"I have a mom who has dementia. This is why I’m really drawn to taking care of our seniors,” said SilverCreek on Main Registered Nurse and Director of Home Care Gladys Aakre said.  

SilverCreek on Main, located at 8200 Main Street North, is a senior living community community. As a professional caregiver, Aakre shared her journey as a professional caregiver with Face Aging MN, a public campaign working to raise awareness about the issues of an aging society. 

By 2025, one in four Minnesota adults will be age 65 or older, according to Face Aging MN.

“I know that the seniors here deserve to be treated with dignity just like my mom’s caregiver is treating her,” Aakre said, in the campaign

Face Aging MN seeks to demonstrate the work of professional caregivers through the interactive map – and "inspire positive change."
