Presence Merkle-Knipprath Countryside

COMMUNITY OVERVIEW


As we age, our health needs change. Yet we still want to maintain a high quality of life – one that blends compassionate care with hospitality, dignity and respect. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Presence Merkle-Knipprath Countryside. Our independent living community give residents all they need to live retirement carefree. And our skilled nursing neighborhoods offer short-term care for rehabilitation and long-term care.

Ideally located in a tranquil and rural setting close to highways in Clifton, we’re easy to access.  Looking to get a taste of retirement living? We offer short-term respite stays where you can try out our community in a furnished suite with three meals a day for up to two months. In addition, we also offer short-stay rehabilitation and skilled nursing care.

Exceptional dining awaits you at Presence Merkle-Knipprath Countryside independent living community. Choose from a variety of flexible dining options beginning with our Concierge Service breakfast upon rising, which features a variety of fresh menu options prepared to order on your schedule.

As a community, we welcome all faiths, and are inspired by the mission and values of Ascension Living, to provide high-quality, compassionate, personalized care with dignity, especially to those in our communities who are most in need. This guiding vision is the cornerstone of who we are as a company: national, nonprofit and senior-focused. 

OUR LIFESTYLE

Older adults and their families consistently choose Merkle Knipprath because of our stellar reputation for remarkable care and our emphasis on hospitality. We’re also a popular choice among Iroquois County residents because of our seamless living.

Residents who choose our independent living apartments know that if their health needs change, they can move into our skilled nursing neighborhood and receive a higher level of care, while continuing to enjoy everything they already love about living here. Respite services are available in both our assisted living and skilled nursing neighborhoods.

At Presence Merkle-Knipprath Countryside we don't just bring the food from the kitchen, we bring the dining experience from the kitchen to your table. For your enjoyment, our seasoned chefs demonstrate their passion for fresh ingredients and delicious food every day. You'll feel right at home with great friends and great food in a comfortable environment. Plus, there are frequent special events, celebrations to enjoy and a regular schedule of religious services to meet your spiritual needs.

 

 

LIVING CHOICES


Quite possibly, the two most remarkable advantages of choosing Presence Merkle-Knipprath Countryside is the continuity of care and the consistency of hospitality. Residents and their families know that each of our staff members is thoughtful, professional and attentive, regardless of the level of care.

They also know that whether they choose us for their short-term rehab, or live in assisted living, skilled nursing or memory care, we offer a lifestyle that focuses on finding the most joy in each day.  

So in addition to a maintenance-free environment, inside and outside every residence – which includes housekeeping and flat linen service – every living choice we offer includes a host of amenities, including dining, social, recreational, intellectual, wellness and spiritual opportunities, scheduled transportation and much more.
