Identifying Gaps ~ Finding Solutions
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 goal of the LTCCC 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.
LTCCC Vision and Mission
The LTCCC works with residents, advocates, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, businesses, local governments and faith communities to reach its vision of an "inclusive, supportive community of all ages and abilities in the Fairfax area." Its mission is to identify needs and promote solutions that enhance the lives of older adults, adults with disabilities and caregivers so all can participate fully in the community.
