A State Care Planning Council is a single source of community care providers and advisers who help the public deal with 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 of service. 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 by an Advisory Board Director. Directors are chosen based on their experience and their desire to serve the community. Directors coordinate the activities of Board Members and other members of the State Care Planning Council in their service area.

Strategies for Successful Aging
November 13, 2020
Aging and death are an inevitable consequence of being part of an earthly existence. But not all people are the same when it comes to aging. Some people are "old" well before their time and well before that magical and totally arbitrary age of 65. Others remain active and healthy well into their 80s and 90s. Many would argue those who age prematurely and who die early do so because of the genetic disposition that dictates the outcome. In some cases this may be true. In many cases this is not true. There are a number of factors that affect the health and longevity of aging seniors. Here are some social factors that have been shown to affect the aging process:
Level of education
Level of physical and cognitive functioning
Living arrangement such as one of high social status or living arrangement of very low social status
The council offers eldercare workshops for businesses and organizations. These workshops cover various eldercare services and can be tailored to meet your needs, from a 20 minute lunch meeting to a one hour seminar.
