Avera Sacred Heart Senior Services

On May 9, 2001, residents of Avera Sister James Care Center moved into their new home at Majestic Bluffs. With the help of over 125 volunteers, residents and their belongings, beds and furniture moved into 113 resident rooms in less than six hours.

The following June, over 1,000 people from the Yankton region toured the new Avera Sister James Care Center. The special day began with a dedication ceremony, where Sr. Mary Kay Panowicz, OSB, Chair of the ASH Board of Trustees, thanked the crowd for making the dream of a new facility become a reality.

Assisted and Independent Living Apartments

Assisted and independent living apartments located at Avera Sacred Heart Majestic Bluffs were completed in December of 2001.  Thirty independent and 29 assisted living apartments are now available. The apartments include nine Memory Care units, single bedrooms, and 2-bedroom apartments.  The facility is connected to the new Avera Sister James Care Center.

In addition to the senior services available at Majestic Bluffs,  Avera Yankton Care Center features small neighborhoods, each with 38 or fewer residents, serving kitchen and dining space along with two lounges with fireplaces that provide an intimate living environment where residents can enjoy a beautiful bluff setting.
