We are thrilled to announce a new website that the National Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) has created specifically for tribal long-term services and supports (LTSS). NICOA’s LTSS Compass is now live. We invite you to view the new website and let us know your thoughts.
LTSS are an entire range of services including, but not limited to, chore services, home delivered meals, senior centers, transportation, caregivers, legal services, guardianships, home health services, elder protection programs, intergenerational programs, assisted living, long term care facilities and many others. Coordinating these services in a manner that meets reimbursement requirements from funding sources such as Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran’s Administration and private insurance, can be complicated and time-consuming.
Our goal with this website is to provide tribal leaders and community members an easier way to learn about long-term services and supports and find resources based on their location. You can use the website to find information on aging in place, policies and program examples, learn how to both plan for and pay for your care, find services near you, and more.
We endeavor to provide tribal leaders and community members with the most accurate, up-to-date information and to share our knowledge and expertise in the field of aging. The website offers user-friendly navigation, a responsive design, and an abundance of aging information.
To assess the site’s usability, we are asking that you fill out this quick 10-question survey. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please send them our way.
