We are shocked that legislators went home without using the $9 billion budget surplus to ensure access to care for Minnesota's seniors. But there's still a way for lawmakers to make it right! Gov. Walz can call a special session, and they can finish their work!
We need to make sure he knows just how critical it is to send relief! Contact Gov. Walz TODAY! Ask him to call a special session and support the Senate's proposal to pay caregivers the wages they deserve and ensure access to care.
Hello again! I hope you have been out and about walking in nature or out by the lake or even in your own backyard enjoying the warm weather.

Sometimes we all get in a hurry and are focused on the task that needs to be done next and forget to follow some of these safe swallowing/feeding strategies. Please read through them as a helpful reminder for all of us. I also wanted to send out a BIG thank you to all of the staff who come forward to let me know when one of our residents is having increased difficulty with their swallowing and/or speech and cognition. Have a great summer!!! Cathy Jylha, SLP ... See MoreSee Less
