    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rosholt

    Rosholt, located in Roberts County, was named after James Rosholt, an entrepreneur responsible for bringing the railroad to the town. The city has a population of slightly more than 400 people, 73 of whom are seniors age 65 and over. To accommodate those who need 24-hour assistance with activities of daily living, such as medication management and bathing, there are two assisted living facilities within the city. These facilities, as well as all others throughout South Dakota, are regulated and licensed by the South Dakota Department of Health.
