Long Term Care Consortium
About the Long Term Care Council (LTCC)
The Albany County Long Term Care Council (LTCC) was formed in January 2007, in response to a State requirement associated with the establishment of a County Long Term Care Point of Entry. Membership includes representatives from various consumer subgroups, community-based and residential long term care providers and advocacy groups.
The Long Term Care Council has been charged with analyzing the long term care service delivery system within Albany County, identifying gaps in service accessibility and availability, recommending strategies to address identified needs and barriers, and advising the Albany County Departments of Social Services and Aging on matters related to the Long Term Care Point of Entry (POE). The primary roles defined for the LTCC are as follows.
Identify and analyze emerging community needs in the long term care service delivery system, based on identified gaps and barriers, service accessibility and availability, and develop strategies to respond to those needs in a timely and appropriate fashion.
