    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chamberlain

    Located in Brule County, Chamberlain is a small city beside the Missouri River that's known for its rich history of native culture. With a population of just 2,600, the area offers a charming, small-town feel. Of its residents, around 18% are aged 65 and older, and they may benefit from the care services offered at an assisted living center.

    The Chamberlain area has three of these facilities for seniors. All assisted living centers across the state are licensed by the South Dakota Department of Health, Office of Health Care Facilities Licensure and Certification.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chamberlain

    • Chamberlain offers a variety of recreational opportunities and attractions for retirees to enjoy. Active seniors can take a walk on the paths along the Missouri River, shop for antiques at the Old West Trading Post or learn about the area's native roots at the Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Center.
    • Though slightly warmer than other cities in South Dakota, seniors may find it difficult to cope with Chamberlain's cold and snowy winters. Temperatures can drop below 10 degrees and the area sees around 40 inches of snowfall. However, summers are quite pleasant with temperatures in the mid-to-high 80s.
    • Chamberlain is an extremely affordable option for budget-conscious seniors. It receives an index rating of 78, which is lower than both the U.S. national average of 100 and South Dakota state median of 88.3.
    • Compared to national averages, Chamberlain sees a very high rate of both violent and property-related crimes. Violent crime scores a 35.3 on a scale to 100 compared to the U.S. national average of 22.7. Property crime is also higher with a rating of 49.8 compared to 35.4 on a national level.
    • The Chamberlain area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Sanford Chamberlain Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • South Dakota does not have a state income tax, so residents of Chamberlain are not taxed on their Social Security benefits, pensions or other retirement income. This could leave extra money to help cover the cost of assisted living care services.
