The Consortium provides information on the many facets of long term care to assist consumers, caregivers, health and human services providers and governmental agencies to access services for those in need.
The Albany County Long Term Care Consortium (formerly known as the Real Choices Consortium) is a collaboration of community health and human services providers and governmental agencies whose mission is to provide pertinent information on the many facets of long term care services. It is our goal that by providing this information we will increase the abilities of consumers, caregivers, health and human services providers and governmental agencies to utilize the long term care system to the fullest.
We will accomplish this by educating people in our multi-service systems on issues surrounding long term care, the key being the exchange of information with others on issues and/or problems all of us encounter when dealing each day with the people we serve.
This exchange of information will take place on two fronts:
The Consortium sponsors the Long Term Care Symposium Series covering many topics of interest relating to long term care services. Recent presentations focused on Suicide Prevention and Hoarding Behaviors and Self Neglect.
