Face Aging MN is announcing the first of five Face Aging Principles, which provide guidance for anyone who wants to help Minnesota seniors age well, with the care and services they need. With 60,000 Minnesotans turning 65 this year and every year through 2030, we must act now.
This week, Face Aging MN is focusing on Principle 1: All Minnesota seniors deserve high quality care, housing and support services as they grow older. We need to 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.
We invite you to watch our video on Principle 1, where we hear from seniors Marleen and Tony and caregiver Debi in Roseville, Minnesota.
Seniors are the fastest growing segment of Minnesota’s population. Senior care and service issues matter to them, their families and their caregivers.
“It just was time to move, before we had to,” Marleen says about she and her husband’s decision to move to a senior community with a range of services and care. “I think that’s really important.”
