Jeanette Abramowski, a resident of Bellingham, Minnesota, is supporting her mother on the aging journey. Jeanette’s mother lives independently but increasingly relies on Jeanette to help her manage her health.
For Jeanette, the most rewarding part of the aging journey with her mom is knowing her mom isn’t alone. Like many family members responsible for caring for a senior loved one, Jeanette works full time while caring for her mom, which can cause challenges as she tries to balance work and her mother’s care.
Minnesota seniors have dedicated their lives to serving our communities, and Jeanette believes it’s our turn to show our gratitude. “They deserve it. They are invested in our state,” says Jeanette.
