California Summit on Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS)

Strengthening Voices, Driving Change

It is a pivotal time for today’s health care and policy landscapes. California voters know that the state – as the fifth largest economy in the world – should be leading on issues of aging and long-term services and supports, not falling behind. Still, two-thirds of voters believe the state is not prepared to care for its aging population. And almost 90 percent of California voters say it is important for the state to have a master plan for aging that adopts strategies that allows all of us to age in place.
