Resident Visiting Booth
Rocky Knoll recognizes the desire for residents to visit with their family and friends. We know that the past few months have been difficult on our residents and their families as a result of the COVID-19 restrictions. In order to enhance our resident’s quality of life and bring smiles to their faces and yours, Rocky Knoll has constructed an outdoor visiting booth.

Current Projects: Continuing Education Program
The Rocky Knoll Foundation is committed to assisting employees of the Health Care Center to pursue an education that results in certification, recertification, licensure, or a degree that is directly related to Nursing home operations.
Current Projects: Nature Trail and Path

Dropping off Items for Residents and “Window” Visits
On March 12, 2020 Rocky Knoll restricted all nonessential visitation to help protect our residents from Covid-19. We know that this has been difficult for residents and families, but it has been perhaps the biggest factor contributing to the reason that as of date we have NO positive cases of Covid-19 at Rocky Knoll. We are doing our best to keep it that way!
