Senior citizens in La Crescent can now stay close to home when they can no longer live on their own.
Springbrook Village cut the ribbon for its assisted living complex Thursday.
The 80-unit complex includes 11 independent living, 25 assisted living, and 44 memory and advanced stage care apartments.
Officials say that allows residents to transition to different living spaces as their needs change.
They add that most importantly, seniors in La Crescent no longer need to move to assisted living facilities in La Crosse or other cities to get that kind of care.
"We had nothing here before and we need this. Nobody likes to leave town, you don't want to be told you have to leave town because you can't stay in your home anymore," said Springbrook Village partner Dale Olson.
SpringBrook Village began accepting residents in February and already has 30 apartments filled.
