PHILLIPS - You can't beat the comfort of Home Sweet Home but as we get older, many of us need special care that only a nursing home can offer.
Aspirus Pleasant View's campus in Phillips is getting a 3-point-9 million-dollar renovation. This will make it feel more like home to its 60 residents. The campus will get new heating, air conditioning, fire alarms, lounges, and technology. In addition all resident rooms will get a private shower.
"We want it to be a facility that a son or daughter would like to have their parents or loved ones come to to receive their care," says Jerry Frese, Pleasant View Administrator.
The campus has three wings set to be renovated. The wings will be remodeled one-by-one. Each wing takes about 3 months to finish.
"We will be relocating residents off of each wing as it comes up for renovation. So there will be some inconvenience for the family members and staff but the end product will be well worth the inconvenience."
Aspirus hopes to start the renovation by December. Everything should be finished in July 2014.
