Legislative luncheon on elder issues

Upper Michigan lawmakers and their representatives were focused on issues that concern the elderly today.

The third annual Legislative Luncheon was held at the Negaunee Senior Center this afternoon.

The Marquette Senior Provider Network is working to keep issues about seniors top of mind for the legislators.

A major concern in the community right now is funding for services that help seniors remain in their homes, as opposed to moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility.
