Our Mission

The NJACC works to educate and support elders, families, caregivers and healthcare leaders on Culture Change in a long term care setting.

Who We Serve

  • The NJACC provides education to elders and their families about the person-centered care model to help you determine and choose the best option for yourself or your loved ones. We can help you find communities who embrace Culture Change and operate under the these concepts, providing not only quality care but quality life. There are many choices out there, we can help you sort through them all.                                                               
  • The NJACC supports caregivers who want to embrace Culture Change by providing training and resources to help them provide better care and better quality of life. We support your efforts to put the elders first eliminating task care and embracing no schedules. We support consistent care where the elder and the caregiver form long lasting, mutually rewarding relationships. We support empowering the caregiver to nurture, protect and engage the elder.

  • The NJACC supports healthcare leaders by providing training and resources to help you implement Culture Change in your community.

The NJ Alliance for Culture Change strives to transform the traditional culture of long term care practices, to one that promotes individualized care and services supporting dignity and choice for each person.
