Coalition on aging issues hears from new director
Dec 14

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) _ A coalition focused on aging issues in New Hampshire is learning more about a new state office dedicated to the same issue.

The Department of Health and Human Services recently created the Division of Long Term Supports and Services in recognition of the state's demographics and the reality that people with developmental disabilities are living longer and children are born with chronic health conditions that will last into adulthood.

New Hampshire has the nation's second-oldest population in terms of median age.

The goal is to ensure comprehensive and coordinated services throughout a person's life.

On Thursday, the division's director, Christine Santaniello, will be speaking at the quarterly meeting of the New Hampshire Alliance for Healthy Aging.
