Assisted Living Shortage Addressed With New Facilities

The gap between the need for assisted living facilities and the spaces available will close a little with the opening of a new community and new construction plans, reports the Rapid City Journal.

Multiple studies are showing marked increases in the over 50 population and the need for assisted living facilities in the next few decades. The Village at Skyline Pines, which will be completed this upcoming June, and an addition to the St. Martin Village housing planned for 2018, will add 130 beds for those needing long term care and assisted living facilities in Rapid City.  These projects are also expected to provide full time jobs for more than 60 employees.
