Email News Alerts

FERTILE - This is written to all Minnesota senior citizens, their families and community caregivers.

I want you to be aware of what our state government is doing to our nursing home facilities here in Minnesota.


Policies have been instituted that are placing a heavy burden on our nursing homes and are causing nursing homes to close their doors.

The state requires nursing homes to pay a surcharge of $7.80 per day for each bed, occupied or empty.
