I had the opportunity this week to participate in the Stonehaven of Eagan Senior Living ribbon cutting. This is one of several wonderful facilities in Eagan that help to meet our growing needs for these types of services.
Supporting the lifestyle needs of an aging population is critically important. We need to assure that our community’s housing, health care, transportation, social, and other needs are met.
I support strategies to address the needs of senior citizens: providing affordable life-cycle housing options; supporting availability of needed transportation services, including improving the transportation infrastructure to promote the mobility, independence, and safety of our residents; enhancing availability of services such as health care and communications technology; and advocating for the needs of older residents. I look forward to continuing to advocate for our seniors in the future.
