Our passion for assisted living shines through everyday at StoneyBrook Suites. It is our goal to be more than just a retirement center. We want to ensure your loved ones feel at home with a listening ear, a caring embrace, and an overall sense of community. The sculpture, known as the Inukshuk, found outside of each of our facilities symbolizes the message that “You are on the right path” and that life is an “Endless Journey.”

A New Administrator in Dakota Dunes
StoneyBrook Suites is an assisted living facility with five locally owned locations in South Dakota. We are proud to announce Angie Lewis R.N. B.S., as the new Administrator at our Dakota Dunes facility. Born and raised in the Siouxland area, Angie grew up near the Dakota Dunes community. Angie and her husband Sage, along with their two children, John (10) and Jenna (8) reside in Sergeant Bluff. Sage is a deputy sheriff for Woodbury County. Angie is a Registered Nurse, receiving her degree from Western Iowa Tech Community College. Upon receiving that accomplishment, she went on to obtain her B.S. in Healthcare Management from Bellevue University. After schooling, Angie was the Education & Special Projects Coordinator, along with being an R.N., at Sunrise Community for over eight years. Being a lead RN at Siouxland Community Health Center, her most recent experience has given her extraordinary leadership skills, problem-solving abilities and hands on medical experience that will be more than valuable for StoneyBrook Suites. Angie is also a CPR & AED Healthcare Provider for the American Heart Association. With her background in nursing, leadership and healthcare, we are confident that Angie will be a great asset to the StoneyBrook Suites leadership team. Angie is excited for this new opportunity to be a part of the current and future success of StoneyBrook Suites. She is happy to join a great team and anxious to meet the residents and their families in Dakota Dunes.
StoneyBrook Suites Assisted Living is proud to announce their involvement with Build Dakota Scholarship and Lake Area Technical Institute. They have awarded a local individual a scholarship towards her upcoming enrollment in the Practical Nursing program at Lake Area Technical Institute. Regan Schoon, from Great Plains Lutheran, has spent countless hours shadowing at Prairie Lakes Hospital that led her to her passion of pursuing the nursing field. Highway cleaning, prom committee and helping the disabled through Jesus Cares, are just a few of her involvements in high school. Regan embodies the passion, drive and commitment that mirrors the same attributes of the culture that is StoneyBrook Suites. With StoneyBrook’s five locations, they have full and part-time nursing that get to know their residents one-on-one. Their nurses are an integral part and what makes their facilities run. StoneyBrook is anxious to watch Regan grow with her degree and will welcome her onboard their team upon college graduation.

“To foster the well-being of each resident by nurturing the mind, body, and spirit while maintaining each resident’s enjoyment of independence and dignity in a secure and supportive environment. We invite you to come to StoneyBrook Suites, where our joy is in serving you.”
We’re all on life’s long journey, and for many of us it gets tougher and more unsure as we get closer to the end. Many of us will seek spiritual guidance and reassurance just as the Inuit people sought from each inukshuk. These stone people were placed and built as way-finding objects and spiritual booster shots.
The traditional meaning of the inukshuk itself is “Someone was here” or “You are on the right path” or “Someone has gone before.” But there are other, more sacred intentions as well. One may mark a place of respect, or mark a memory of a loved one, or even lead people to food and shelter. Many become so venerated that destruction of any inukshuk is forbidden by Inuit tradition.
Inukshuks aren’t about the end of the trail. They’re all about the journey. A favorite inukshuk is a welcome sight to a traveler on an unfamiliar and forbidding path. My hope for the StoneyBrook Inukshuks is to symbolize the need for physical direction as well as spiritual guidance. Sometimes we have a rough road. We need to hear and see that, “Someone has gone before us. It will be ok.”
