HILLVIEW PROJECT

An expansion at LaCrosse's Hillview care center remains under consideration. County board chair Steve Doyle points out that the LaCrosse campus has a nursing home and space for independent living.  But, doesn't serve assisted living clients.  People who need some care but aren't ready for a nursing home which comes as a greater expense to the county and state government.  The board will consider a new multi - million dollar facility this spring.  Even with baby boomers reaching their golden years.... Doyle says the area has less nursing home space than it did a few decades ago because more elderly people are able to stay in their homes longer or utilize other forms of care short of the nursing home.
