TOPIC: What’s Happening with Long Term Care and Aging Services in 2022?

If you’re a professional, caregiver, consumer, or community member with an interest in long-term care and aging services, join us at the quarterly Long Term Care Committee Meeting to learn about community & regional priorities, initiatives, and plans in 2022. Presentations will include information on: 

  • The Office for the Aging’s 2022 Plan and feedback from the community survey;
  • Age Friendly Action Plan – 2022 and beyond. Governor Hochul commits to a Master NYS Plan for Aging; 
  • Current initiatives and issues (e.g. community capacity for discharged patients, home care, advance care planning, and more)
  • What are our local and regional partners working on? (FLIC, Statewide Senior Action Council, Alzheimer’s Association of CNY) 
  • Upcoming presentations

There will be time for you to share community announcements. We will also have an open conversation to find out what you think are some of the needs for older adults or people needing long-term care related services.
