The owners of Diamond K Lodge Assisted Living in Livingston have recently placed the facility on the market to be sold. 

Susan Clark, who owns the facility with her husband, John, said they want to sell the property so they can “totally retire.” 

For the past four years, Clark’s daughter, Angie Printze, has been operating the facility. 

Although COVID-19 has had an impact on assisted living facilities around the country, this decision has no relation to the virus, as the property has been listed for sale for about six to eight months, Clark said.

If not for the virus, the lodge would still be taking new residents, but the virus has prevented them from accepting them and also stopped visitors and family members from being able to visit the facility, Clark explained.

Clark said they are always watching for things that could get residents sick.

“We always worry about the flu and other things getting into our facility,” she said.

Upon sale of the property, the new owner could choose to discontinue the assisted care facility. If that is the case, Clark said the residents would have time to find a new home.

“If it does sell and doesn’t sell as an assisted living (center), our residents would have 60 days to find a new place.”

Clark said they would help any residents in need of relocation.
