“DEMOCRATIC-FARMER-LABOR CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR MATT ENTENZA TO VISIT SARAHCARE ADULT DAY CENTER”
Entenza will discuss senior issues at the Savage day center on July 28 at 10:30 a.m.
Minneapolis, Minn. (July 21, 2010) — According to a July 18th article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, by 2020 retirees in Minnesota will outnumber children for the first time in history. By the year 2030, projections indicated almost one in four residents would be over the age of 65.
As a result, facilities like SarahCare Adult Day Center, supporting vulnerable adults 18 years and older, will be of substantial importance. The facility is an environment where vulnerable adults can come and participate in activities such as a men’s club, tranquility room, field trips and feel a sense of purpose when they leave SarahCare. The adults can take advantage of woodworking, spending time with family and friends by our fireplace, and engage is exercise activities such as bowling.
“We want our clients to be busy and to have the chance to come to the center and participate in therapeutic programs and make new friends,” said owner Deborah Delaney.
On July 28, Entenza will tour the facilities and discuss with center participants and caregivers how his campaign will help vulnerable adults.
Some examples of Entenza’s contributions to seniors include tracking down telemarketing scam-artists who ripped off seniors. As a prosecutor, he stopped perpetrators who were stealing pensions. He also worked with AARP to create a Minnesota “Do Not Call List.” He also stood up to drug companies who take advantage of seniors by working to keep drug manufacturers from giving gifts to doctors.
He also spearheaded a plan to reduce drug prices by leveraging the state’s buying power to provide seniors with relief.
“We are excited to welcome Mr. Entenza to our facilities and we are looking forward to hearing about his ideas for seniors and for the future,” said Delaney.
Both the Dayton and Andreson Kelliher campaigns were contacted to speak at SarahCare Savage.
