New Changes Happening at Pleasant View
Pleasant View Skilled Nursing and Rehab has been providing 24-hour rehabilitative, long term, and dementia care since 1969. Many updates to the facility have been completed and more are scheduled for later this year. These updates all oﬀer better services to residents now and for decades to come.
Supporting our elderly population with high quality and compassionate care takes an entire community, and Green County does just that. Generous donations have supported many projects throughout Pleasant View, including those from family and friends, community organizations and service groups, and local supporters.
In addition, prudent ﬁnancial management and being awarded several grants allowed Green County the ability to ﬁnance these renovation projects. These include:
• The Friends of Pleasant View Foundation raised funds estimated at $45,000, through generous donations and memorial gifts to ﬁnance the backyard gardens and walking paths, taking advantage of the beautiful location and vast outdoor spaces.
• Non-lapsing funds from 2016 and 2017 ﬁnanced the Phase One renovation project of
$1,100,000 that included the conversion of the three car garage to a new front entrance and lobby, a porte cochère, a new Rehab Gym, four renovated resident rooms with private full bathrooms, and a renovated oﬃce area.
• In June of 2019 Pleasant View was the recipient of the Crisis Stabilization Incentive Award for Long Term Care in the amount of $271,822 to renovate a unit that would provide respite care and stabilization for those with dementia.
• In September of 2020 Pleasant View received a $2,225,980 Community Development Block Grant – Public Fund Award from the Wisconsin Department of Administration. These funds will be used to ﬁnance the replacement all of the windows and update the exterior siding and add private bathrooms to resident rooms that have shared bathrooms.
Throughout the years Pleasant View staﬀ received many requests for changes to the facility. Many of these requests were focused on resident comfort and preference - single rooms, private bathrooms, and smaller “community-like” settings were all preferred over the long hallways, double-occupancy bedrooms, and shared bathrooms of the traditional facility design.
As Pleasant View continues to meet the needs of Green County’s older citizens, they are very excited to announce that by the end of 2021 all rooms will have a private bathroom. These renovations will result in 88 private rooms and 4 semi private rooms, reducing the SNF license from 110 to 96 beds. The vision of these renovations is to create a community that is a comfortable and personalized while oﬀering the freedom to thrive in a caring, inclusive and vibrant community. The culture of smaller neighborhoods within Pleasant View also allows for the development of friendships, small social gatherings and intimate dining.
