Championing Older Generations
Advocating for older generations is central to the work we do at Augustana Care. Board and staff members work to raise awareness of the talent, expertise and experience older people bring to our communities.
In 2011, Augustana Care was awarded the Spirit of Advocacy award for the second time by Aging Services of Minnesota. The award recognizes individuals and organizations that make outstanding contributions to advocate on behalf of older adults and the caregivers who serve them. It also honors those who have employed creative and tireless methods to energize and involve staff, boards, families, residents and the greater community in advocacy efforts.
Advocating for older generations is central to Augustana Care’s work. Augustana Care learns from older generations by listening to them so we can be better advocates for their needs.
