The Arlington County Commission on Long-Term Care Residences advises the Arlington County Board and the Arlington Agency on Aging on issues related to long-term care residences in Arlington. The Commission is a council composed of 15 voting members who live or work in Arlington, are appointed by the County Board, and elect their own officers. Ex-officio (non-voting) members include a representative from the Arlington Commission on Aging and one from the Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman program. Members serve on a citizens’ advisory council and may also act as liaisons to local, regional, and state organizations.
A term of service is 3 years, with two consecutive terms allowed. Prospective members are interviewed by current Commission members and recommended to the Arlington County Board, which makes the appointments. Each year at the end of April, approximately one-third of the Commission members’ terms will expire. Some are eligible for reappointment. In February and March, the Commission recruits and interviews replacements for persons not being re-appointed. If any member resigns during the year, the Commission will begin the process to fill the vacancy at that time.
The Commission hopes that you will find your talents, interests, and expertise suitable for working with us to help make Arlington’s long-term care residences high-quality places for older Arlington residents to live and receive care. Applications may be submitted at any time and will be held for consideration until the next opening occurs.
