    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Eureka

    Eureka is located in the northern region of South Dakota and has about 870 residents, about 400 of whom are age 65 and over. In spite of its modest size, Eureka is home to a senior center, which is open on Mondays through Thursdays. This center also serves as a local nutrition site that provides meals for pickup and delivery.

    Seniors in Eureka who need some help with activities of daily living like grooming and dressing may transition to one of the city’s two assisted living facilities. In Eureka, as in the rest of the state, these facilities are officially known as assisted living centers, and they are governed by the South Dakota Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Eureka

    • South Dakota doesn’t have a state income tax, so seniors only pay taxes at the federal level on any retirement income they draw. This may leave more money for assisted living expenses in Eureka.  
    • The Eureka area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Eureka Community Health Services Avera, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • With an overall cost of living that is about 30% below the national average, Eureka may be an attractive option for seniors with restrictive retirement budgets. Housing and utilities are very affordable here, which may drive down the cost of assisted living.  
    • Crime is a rare occurrence in Eureka, making it a good option for seniors seeking a safe city for retirement. Property crime is rated 6.0 and violent crime is rated 6.5 on a 100-point index, compared to the respective national averages of 35.4 and 22.7.  
    • Summers in Eureka are comfortable with relatively few humid days and highs around 84 degrees, providing ample opportunities for seniors to spend time outdoors. However, winters tend to be harsh with lows around 3 degrees and an average of 37 inches of annual snowfall. Seniors may want to find an assisted living facility that provides scheduled transportation for errands and medical appointments during the snowy months. 
    • The air quality in Eureka is outstanding, ranking 95 out of 100. This is almost 40 points higher than the national average, which may appeal to retirees with conditions like asthma or heart disease.
