Frequently Asked Questions

A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC or Life Plan Community) is a residential community for older adults (typically age 62+) that provides a variety of living options, along with services, amenities and a continuum of care designed to address the changing needs of residents as they age. A CCRC, like Pleasant View, offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, Short-Term Rehabilitation, Memory Support and Skilled Nursing on a single campus.

CCRCs, like Pleasant View, give residents confidence in their plan for the future. They’re making their own forward-thinking decisions, rather than burdening family or having to make a rushed decision. Residents are able to live in the same community if their needs change. This alleviates the stress of moving multiple times and maintains existing relationships in a familiar environment. Being on one campus also enables couples to remain close to each other if one person requires a higher level of care.

Lutheran Life Communities has been faithfully serving older adults by providing residential and healthcare options since 1892. We are a not-for-profit, mission-based organization and welcome people of all faiths, beliefs and traditions. Pleasant View is one of four communities in Indiana and Illinois.

Not having to focus our efforts on the interests of investors means our organization is able to fully shape the Pleasant View experience around the residents’ needs and preferences. It enables us to focus on maintaining our high standards and strong values, reinvesting any realized margin back into the community for the benefit of residents.

When making a move is the right choice, our relocation and move partners will lessen the stress with hands-on assistance in sorting, packing, unpacking, and organizing a new home with customized furniture placement and safety recommendations. Ask your sales counselor for more information.
