Snohomish County Long-Term Care & Aging (LTCA) provides community leadership on issues related to aging. LTCA plans, coordinates, and advocates for the development and delivery of a range of services that help older adults meet their needs and maximize their potential.
Snohomish County Long-Term Care & Aging is the designated Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for Snohomish County. As a part of the County’s Human Services Department, LTCA is responsible for developing a comprehensive and coordinated system of services for older adults. LTCA also works to meet the needs of older adults with disabilities through home and community-based services. For more comprehensive information about LTCA, check out the Area Plan on Aging (link below).
The Snohomish County Council on Aging (COA) is a volunteer advisory board that helps guide the work of LTCA. The County Executive recommends members for three-year terms, and the Snohomish County Council confirms these appointments. COA members advise LTCA and elected officials on concerns of the County’s older population. The COA also participates in educational and advocacy efforts on behalf of older adults and adults with disabilities.
