The Legacy at Park View is the name of the new facility that was once Western Prairie Care Home. The Legacy opened March 25, 2009 with the move of the residents from the old building into the new. The new building is focused on the delivery of resident-centered care. It continues to provide services to Grant County and the immediate area.

Services offered include (1) routine long term care, which is assistance with one or more activities of daily living (2) respite care to provide intermittent short-term care for less than 30 days and (3) adult day care, allowing for provision of care for someone needing intermittent nursing, psychosocial, rehabilitative services.

Warm, welcoming colors reinforce the feeling of being home, instead of in a hospital. Staff are generally assigned to just that neighborhood, so they learn the daily wants and needs of those specific residents. A "homemaker" prepares breakfast individually, as each resident awakens. Environmental services, such as housekeeping, laundry and maintenance, keep the place clean, fresh and attractive, day in and day out. An active chaplainry program, as well as the support from local churches and their ministries provides spiritual support. Nutritious, well-balanced meals are served in each of the smaller, cozier dining areas on each neighborhood. Our seniors are active and involved deciding the daily activities supported by the activity department. The goal of the restorative aides at The Legacy is to maintain and enhance the physical abilities of the residents, providing medically directed care that is supervised by Registered Physical Therapists. Licensed nursing staff further enhances the quality of care provided by the frontline caregivers, the CNAs and CMAs. Occupational and speech therapies are contracted services also available to the residents. Beauty Shop services are available on-site two days a week. The administrative and business office staff works hard to see that the admission and the billing process flow easily for residents and their families.
