Preparing Minnesota for the age wave
Baby boomers are turning 65 at the rate of 10,000 per day across the nation. Are we ready for the age wave? The goals of Aging 2030 are to transform our systems and services so that we are ready for the demographic changes that have now begun.
Our vision for 2030
Minnesota is a place where all individuals live well, age well and help others in their communities to do the same.
Own Your Future
Own Your Future is a public awareness initiative sponsored by the Dayton administration, with support from the Minnesota departments of Human Services, Health and Commerce and the Minnesota Board on Aging. Own Your Future is a federal/state partnership to encourage and enable Minnesotans to create a plan for their long-term care.
A website provides information for Minnesotans who want to find out more about their risk for long-term needs. How to hold conversations with your family and others who will care for you. How to decide where to live and how to pay for long-term care cost. Also, other strategies that we all should be incorporating into our plans for our later years.
