Avera Brady first opened its doors in June 1961 to provide a dignified and peaceful quality of life for those seeking long-term care. Thus began a long, solid tradition of high-quality senior care. In June 2011, Avera Brady celebrated 50 years of caring for some of the community’s most revered citizens and friends.
