Dakota Hills Assisted Living is housed in a converted residential home in a peaceful neighborhood. The small size of the community ensures that all residents receive personalized care and assistance and that everyone is treated like family. A team of caregivers is always on hand to assist seniors with the tasks of daily living and medication management. The community focuses on assisting veterans and can help veterans to apply for benefits that help them to pay for assisted living. Three home-cooked meals are served family-style each day in the dining room and residents are encouraged to spend time socializing over meals. The dining room is where seniors can spend time with family and friends or take part in activities such as card games, Bible studies, puzzles, watching TV and listening to music.

They like that community is in a peaceful neighborhood but it is still conveniently close to downtown shops and restaurants.
