Senior Care Commission

Published on: 7/13/2015 3:36 PM

Mission Statement

The Senior Care Commission's purpose is to be actively involved in collaborating with our county, state and federal programs and assessing existing services for seniors by identifying areas of unmet needs and finding solutions for those unmet needs, fostering programs that promote independence, good health and quality of life for persons over 60. Our three major standing committees include: community care, institutional care and the legislative committees. Through our standing committees we implement the mission by expanding community awareness and education, participating in concerns involving the quality of care or lack of it, for example, elder abuse, and by tracking current legislation and advocating for senior legislation in collaboration with our Board of Supervisors through our Children, Seniors and Families' Committee.

Meeting Schedule

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 2:00 PM at the County Government Center.
