For more than eight years, a group of dedicated citizens from St. Paul, Kansas, labored to turn their dream of Prairie Mission Retirement Village in to reality. Their main objective was to create a high quality organization to meet the varied physical and emotional needs of elderly residents in the community. In September 1994, the nursing facility opened. A wing was added in 2001, and independent living apartments were built behind the nursing facility. In 2007, a beautiful Chapel was built that is frequently used by Prairie Mission, as well as the community.
Today, Prairie Mission Retirement Village is certified as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). CCRCs give seniors the ability to live within the same community through their life. They live independently as long as possible. This creates a high level of independence and quality of life. Over time, when they begin to need help, it is here for them. They may move to our assisted living or skilled nursing area as their needs change. This directly helps seniors to feel more comfortable and at ease. It also helps family members to know their loved one isn’t moving from one location to another and is maintaining the same high quality of care.
There is a medical clinic attached to our nursing facility which typically operates during normal business hours, and many of our residents use this for their primary medical care, but all residents are able to choose their primary care physician.
We are licensed for a maximum capacity of 50 residents in our nursing facility, 16 residents in our assisted living, and we have 8 independent living apartments, so families can be assured their family members receive the personal attention they deserve in a small town, home-like atmosphere.
