What is LTSS?
LTSS (Long Term Services & Supports) is part of the continuum of care concept which acknowledges the broad expanse of a person’s existence. All parts of the individual’s journey through life are interdependent and include their physical, mental, social, and spiritual wellbeing. NICOA’s role is to respond to the whole person and their needs and ensure that all parts of their being are addressed. Moreover, this concept embraces the American Indian approach to addressing the whole person — whether well or disabled.
