about State Care Planning Council Advisory Boards

A State Care Planning Council is a single source of community care providers and advisers who help the public deal with current eldercare needs. State councils provide a platform for local groups of providers and advisors to offer the following services:

• Educate the public on how to plan for long term care
• Provide a local source of 15 to 20 different eldercare services through one single state contact
• Promote a recognized name offering reliable services

State Council Advisory Boards provide oversight and management of State Care Planning Council members in selected geographic areas. Each Board represents a spectrum of eldercare advisors or providers who are experts in their particular area. A board is composed of companies or individuals representing anywhere from 8 to 20 specific areas of eldercare services. The number of specialties on an Advisory Board is dictated by the needs of the community in the geographic area the Advisory Board serves.

Each Advisory Board is supervised and board activities are coordinated through an Advisory Board Director. Directors are chosen based on their experience and their desire to serve the community by coordinating the activities of board members and other members of the State Care Planning Council.
