In the Midwest lies South Dakota, one of the few states in America with a lot of land and not a lot of people. South Dakota is famous for its large numbers of Native Americans, specifically the Lakota and Dakota tribes, for which the state was named. The state has a small but booming economy, regularly being named in the top 10 states for business, with continuously low unemployment. Although the average state cost for long term care is lower than the national average, rural, isolated areas might experience higher costs. Either way, South Dakotans need to start planning now for their future long term care needs so they are prepared when the time comes.
