#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.
#2 Strong Partnerships
We are all in this together.
Caring for one million seniors requires a strong partnership between our seniors, their families, their communities, professional caregivers, and the State of Minnesota.
#3 Age In Place
We all prosper when seniors stay in their communities.
State strategies should encourage the best choices for seniors who seek to age in place for as long as possible, connected to their communities and their families.
#4 Caregiving = Valued Career
Caregiving is a valued career – let’s help our professionals succeed in the jobs they love.
Professional senior care is a critically essential and profoundly rewarding career — we all benefit when senior caregivers have just compensation and opportunities for continuing education and career advancement.
#5 Bold & Innovative
With more than a million seniors, we will need to be bold and innovative.
Seek efficient ways to deliver quality care and manage costs through innovation and helping seniors age at home for as long as possible with the right support.
