What to Consider About Assisted Living in South Sioux City

South Sioux City is located on the banks of the Missouri River, and the famous Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through the area in the summer of 1804. Today, the city has nearly 13,000 residents, and almost 13% of them are seniors. 

For local seniors who need help with activities of daily living, there are three assisted living facilities within city limits. Licensed assisted living facilities are regulated by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in South Sioux City

  • There are many interesting attractions located near South Sioux City. Some, like the Blackbird Scenic Outlook, the Lewis and Clark Campsite, and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, commemorate the famous expedition. Seniors may also want to visit the Sioux City Art Center or the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center.
  • South Sioux City has a low crime rate, and it’s safer than almost 63% of communities in the state. Nationally, the city is safer than 89% of cities. This means that seniors can enjoy a safe, comfortable retirement in this area. 
  • The South Sioux City area is home to world-class medical facilities, including UnityPoint Health - St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Sperling’s comfort index helps seniors compare the climate throughout the country. On this index, the U.S. average is 54 out of 100, and South Sioux City receives a 31. It earned this low score thanks to its cold, snowy winters. This climate may be a plus for seniors who enjoy winter sports like ice skating.
  • A major advantage of retiring in South Sioux City is a low cost of living. The city is 13.6% more affordable than the national average. While housing is the biggest factor in the city’s affordability, transportation and utilities are also less expensive than the U.S. average.
  • The American Lung Association (ALA) warns that ozone, which is often called “smog,” is one of the most dangerous pollutants. Seniors who are concerned about this pollutant may be drawn to South Sioux City for its good air quality. The ALA recently ranked American cities by ozone pollution, and the Sioux City, IA-NE-SD metropolitan area tied for the cleanest in the country.
