For a long time, senior care advocates, lawmakers and the media talked about the Age Wave as something that was “on the horizon” – somewhere out in the future.

Today, that wave of growing demand is on our front door step, and it’s time to ask a key question: Is Minnesota ready?

The second (here is the first) in a series of infographics from the Long-Term Care Imperative focuses on the demographic and economic realities we face, and how Minnesotans feel about specific proposals to help the state – and individuals – prepare for the future.

There is no single, magic way to prepare Minnesota for the changing needs of an aging population. We will need government, individuals, families, senior care providers, caregivers and entire communities to work together.

The Age Wave isn’t coming to Minnesota – it’s here.
