Aging is something we have in common, no matter what age we are right now. Being part of a community, feeling safe, maintaining health and mobility – these are expectations that most of us have as we age. The Senior Services Coalition is working together to shape public policy for today, and for a future in which every fifth person you meet will be over 65.
Our new Senior Services Coalition web site is not for members only! It’s for all senior serving organizations, for policy makers, and other Alameda County stakeholders who care about seniors. It is designed to help you learn about the issues and get involved in advocacy and policy change. The first step to getting involved is to subscribe to our Action Alerts and updates (fill out the subscribe box on the right). If you have questions or suggestions about content, features or other aspects of this site, please feel free to contact us.
Driven by the Coordinated Care Initiative and health care reform, the familiar landscape of Long Term Services and Supports that we’ve known for years is changing. How will providers of health and supportive services adapt to this new landscape? Check out our new Changing Landscape page, where we explore this question and take note of organizations that are breaking new ground.
