Lieutenant governor addresses long-term care crunch

Email

While nothing will completely ease the pain of someone who’s lost a loved one, having a plan in advance helps. That’s the contention of Minnesota Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon, who is working to encourage Minnesotans to make long-term care plans for themselves and their families.

Solon, 66, lost her husband, then-Sen. Sam Solon, DFL-Duluth, 11 years ago after he was diagnosed with cancer and died a few months later.
