I am a97 year old resident. When Rick drives the van on doctor visit days, he opens the door for me and walks me all the way inside. When he picks me up, he comes inside and assists me back out to the van. I had to have a heart monitor returned and he graciously volunteered to do it for me. Rick is a caring individual with a huge heart!

We placed my mother at College View in November 2013. Julie and her staff are simply great at what they do. Then there is the facility, it is BEAUTIFUL, clean and well maintained. I looked at every facility within a 50 mile radius of Joplin and College View set the standard by which the others were judged. The dietary services are simply first class. There are aids to help mother with her showers and other activities of daily living that I simply can't do. Mother loves the new friends and it doesn’t end there. Mother was able to keep her dog too! I feel very comfortable knowing mother is being cared for when I am not there. College View, it is a decision I have not regretted!
This place is great. They had the Ozark Bards play in the community room for a party in February. This month they came back for St. Patrick's Day and played Irish ditties during dinner in the dining hall. Also in February was a Fat Tuesday celebration with a live band. I am a brain injured 45 year old with some mobility issues and sight problems. I did an internet search on assisted living in the Joplin area, was surprised they had this in Joplin (I'm from Webb City) and was impressed with all the services and amenities. I wrote for information, visited once to fill out paperwork and was in within 3 days. One thing that was the clincher for me is I have a difficult time remembering to take my keys with me. They just handed me the pass key the two times I have forgotten my keys. There is an event calendar too. I program my smartphone with all the happenings during the month. In addition to the Dr. trips and stores, there are trips to the Spiva Art Centre, plays at MSSU, local businesses and restaurants. The staff is just great, all so outgoing, and food is terrific. From housekeeping to dining to the executive director all will make you feel welcome. I have to include maintenance, the recreation director and the sales manager. It took me a couple of weeks for it to all sink in. This is the best place I have ever lived.
Are you a resident of College View Manor or a family member of one? We'd love to hear your thoughts about the community!
