Minnesota State Representative Diane Loeffler

Seniors

"Growing old is tough. It doesn't have to be made tougher by incredibly high prices for needed drugs, a shrinking bus system, and a complex and confusing system of public programs."
Diane Loeffler

Diane will work for:

  • Helping seniors make the right choices in accessing the new federal Medicare Drug benefit.
  • Continuing support for home care.
  • An improved system of options when home care isn't enough.
  • Enabling seniors to comparison shop in senior housing through standardized care and service definitions.
  • Consumer protections in housing contracts and operating expectations.
  • Developing system navigation and advocacy support so every senior has needed assistance and oversight of their care.
  • Addressing workforce shortages in senior care.
  • Sufficient funding for Metro Transit and our bus system.
