offers everything from a relaxing stroll through a museum to a nail-biting professional sports event. For some, the lure of outdoor recreation, golf, fishing and year-round civic festivals is unsurpassed by almost any location in the country. Yet, for indoor enthusiasts, the countless museums, symphony orchestras, ballets, theatres, shopping options and educational opportunities keep calendars too full to manage!

Enhancing your life . . . St. Joseph’s John We offer a choice of affordably priced and refundable plans, and a diverse array of future healthcare options so you can customize the plan that’s right for you. With our Franciscan sponsor, St. Joseph’s Hospital nearby, our residents are secure within a unique milieu of physical, mental and spiritual support. Take a look and explore how St. Joseph’s John Knox can enhance your lifestyle and find out how we make RetireMeant just for You!


Knox is MEANT for you.


Enhancing your life . . . St. Joseph’s John


Lifestyle Meant for You Have you ever looked up the definition of the word “retire”? The meaning is actually the opposite of what most of us have planned for the best years of our lives. Rather than stopping or withdrawing from anything, retirement is the first chance many have to truly focus on lifelong interests, engage in new activities and nurture new relationships. Whether you’re a long time resident of Tampa Bay with roots in the community, or a newcomer who yearns for new involvement, cultural and educational opportunities are within steps of home. And while many of our residents continue to drive themselves, others want the relaxing experience of door-to-door transportion. The excitement in the Tampa Bay area doesn’t have to include negotiating traffic as much as it requires negotiating your own schedule! Full-time activities make sure that residents’ interests are stimulated and fulfilled. The extraordinary commonalities between people of diverse backgrounds spawn growth through sharing. Plus the many interests that residents do have in common, find expression in uncommon venues! Join a high-stakes card game. Or brush up on ballroom dancing in our Dance Studio. Now is the time to seriously learn how to master a computer, with others who are starting at your level. Why not take a woodworking or craft class and achieve proficiency with those who have already mastered lifelong skills?

Knox is MEANT for you. Among our activity areas: • Art studio and craft room • Jacuzzi • Fully equipped exercise area • Woodworking shop • Libraries • Card and game room • Theatre • Dance studio • Social lounges • Shuffleboard courts • Olympic length heated swimming pool Whether you’re growing through change or changing through growth – you’ll find the active lifestyle at St. Joseph’s John Knox “un-retiring” and Meant just for You.


Wellness Meant for You How do you define wellness? Reading a good book by the pool after an invigorating swim? Starting the Tai Chi or Yoga classes you’ve put off ? Exercising on state-of-the-art equipment? Aerobics and cardiac training? Do you dream of a leisurely Saturday soak in the Jacuzzi and a massage?

Enhancing your life . . . St. Joseph’s John Or are you one who would rather spend your quiet time in our Chapel which offers inter-denominational services? And who ever said that wellness didn’t include a weekly pampering? Our on-site hair and nail salons meet all your needs before an evening out on the town! We call that “swellness”! Nurturing the mind, body and spirit of each of our residents has been a priority for over 35 years. The truth is that wellness has different meanings to all of us. But every component that enhances our physical, mental and spiritual well-being, is what makes us “whole” and healthy. So, no matter how you spend your relaxing moments or your high-energy ones, St. Joseph’s John Knox views your pursuit of wellness as a comprehensive and holistic endeavor. Whether you expand intellectually by taking classes or decrease an expanding waistline with a personal nutrition plan, it’s easy to be involved in programs geared toward wellness right here on campus, in addition to the countless services in the Tampa Bay area. Meanwhile, you can grab a cup of gourmet coffee in our café, waking up your “inner rhythm” before heading over to our Dance Studio for jazz or ballroom instruction! Whatever you choose, our wellness philosophy will keep you on your toes – inside the Dance Studio or outside on our grounds. However you define wellness, we define it Meant just for You.

Choices Meant for You Choice – a small word with big opportunities for growth and fulfillment. We learn about choices as a part of our “inheritance” – either in a local or national political election or simply at a smorgasbord buffet family dinner. We are taught about choices when we are very young and understand that we must give turns and share. Choice is something we expect and cherish. We give it to others and we deserve the same in return. Of all the amenities and comforts we offer our residents, choice is the most vital. Not only do we offer a full array of comforts and services, but we provide a maintenance-free lifestyle so you can enjoy the choices in your environment. Have to change a light bulb or hang a picture? Need catering for a family birthday party in our private dining room? Or do you just want the peace-of-mind in the privacy of your own residence offered by our 24-hour security? Service is just a call away.

Knox is MEANT for you. Don’t want to worry about housekeeping, planning menus and meals, transportation and pharmacy delivery needs? Those days are long gone! We do it all for you with great pride, as we’ve done for 35 years. Furthermore, we recognize that our mission and service offer you the ultimate choice – to enjoy your independence while living your dreams, as we fulfill your needs. Choices and services especially MEANT for you: • Grocery/convenience stores • All utilities except phone • Nail and hair salons • Satellite television • Branch banking • Fully equipped kitchens • Skilled nursing services • Home health services • Priority access to assisted living • Rehabilitation services • Weekly on-site physician’s appointments • 11 laundry facilities • Pastoral services and non-denominational throughout campus chapel services • Emergency call systems in each apartment Whatever your choices are – lifelong habits or newfound interests, it’s our goal to make St. Joseph’s John Knox Meant just for You.
