Independent Living in South Dakota

Overview of Independent Living in South Dakota

Officially nicknamed “The Mount Rushmore State” for its top tourist attraction, South Dakota stands out geographically from other states in the Great Plains. It has its share of wide-open grasslands, particularly in the central and eastern areas of the state. But the farther west you go, South Dakota starts to look more like the American West. Badlands National Park resembles a miniature desert mountain range with peaks you can traverse in just a few minutes. In the southwestern corner of the state are the more wooded Black Hills — a small, isolated mountain range that’s home to the gigantic granite monuments of Mount Rushmore and the work-in-progress Crazy Horse Memorial. South Dakota’s cities like Sioux Falls and Rapid City are quaint and inviting with a rustic charm. Between its natural beauty, wide-open spaces, and relatively inexpensive living costs, South Dakota is an ideal retirement destination.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 10 South Dakota retirement communities.

The median monthly cost of independent living in South Dakota is about $2,300.

I would not place my Dad in a place where he didn't feel comfortable. He has been doing great since coming there. Interaction with staff has been wonderful.
