According to the MN State Demographic Center, Minnesota’s population will change significantly over the next 30 years and by 2035, more Minnesotans will be older than 65 than under the age of 18. Providing access to services, activities, and housing to older adults will need to be a focus of communities. The City of Richfield has already started to think of ways to best serve this population. A recent 50-unit addition to the Village Shores Senior Community provides elders a continuum of care from independent living to assisted living and memory care. The $20 million renovation included major upgrades to the 32-year old complex as well as a face lift to the strip mall in which it is located. Noteworthy is the new 16,000-square-foot clinic along with the farmers market that brings fresh produce and healthy eating options to residents.
