About Us - Lakeview Village

About Us


From humble beginnings come great things.

Lakeview Village has been a locally owned, nonprofit leader since 1964. We were founded by five ministers, and we continue to serve people of all faiths. We are home to 700 satisfied residents from around the area and around the country, and we are the workplace of 600 caring employees. Under the leadership of an experienced Executive Team and a local Board of Directors, we are a financially stable organization with a commitment to transparency. As a nonprofit organization, only our residents benefit, not outside shareholders.


Our residents enjoy a 100-acre campus with mature trees and lovely landscaping.

As the most established Continuing Care Retirement Community in Kansas, we offer a comprehensive range of healthcare services and housing options from one-bedroom homes to spacious villas. We are located in a quiet neighborhood in suburban Lenexa, Kansas, five minutes from shopping and dining at Oak Park Mall, and near two major highways. Lenexa has been rated one of Top 50 Best Places to Live by Money Magazine.

A Vision Realized

The first building (now called Heritage Place) consisted of 201 apartment homes and a nursing care center. Lakeview Village quickly became the benchmark for Continuing Care Retirement Communities by offering residents innovative new concepts such as LifeCare and Whole-Person Wellness. Campus development steadily continued with the addition of three apartment buildings, garden cottages, duplexes, villas, and our skilled nursing care facility. Construction of Eastside Terrace, our Community Wellness Center, was completed in 2010. It houses a large, indoor swimming pool, fitness center featuring state-of-the art equipment, bistro, short-term rehabilitation services, assisted living, and more. When touring, you will notice many newly built homes by Don Julian Builders. One of our founders, the Reverend U.S. Grant, said it best: “Our overriding consideration is to create an environment of security and fullness of life for our elders.” We have worked to provide a safe, stimulating, and attractive living environment for adults age 62 and better ever since. One visit will show you how alive and well this vision remains today.
