    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Parkston

    • The Parkston area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Armour.

    • Parkston can get pretty cold. Temperatures in the winter months average as low as 10 degrees and the city can see as much as 36 inches of snow every year. On the other hand, seniors can also enjoy warm weather as temperatures in the summer months average around 88 degrees.
    • The crime rate in Parkston is really low, making it one of the safest places for seniors to live. Violent crime scored 11.3 points lower than the national average, and property crime is 28.2 points lower.
    • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave Parkston a 91 for air quality, which is significantly higher than the national average of 51. That means that Parkston's air is mostly free of pollutants, and it's an excellent location for seniors who suffer from respiratory diseases.
