The largest department within Prairie View Campus is our nursing department, making up approximately 50% of our staff. Professional Registered Nurses (RN’s), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN’s) and Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s) deliver 24 hour care seven days a week to our residents with the highest degree of professionalism, kindness and respect.

Providing direct hands on care to our residents by assisting them with their need for medication administration, wound care, restorative therapy, and assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed, brushing their teeth or using the restroom is a key part of the daily care from our nursing department. Prairie View is proud of the fact that several of our employees have been employed here for over 20+ years! This demonstrates how dedicated they are to providing the best care possible to our residents, as they aren’t just another resident they become our “grandparents” and friends.

The nurses at Prairie View are very aware of the health conditions of residents and communicate any/and all changes to their physician and family. Our nurses are the eyes and ears for our physicians. Several physicians do monthly rounds at Prairie View, but for day to day care our professional nurses are the ones who notice the little things that change and catch them before they become significant. This communication is vital in our effort to deliver the best possible care to our residents.

Restorative Therapy
Prairie View is very proud of our extensive restorative therapy program. Unlike many nursing homes, we provide restorative therapy 7 days a week.

Upon admission our residents are evaluated by a licensed Physical Therapist (PT) who sets up an appropriate individualized restorative therapy program specifically for them. We have four Certified Nursing Assistants who are trained in providing the therapy to the resident as specified by the PT.

The therapy programs vary from person to person, but can include anything from walking set distances down the hall to using resistant bands or even a ride on the Nu-Step.

Our therapy room has several pieces of equipment to aide us in delivering the best possible therapeutic programs to our residents. Here at Prairie View we understand the importance of being able to do certain tasks on your own, that’s why we strive to not only enable our residents to continue to do things for themselves, but maybe even help them do more than they could when they first moved into the facility.

Social Services

Moving into a nursing home, assisted living, special care unit or even an independent living apartment is an adjustment for not only for the new resident, but many times family members as well. That is where social services comes in. Our social worker is able to spend time with our residents, tenants and family members as they go through this adjustment. Specially trained in relating to the social aspects of individuals they are able to offer advice, support and contact information to help the adjustment go a little bit smoother.

Prairie View Campus is proud of the fact that we have a full time licensed Social Service Coordinator as part of our team. This allows us the ability to assist with everything from fulfilling a room change request to assistance with a Title XIX application on a routine basis. The Social Worker is also a part of the Quality Assurance team assisting in resolving any concerns that may arise during a resident’s stay at the home.

As more and more of our residents come to the campus for a brief stay to recover or perhaps spend the winter, the social worker also assists with the discharging process of our cliental back to their home or another location.

The Social Service Coordinator is always available to listen or help in many ways with the many different aspects of living within our facilities. Be it answering questions about power of attorney paperwork, Medicare Part D plans, Long Term Care Insurance or how to purchase medical equipment, they are very knowledgeable in many areas.


The social life of our residents here at Prairie View Campus is amazing! From exercise to bingo to happy hour there is always something going on.

The activity department is made up of energetic, fun gals who set-up and conduct activities to reach the highest level of participation from our residents as possible. In Prairie View Home there are wooden display cases down three halls that display each day’s activities along with the resident & employee birthdays for the week and any resident anniversaries. Individual activities are set up for each building on the campus, but all residents and tenants can attend ANY of the activities throughout the campus.

In 1975 a 1,260 sq. ft. addition was added to the original building and was designated as the multi-purpose room, this is the location of most of the activities. A monthly activity calendar is created and hung in each resident’s/tenant’s room and attached as a link on our website Click here to download a copy of the monthly activity calendar.

The need for scheduled activities in our resident’s lives is crucial in the balance of good health and happiness. The activity department makes a special attempt to learn each individual resident’s likes, interests & hobbies in an effort to create a variety of activity programs that appeal to a large number of residents. For individuals whose physical abilities limit their participation to many of the events, we have one-on-one visits along with small group activities.

An individuals spiritual beliefs run strong and true to the very end of their time here on earth. Prairie View does an exceptional job at providing daily prayers, weekly bible studies and different services every Sunday. We also have many of our residents and tenants whom go out with family or friends to attend Sunday services at their local church and throughout the week there are several clergy whom stop and visit members of their congregation.

Dining at Prairie View Campus is anything but boring. Although there are a few variations between the different complexes, they all offer many choices not only what to eat, but when as well.

Prairie View Manor
The Manor offers two delicious homemade meals a day along with a continental breakfast. Homemade pies from scratch and salads like mom used to make are a common thing at the meals at the Manor. They also enjoy broasted chicken from Jay’s every other Sunday. Oh and don’t forget the coffee and homemade goodies to snack on every afternoon.

Prairie View Inn
Meals at Prairie View Inn are a great example of how we try to keep everything like it was at home. Tenants are able to eat when they want and what they want.

Each meal time runs for a least an hour, so if you want to sleep in or get busy you are still going to get a delicious hot meal made to order. Breakfast is made to order for each Tenant as they arrive in the dining room. From fried eggs to oatmeal and everything in-between our Tenants never leave hungry. Lunch and supper are prepared at the nursing home, but served at the Inn. Earlier in the day each tenant chooses their meal from a choice menu made up of at least 3 meal choices; a main meal, a grill of the day & a soup and sandwich of the day. Homemade muffins, salads and dessert are served with every meal. Made special for the Inn tenants every week, they even use some of the Tenants recipes from home.

Prairie View Home
A dedicated group of employees deliver three delicious meals a day to our residents of Prairie View Home.

Incorporating what we call a restaurant style of dining our residents are able to choose from at least three choices every meal. Breakfast always offers choices of both hot and cold meals ranging from French toast and bacon to oatmeal to a bowl of rice crispies. Lunch and supper have three meal choices as well; a main meal, a grill of the day and a soup & sandwich of the day. An example of a main meal would be roast beef-mashed potatoes w/gravy-corn & bread. An example of a grill of the day would be a cheeseburger with a side of onion rings, and an example of the soup and sandwich of the day would be a bowl of tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. Tenants and residents also get to choose from at least three salads and desserts at lunch & supper!

The dietary department has also incorporated a dessert cart of the week offering at least 4 different variety of dessert or an ice-cream sundae bar. We also have a dining room hostess who oversees the daily rythym of the dining room experience making sure every resident's requests are met. She arranges special meals of the month which vary from home made omelets made to order, muffin days, homemade pizza pies or a catered in meal from a local eatery.

A large variety of beverages are also offered at each meal, snack time and any time in between. If you have a craving or hunger we have a snack for that!

Oh and don’t forget the endless coffee pot in each complex’s lobby, its always on for our residents, families & visitors to enjoy!
