As baby boomers reach retirement and beyond, younger generations need to think about the kinds of care their aging parents will likely need. At the Citizens League and 89.3 The Current's next Policy and a Pint® program - “How will we take care of Mom?” - they will look at how changing demographics are shaping the way we think about aging in the 21st century.

They’ll discuss how ill-prepared we are to take care of those who are rendered dependent by age or circumstance, why this is the case, and what needs to change. They’ll also look at what people in their 30s and 40s should be thinking about — from “the talk” with mom and dad, to finances, housing and care options, medical events, transportation challenges, blended family obligations, and the need to be deliberate about how we want to live during our own golden years.

Join the us and 89.3 The Current for a Policy and a Pint® at the Amsterdam Bar & Hall in Downtown St. Paul. The Current’s Steve Seel will talk with panelists Eric Schubert, Vice of President Strategic Initiatives at Ecumen, Dorothea Harris, Caregiver Support Manager at Volunteers of America, and Gayle Kvenvold, President and Chief Executive Officer of Leading Age Minnesota.
