This week, SDPB Radio and AARP of South Dakota are teaming up to look at issues facing elderly South Dakotans. Today, seniors in two communities share what they think about healthcare, retirement, and the future.
The lunch crowd is fairly small at the Senior Citizen’s Center in Waubay. Jenny Bisgard serves the meals here, and she says there’s a reason for the fairly low attendance these days.
“More people don’t like to eat, because it’s not a thing to go to the old people’s home, as they say,” Bisgard says.
