Affordable housing: a common challenge for our seniors

Cottage Grove resident Lorie Costello is walking the aging journey with her mother. Through the aging journey, Lorie has realized how valuable and important quality time is and treasures every moment she has with her mom.

The most difficult part of the aging journey with her mom is finding affordable housing. “She makes too much to qualify for senior housing, but cannot afford market rate,” explains Lorie.

“We all are or will be seniors,” says Lorie about how senior care issues will affect Minnesotans. It’s an important issue that should matter to all of us.
