COMMUNITY ADVISORY COMMITTEES
The very presence of informed, concerned citizens, in and around facilities, can make a critical difference and provide a force to ensure quality care for persons in long-term care facilities.
Community Advisory Committees are made up of volunteers who are passionate about protecting the rights of individuals residing in long-term care facilities in their communities. Members come from various backgrounds and do not necessarily have a “professional” insight into long-term care.
Typically, CAC members spend a minimum 8 hours per quarter fulfilling their primary responsibilities i.e., visiting long term care facilities and completion of quarterly visitation worksheets. Additionally, attendance is required at quarterly committee meetings. Initial appointment to the CAC is for a one year term. After the one year term is completed members are eligible for subsequent appointments to two or three year terms.
