Watertown, South Dakota

Independent Living

For seniors who desire to live primarily without personal care assistance but would like the convenience of having chores and housekeeping taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. Seniors can continue to live their lives as they see fit while their food is prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private caregivers. There are a variety of benefits and expenses to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your care plan: laundry, housekeeping, utilities, field trips, cable TV, private phone, parking, and Waiting list deposit. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include golf course, security guards, transportation, game/TV room, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

Access to hospitals is an important factor when determining the best care option. The top hospitals that service Watertown include Prairie Lakes Hospital. In total, there is one hospital located in Watertown which offer emergency services and other healthcare.
