WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
The Leadership Coalition on Aging (LCA), sponsored by Collier Senior Resources (CSR) was established in 2012 as a means for local health and human service providers to collaborate toward enriching the lives of Collier County Seniors and their caregivers. The coalition seeks to foster a community environment that promotes well-being through resource sharing, education, advocacy and community outreach.
The coalition members are local health and human service providers who:
- Meet monthly and seek new solutions to serve seniors in our community
- Host the annual Collier County Conference on Aging
- Sponsors an Empowerment Series for seniors and caregivers with programs offered throughout the year including Alzheimer’s and dementia, death and dying (advanced directives, living wills, hospice, DNR)
- Educates local candidates on senior-related issues
In 2013, the Leadership Coalition on Aging with the support of Collier Senior Resources and other local organizations sponsored the FGCU Study on Senior Needs Assessment, and hosted the inaugural Collier County Conference on Aging. Read the full Needs Assessment Report.
