Pleasantview Core Values





Spiritual Life

We believe a spiritual life is essential to a fulfilling life, so we provide a chaplain to help with the spiritual aspects of aging. They provide confidential one-on-one time with residents. They also lead group functions such as Bible studies, prayer groups and memorial services.

Social Life

Pleasantview offers weekly and monthly activities to keep Villagers active. They include bus trips, potlucks, games, book discussions, dining out, entertainment and guest speakers. Daily exercise groups are offered.


Pleasantview Villagers have peace of mind with access to nursing support two times annually. Villagers will also have opportunities for podiatrist care, dental care, flu shot clinics, and much more.
