Identifying Gaps ~ Finding Solutions
Did you know?
- 60,000 Fairfax County residents are 70 years of age or older
- More than 112,000 residents live with one or more disability
- These populations are expected to increase significantly by 2020
The Long Term Care Coordinating Council’s (LTCCC) vision is "Building Inclusive Communities" and its mission is to provide leadership to promote caring, inclusive and supportive communities for all.
To address the long term care needs of a growing population, the Board of Supervisors chartered the Long Term Care Coordinating Council (LTCCC) in 2002 to identify needs and create solutions for long term care services and programs that enhance the lives of older adults and people with disabilities.
The LTCCC includes residents, advocates, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, businesses, local governments and faith communities.
The LTCCC supports inclusive communities of healthy individuals, stable families and connected residents in the Fairfax area by:
- Raising awareness of long term care needs in the areas of transportation & mobility, housing, and services for seniors and adults with disabilities
- Educating funders and policymakers
- Developing community collaboration and partnerships
- Advocating for solutions in the community
- Encouraging contributions of money and time to nonprofit service providers
The goal of the Council is to provide a foundation so that Fairfax area residents are able to remain in their own community as they age or live with their disability and be able to participate in community life to the fullest.
In an effort to meet the Long Term Care needs of the community, the Council's strategic plan organizes priority needs into five service areas:
1. Coordination of Medical and Social Services
3. Mobility and Transportation
4. Services for Older Adults
5. Services for Young Adults with Disabilities
