As Chairman of the Assembly Aging and Long-Term Care Committee, I have made it a priority to bring together advocates for seniors to improve long-term care financing services. To that end, the California State Assembly Committee on Aging and Long Term Care will be having an informational hearing on Long Term services and supports tomorrow in the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors Chambers 70 West Hedding Street, San Jose California from 2 to 4 pm.
Long-term services and supports encompasses the broad range of paid and unpaid medical and personal care assistance that people may need – for several weeks, months, or years – when they experience difficulty completing self-care tasks as a result of aging, chronic illness, or disability.
Do you have a story to tell? Please join us at the Hearing where we want to learn more about how these services affect you and your family. It will be an opportunity to learn about resources and for seniors to voice their concerns about long-term care. Bring your questions and concerns.
For more information, or if you have questions about participating, please call my office at (408) 277-1220.
