NY Connects Niagara County...Choices for Long Term Care

Long Term Care Advisory Council

The NY Connects Niagara County Long Term Care Advisory Council was formed in September 2007 and is comprised of 35 individuals and professionals representing a wide array of agencies and programs that serve the aging and disabled populations of Niagara County. The Long Term Care Advisory Council membership includes residential and comprehensive care service professionals, in-home and inpatient health care services staff, educational and social service workers and community members comprised of caregivers and clients of services.

New York State offered the option to include developmentally disabled services and the Council, at its inception, made the determination that long term care services for the disabled cover the lifespan from birth to death, and thus has included services to this population in the scope of its work. 

It is the mission of the Long Term Care Advisory Council of Niagara County to objectively consider and evaluate the needs of Niagara County residents who are seeking long term care and assistance. The Council identifies gaps in the current service delivery system and makes recommendations to the NY Connects Niagara County Long Term Care Coordinator, related to program development and service implementation, to best meet the needs of the aging and disabled populations in Niagara County.

Through collective vision and collaboration, the NY Connects Niagara County Long Term Care Advisory Council has adopted, embraces and actively promotes its mission statement.

The Strategic plan and gap analysis for Long term Care Services summarizes the results of the 2009 Long Term Care survey developed and conducted by the NY Connects Niagara County Long Term Care Advisory Council. The report includes data collected from a cross section of the variety of groups served by long term care services in Niagara County, reflects the diversity of needs being addressed by the long term care system currently in place and includes recommendations for future planning.
