Laurie Care Center Laurie Knolls were excited to get a new minivan in August 2015 and a new bus in November 2015. The new minivan is perfect for taking residents to their doctor appointments. It easily holds a wheel chair which rolls in easily up the ramp and is very convenient and efficient to talk a small number of residents to their destinations. The bus is very nice for taking residents on outings like shopping, fishing or a picnic at the park. Our resident are excited for a chance to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and do fun things in the community. We are very grateful to MO Dot for giving us a grant to make it possible for us to get these new vehicles. It is our goal to make our residents lives as pleasant as possible.
