Long Term Care
We're not just a home - we're a family.
Valley View Living Center is a licensed 60-bed intermediate nursing care facility nestled in the heart of the beautiful Loup River Valley. Embracing Valley County Health System's core values of integrity, compassion, ownership, respect and trust, we provide high quality nursing care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our caring and experienced staff recognizes the role they play in bridging the gap that is felt by residents and their families when nursing home care becomes a reality. Our goal is to make our facility your home.
Valley View Living Center is a comfortable, attractive facility where residents can feel at home. All residents, with their families, are encouraged to decorate and arrange their room to reflect their unique and personal style. Our Atrium is large and spacious. Beautifully decorated, it holds a kitchenette, aviary, large screen TV, piano, and a lovely fireplace which is warm and inviting on those cool fall and winter days. Residents and their families can relax with all the comforts of home.
Valley View Living Center also houses a beauty salon where our female residents will find themselves pampered and looking their best. Not to leave out the men, Monday mornings are barbershop days. A nice shave and lively conversation gets the day off to a great start.
Our residents enjoy delicious, nutritious food with meals planned and supervised by our dietician. Special nutritional needs are not a problem. Our large and attractive dining room provides room for socialization with other residents and staff.
When choosing a nursing home, a very important consideration is availability of quality healthcare. Located in close proximity to Valley County Health System, we have access to physicians, emergency care, and specialty services such as lab and x-ray. Excellent healthcare services are immediately available without the necessity of a long van ride. Please click here to learn more about these services.
Activities at Valley View Living Center are offered daily with a wide variety of unique and entertaining things for residents to enjoy. Many are personalized to our residents' individual needs and our goal is to keep them connected to the community, their friends and family. Scheduled events include van rides, newspaper reading, live musical entertainment, Bible studies, exercises, birthday parties, and our favorite - Bingo. And, of course, you can't have activities without delicious snacks!
Social Service staff is available to residents Monday through Friday. Their caring service starts at admission to help residents and families through the process of transition from home to the nursing home. Emotional support and help with financial questions is just the beginning. Throughout your stay with us, Social Services is available to answer questions and determine what opportunities may best benefit each resident.
Valley View Living Center is staffed with highly skilled, professional nurses. RNs and LPNs are specially trained in dementia care, wound care and end-of-life care as well as day-to-day routines and activities. Our CNAs, supervised by our professional nurses, assist our residents with their daily needs and provide some fun and smiles along the way. Restorative Care is available to help maintain the function and abilities the resident has and to help slow the loss of abilities as disease progression occurs.
