The Long Term Care (LTC) Committee of the Health Planning Council meets quarterly. Membership includes consumers, caregivers, health care professionals, health care organizations, residential facilities, advocacy groups, local government departments, educational institutions, community agencies, aging and human service providers, and providers of long term care services.
The LTC Committee is the designated Long Term Care Council for Tompkins County and New York Connects and as such plays a vital role in the local planning process that identifies needs of its aging residents, people with disabilities, and people with long term care needs.
In addition, the LTC Committee:
- Monitors the impact of system and regulatory changes
- Facilitates activities that improve coordination of care
- Implements actions as guided by local plans
The work of the LTC Committee is conducted through smaller ad hoc work groups. If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact Carolyn Beyers (firstname.lastname@example.org)
