Senior Advocate Fears State Cuts

The President of Aging Services of Minnesota is troubled by the Governor's proposal to limit funding of senior services. Gayle Kvenvold tells KLKS News, if the cuts are sustained, nursing homes could be closed, and seniors who currently are staying in their homes could be forced into nursing homes, which would cost the state even more. Kvenvold says most seniors can be cared for in their homes. Kvenvold says by the year 2020, there will be more seniors in Minnesota than school children.
