Perspective of Purpose

You’ve been giving back your entire life, not out of obligation, but out of desire. Why stop now? It’s time to use your retirement years to serve with intention. You have stories to share, values to pass on, and skills that matter.

Now — more than ever — is your time to reach out, give back and belong to a joyful community that empowers your impact. Pleasant View Communities shares with you a Perspective of Purpose.


Welcome to the newest Residential Living expansion at Pleasant View — The Hershey Farm Cottages!


  • Resident since 2014
    My wife and I live in a cottage at Pleasant View. I don't think you’re going to find this anywhere - this is what we’ve been looking for. I love to cook on the grill and work outside, so we've created our own oasis. Every day is a Saturday!
  • Resident since 2004
    This is my home – it’s where I live, and where I want to be. It gives me a great sense of purpose and belonging that I can contribute to making this a vibrant community and a home for others as well.
