Lisa Edstrom (University of Minnesota Center on Aging) and Marie Nelson (MinnEESI) presented yesterday to the North Suburban Senior Council on the Minnesota Elder Index. The North Suburban Senior Council has worked for a number of years to give voice to elders in the Roseville area.
Following the presentation, the North Suburban Senior Council chose to endorse the Minnesota Elder Index as a new tool to ensure that future planning and policies are based on the true costs of shelter, food, transportation and health care, so that Minnesota elders can continue to live with dignity in their own homes and communities.
Thank you for endorsing this new cost-of-living tool!
