On Saturday, May 19, the Minnesota House and Senate passed legislation strengthening protections for older and vulnerable adults in long-term care residential facilities. Currently the only state to not license assisted living facilities, Minnesota's Department of Health receives approximately 400 cases of abuse and neglect every week. The bill passed earlier this week (HF90/SF8) seeks to address this critical problem.
This week, AARP and consumer advocates claimed victory after coming to consensus with the long-term care industry on a bill to prevent elder abuse. More than two years ago, a Star Tribune series, Left to Suffer, unveiled a broken regulatory system that left many older and vulnerable adults at risk for abuse and neglect. Minnesota is the only state in the country that does not license assisted living facilities. Reports of elder abuse, uncovered more than 2 years ago, continue with the Minnesota Department of Health receiving approximately 400 cases of abuse and neglect every week.
AARP successfully completed the Spring ON TAP schedule with events at Invictus, Broken Clock, and St Paul Brewing. Almost 100 people attended each of these events with food and cash collected and donated to local food shelves. See below for more information and pictures of the Spring events.
