The new Flandreau Santee Sioux ‘Living Center’ is approximately 55,000 sq. ft. with a total of 42 rooms designed to care for those that are aging or in need of assistance and rehabilitation after illness or an injury. Fourteen of the rooms, the south wing, will be dedicated to memory care (Alzheimer’s etc.). The project broke Ground on November 4th, 2020 and took nearly two years to complete. Ultimately, even with the challenges of getting materials and COVID restrictions, tribal leaders say that the project came in under budget and ahead of schedule.
