Can we count on you to become part of the larger community and play a role in the future of older adult services? CARE-PAC is the political action committee (PAC) for Care Providers of Minnesota, organized to raise money and make political contributions to candidates and incumbents who support older adult services initiatives at the State Capitol.

The Long-Term Care Imperative
To be more effective at the Capitol with our legislative issues, Minnesota’s two long-term care provider associations—Care Providers of Minnesota & LeadingAge Minnesota—collaborated in 1999 to form the Long-Term Care Imperative. The goal of this legislative collaboration is to advance change in older adult services. The Imperative continues its work to educate the public, media, and Minnesota’s lawmakers on the importance of transformation and change, making sure Minnesotans receive the right care, at the right place, at the right time.



Face Aging MN

Face Aging MN is a statewide campaign to raise awareness about the issues that accompany the reality of a rapidly aging society. Our goal is to create a conversation about aging that engages families, community leaders, caregivers and legislators, a conversation that ultimately leads to a smarter and better care model for older Minnesotans.
