Two Minnesota caregivers share their perspective

As professional senior caregivers, Carli Lindemann of Alexandria and Monica Scheldrup of Blackduck have dedicated their careers to enriching the lives of the seniors they serve. Along with thousands of other committed women and men working in professional senior care across the state, their hearts break over recent reports of elder abuse.

They want justice for seniors and their families. They also want seniors and their families to know that these tragic incidents do not tell the full story of caregiving in Minnesota.

“We want to be part of the conversation to ensure that all Minnesota seniors get the compassionate care and services they need to age well and with dignity,” emphasize Carli and Monica.

  1. I know what it is to be a caregiver. My wife suffered a stroke in 2014 after surgery for Peritoneal Messenteric Metsophelomia. Can’t talk, no use of her right hand or arm and about 50% use of her right leg. I take care of here at home, showers, dress her, cook ,clean help her walk with a hemi walker everything. We’re 68 years old and been married almost 47 years. I love her and would do anything to help her. One day at a time.
