August 2018 Forum – “MN2030 Looking Forward”, a Community Conversation

A Community Conversation to Build on a Strong Foundation of Long Term Services & Supports, to Age Well and Live Well in MN


SHIFT is hosting and inviting our members and the community to be part of this important conversation.

On behalf of the Minnesota Board on Aging (MBA), in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) we are requesting your input to inform how older Minnesotans age well, live well. The year 2030 was marked as an important milestone because that is the year baby boomers start to turn 85 years old. We want to make it possible for people to age in their community for as long as possible.  And, with that cornerstone in mind, we are planning our multi-year commitment to prepare for a permanently older state.

Please join us for a MN2030 Looking Forward community conversation to build on a strong foundation of Long Term Services and Supports in Minnesota and share ideas to improve quality and access to services and fully prepare our communities for 2030.
