Longterm care facilities continue to face challenges throughout the country. As operators struggle to make ends meet, several South Dakota communities have faced the risk of losing their local nursing homes.

In small-town Selby, neighbors are banding together to ensure their nursing home stays open for many years to come.

SDPB's Jackie Hendry visited Selby for a community meeting last night, and joined In The Moment today from the Tom and Danielle Aman Foundation Studio at Northern State University.
