Founded in 1970, Prairie View offers a lovely setting with expansive prairie views where residents often spot wildlife, including pheasants and deer. Our newest addition features large, comfortable rehabilitation resident rooms, a spacious therapy area and an activity room. We are proud of the services we offer and the quality of care we provide to residents and their families.

My mom has aphasia and the staff really makes an effort to understand her and meet her needs. I love the environment at Prairie View. The residents are happy and I often hear them and staff laughing together. There are always plenty of activities for residents to choose from. I rate the facility a 9 on a scale from 1-10. I have no worries about my mom living at Prairie View. They treat her like family and really care about her.
