Description:The commission is a 21-member group of volunteers that advises the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors and the Aging and Adult Services Division on issues concerning older adults (age 60 or over). The public is invited to attend the monthly general meetings of the Commission on Aging, as well as to participate on its standing committees. - The Community-based Continuum of Care serves as a planning, advocacy and information-sharing committee on a variety of long-term care programs designed to maximize the independence of older adults and adults with disabilities. - The Legislative/Advocacy Committee reviews pending legislation and advocates on behalf of older adults. - The Minority Elders Committee develops strategies and activities to increase effective communication, reduce barriers to specific services and enhance responsiveness of services to San Mateo County's diverse population of older adults. - The Nutrition Committee provides a focal point for the discussion of nutrition-related issues. In addition to receiving consumer input, the committee assists in fundraising and educating consumers about nutrition issues. - The Housing Committee is a joint committee of the Commission on Aging and the Commission on Disabilities which promotes both affordable and accessible housing opportunities for older adults and people with disabilities. In addition to its standing committees, the Commission on Aging may establish ad hoc committees or task forces to address emergent issues not covered by its standing committees. It also establishes liaison relationships with a number other committees and task forces in the County that work on issues of concern for older adults.
