Caregiving - Hands
The vast majority of older Americans want to live independently at home. In order to do so, they often rely exclusively on unpaid family caregivers for help. In Minnesota, more than 670,000 family caregivers are helping their loved ones live independently – keeping them in their homes and out of costly institutions, such as nursing homes. These unsung heroes provide unpaid care valued at about $8.2 billion annually.

Geyens
Everyone loves a good story about high school sweethearts.  Bob and Rosie Geyen's story is one of those.  They met at a Waconia High School play and had their first date 50 years ago this January.  Education was one of their many shared loves.  Rosie taught 1st grade until the birth of their first child and was a substitute teacher over the years.  Bob taught and administered in several Minnesota school districts.
