The Importance of Involvement

Social involvement is important at any age, especially for older adults. Having an active role in the community adds purpose and meaning to their lives while also providing opportunities to build lasting friendships. Residents of The Knolls of Oxford are encouraged to be as involved in their community as they desire. Some of the biggest ways residents can be involved on campus include resident committees and social and recreational programming.

Resident Committees
At The Knolls of Oxford, we believe that the best way to improve community life for our residents is by listening to the residents themselves. Knoll’s residents have the opportunity to be involved in the Resident’s Council. This council is overseen by Laura Lacy, Executive Director, and is comprised of various committees focused on dining, safety, technology, hospitality, and activities as well as a representative from each neighborhood. Residents work with staff in these committees to provide suggestions and ideas to enhance campus life. These suggestions are reviewed at Resident Council and then passed onto administration.

Social and Recreational Programming
The amenities at The Knolls allow residents the freedom to be as active as they wish. Our 84-acre campus features a gorgeous walking paths, and gardens providing an outdoor sanctuary. You will also a Bistro, Library, Salon, and multiple spaces for resident gatherings.

Each level of care at Maple Knoll Village has trained Activity staff dedicated to ensuring our residents live their lives to fullest. This can be seen through various planned social, cultural, and educational programs. Local entertainment from the community and area colleges are frequently brought in for residents to enjoy as well.

One of the most popular activities offered is the weekly Happy Hour. Independent living residents come together to enjoy food and drinks, socialize, and even meet new people. Residents also have frequent opportunities to enjoy life outside of The Knolls by visiting the Cincinnati Zoo, attending Miami games, or enjoying an afternoon immersing themselves in the arts.
