Nature Trail and Path
To encourage residents and visitors to enjoy the beauty of Rocky Knoll’s property, the Foundation is supporting the expansion of the existing walking trail. In the summer of 2019 the path will be reconstructed to better accommodate residents in wheelchairs, walkers, and our newly purchased Trishaw bicycle. Safety is always a prime concern, and the new path will make outdoor excursions safer and more enjoyable.
Recently the Foundation (with support from a grant through “Cycling Without Age”) purchased a Trishaw bicycle. “Cycling Without Age” is a worldwide movement whose mission is to help those with limited mobility experience the freedom of the wind in their hair, rosy cheeks, and the opportunity to experience the joys of nature.
Trained volunteers and staff members will be able to take residents for a ride on a paved hiking and biking path around the facility. Residents will be able to enjoy Rocky Knoll’s beautiful scenic views of the surrounding Kettle Moraine.
If you would like to volunteer to give rides to our residents, please call Rocky Knoll at: 920-893-6441 and ask to be connected to the Life Enrichment department.
Continuing Education Program
The Rocky Knoll Foundation is committed to assisting employees of the Health Care Center to pursue education that results in certification, recertification, licensure, or a degree that is directly related to Nursing home operations. The Foundation recognizes that on-going education is mutually beneficial to the employee, Rocky Knoll Health Care Center, and the residents we serve.
Awards range from $250 - $1000. They can be applied for by existing employees, students interested in pursuing a training program in the nursing field, or adults interested in returning to school for Nursing home operations training.
