A familiar faith in each other

It’s the best of small-town living where intergenerational relationships create strong family ties. Many of our team members have known residents for most of their lives. Their family members and dear friends live here. Longtime neighbors share meals together, the grandkids bring their new puppy by for a visit, and that retired high school teacher will still talk you into going to the game.

Let’s talk and tour

An evolving tradition of care

Pleasant View has been serving older adults and their families in Ottawa and the greater LaSalle County area for more than 80 years. We’re always innovating and improving. Updating to design thoughtful environments that meet each resident’s needs. Open-minded and curious, intentionally developing smarter, more creative ways to do things better and reflect they way we care.

A friendly spirit of small-town charm

It’s just the way we like it. Spending time with people of all faiths and traditions who were raised in a place where people work hard, and together, for the greater good. From our management methods and extensive team member training to the meaningful programs that connect our residents to each other and their community, it’s truly Grace-Filled Living. And it’s easy to see why it’s the good life.

About our culture

Strengthening mind, body and spirit

And always with a smile. Pleasant View brings the happy to healthy living. Our research-based wellness model delivers residents a wide-variety of uplifting and down right fun opportunities. It’s health for the whole-person, based on the seven dimensions of wellness for active aging.

Pull up a chair, anywhere

Everyone is welcome at the table. Our restaurant-style dining venue is just one of the places our residents love to meet and greet each other. While menus change from day-to-day, they always feature fresh choices and healthy family favorites, made-from-scratch by our in-house chef. After grace, you’ll always be grateful.

Programs that bring vital benefits

Designed and developed by Lutheran Life Communities, MyVitality is a toolkit of signature programs that support our residents and their families through the natural phases of life. It’s the motivation you might need to get involved in life-enriching activities to increase energy, build resilience and look forward to living not just longer, but healthier, happier and more secure.
