    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clark

    The small South Dakota city of Clark has just over 1,100 people, about 33% of whom are age 65 and over. It's been designated a Tree City U.S.A. for over two decades and hosts annual events that celebrate its local trees. The city also has a vibrant arts and crafts scene and hosts an annual Arts in the Park craft show, where seniors can browse home interior decor, magnetic jewelry, baked goods and sauces and seasonings made by local vendors and artisans.  

    Seniors seeking assisted living services in Clark have two facilities to choose from. These facilities are officially referred to as assisted living centers, and they are licensed by the South Dakota Department of Health to provide supportive services, housing and meal services to seniors.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clark

    • South Dakota doesn’t impose state income tax on any type of income, including retirement income. This may enable seniors to put more money toward assisted living services in Clark.   
    • The Clark area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Webster. 
    • The overall cost of living in Clark is rated 71.8 on a 100-point scale based on the national median, meaning that it's considerably more affordable to live here than in the average U.S. city. This may make it a good option for seniors with tight assisted living budgets.  
    • Violent crime in Clark is rated 11.0 and property crime is rated 22.0 on a 100-point scale, which is considerably lower than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. This may provide peace of mind for seniors who are moving here for assisted living. 
    • Over the course of the year, temperatures in Clark range between 3 degrees and 83 degrees, making it one of the cooler places in South Dakota. To promote socialization and engagement during the cold months, many assisted living facilities host activities like games, arts and crafts and educational classes. 
    • Clark's air quality is rated 94 on a 100-point index, compared to the national average of 58. This indicates a very low level of harmful pollutants, which may make it a good option for seniors with conditions like COPD or heart disease.
