Homemaker helps with house chores
The majority of Americans would like to remain in their own homes and communities as they age, instead of moving into a long-term care center. While for some it may be a preference, for others it may be a necessity due to expenses, logistics and other factors. Regardless of why an individual may choose to remain at home, aging-in-place can deliver its own set of challenges. Aging-in-place takes planning and may require a large network of caregivers, services, and even physical modifications to the home.

Around the state Minnesotan’s are talking with candidates about challenging issues. Critical issues like retirement security and protecting vulnerable seniors.  These issues are on the line for Minnesotans this mid-term election. While we might not always agree about what’s most important or the best solution, we do know that policy discussions and the decisions that come out of them impact all of us in different ways. That’s why AARP is proud to partner with Twin Cities Public Television on the production of Citizen Lane.
