What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sturgis

Though world famous for its motorcycle events, the city of Sturgis, South Dakota also features many senior-friendly services and amenities, including the Meade County Senior Citizen Center which hosts a variety of events, from craft fairs and silent auctions to a Thanksgiving meal.

Sturgis also has three assisted living facilities with six more facilities located nearby to help accommodate the needs of the city’s senior demographic which is nearly 20 percent of the overall population. The South Dakota Department of Health licenses and regulates these facilities that are designed to provide assistance to seniors with daily living activities. Some area facilities may also offer specialized care for seniors with dementia or certain disabilities. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sturgis

  • The city of Sturgis is home to world-class medical facilities, including Regional Health Sturgis Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • The cost of living index in Sturgis is 90. This is good news for seniors living on fixed incomes because this rate is well below the national average which is 100.

  • Although there are no fixed routes in Sturgis, Prairie Hills Transit provides scheduled ride services. Seniors aged 60 and older are asked to provide a donation as payment for their ride.

  • Safety is important to many seniors. Sturgis has an average annual crime rate of 2,000 per 100,000 people. This is considerably less than the national average which is 2,837.

  • Sturgis has a four-season climate. The summer high is an average of 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Seniors may find winters more difficult, though, as they are long, windy and feature a January average low of 13 degrees Fahrenheit.
