The Face Aging Principles

These five principles provide guidance to anyone who wants to help Minnesota face aging.

#1 Care & Services

All Minnesota seniors deserve high quality care, housing and support services as they grow older.

Encourage a broad range of services that support seniors as they age and address the economic, geographic and cultural distinctions of Minnesota's senior population and their caregivers.

#3 Age In Place

We all prosper when seniors stay in their communities.
