Area Plan

Aging & Long Term Care of Eastern Washington (ALTCEW) pursues the development of services and support systems for older adults and people in need of long-term care. To do this, ALTCEW gathers feedback, examines trends, and develops ways to meet community needs in our service area.

All Area Agencies on Aging are required to develop an Area Plan. This includes demographics, trends, budget information, available services, and much more. The plan also provides an overview of how the agency plans to prioritize services and distribute funding. This is revised every four years, and updated every two. The final plan is submitted to the Aging and Long Term Support Administration.

Prior to any Area Plan updates, Aging & Long Term Care holds public hearings to gather input on proposed changes. At these yearly hearings, ALTCEW presents the proposed budget for the following calendar year, any changes to service prioritization, and any other changes to the Area Plan.
