Direct Care Workers Proclamation a Success In Fairfax County!
On June 18 over 100 direct care workers, senior-serving professionals and politicians gathered for the Direct Care Worker Proclamation and Reception at the Fairfax County Government Center. The event was sponsored by the Fairfax Long Term Care Coordinating Council (LTCCC)
with support from a variety of other community organizations. The event is designed to celebrate the great service that direct care workers provide and bring awareness to law makers on the future needs of this important group of individuals.
The reception featured presentations from Karen Brown, Chair of the Fairfax Long Term Care Coordinating Council (LTCCC), Dana Kauffman, Lee District Supervisor, and an inspirational presentation from George Edwards a direct care worker with The Arc of Nothern Virginia.
