It’s important to care about what elders face

The best part of aging is retirement, says Jodi Gohmann. Jodi lives in the 1,700-person community of Clearwater.

Jodi says she wishes people knew that it’s difficult to give up things like independence with age. Another challenging aspect of getting older for Jodi is sometimes feeling patronized, particularly in the way younger people regard her.

As the baby boomers age, Jodi points out that there will be many more elders in Minnesota and it’s important to understand and care about what they are facing.
