Pleasant View Home


Countryside Living

Independent Living Facility

Our beautiful Countryside Living has a manager who is the overall supervisor of the facility. The manager reports to the Administrator at Pleasant View Home. The manager has a wide range of duties to make Countryside Living a pleasant, lovely, friendly, secure and smoke-free place for our tenants and their guests.

As this is an independent living area, you will continue to make your doctor appointments, dentist appointments and any other appointments on your own. Should a medical emergency arise, 911 emergency help is a phone call away. Should you need nursing home services, as a tenant of Countryside Living, your name will go to the top of the list for placement.

Countryside Living provides the main meal of the day at 11:30am. Pleasant View Home and Countryside Living take great pride in the quality of the meals prepared and served here. In addition to the daily meal, tenants can enjoy a monthly breakfast together in the main dining room on the last Friday of each month at 8:30am.

Some of the services included in your monthly rent are electricity, heat, water, and garbage collection. Each apartment has its own heating and air conditioning units with its own thermostat control. The apartments are smoke-free, with smoke, fire, and sprinkler alarms installed in each apartment, as well as throughout the facility. Each apartment has a stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. A microwave is not furnished but is wired if you would desire to get one. Each apartment has access to a washer and dryer, located on each floor, at no charge. Additional housekeeping services are available for a fee. Basic cable TV is provided to each apartment. An elevator is located on the main floor. Apartment numbered and locked mailboxes are available for tenants to receive their mail, along with Monday through Saturday outgoing mail pick-up.

Guests are always welcome. One Guest Suite is located among the apartments. This room may be reserved for a nominal fee per night on a first come basis. It is suggested to call ahead for availability for the Guest Room.

We also have a beauty shop, which can be reached by a connecting hallway, near the apartments. For a fee, a licensed beautician is available for tenants’ hair care needs.

We have a total of 16 apartments (12 one-bedroom units and 4 two-bedroom apartments). There are also 6 garage stalls that are available on a first come basis for a monthly fee. A garage door opener is provided. And we have a storm shelter for those pesky Iowa summer storms!

We welcome a visit from you.

Please call 712-843-2238 to schedule a tour appointment. We will be waiting for your call!
