The Life Care Planning Law Firms Association (LCPLFA) in collaboration with The Stockton Center on Successful Aging at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey is pleased to announce another convenient and flexible training program for Elder Care Coordinators to begin in January, 2024.

This online/distance learning program is designed to provide health and social services professionals, including social workers, counselors and nurses, serving as Elder Care Coordinators within the life care planning law firm, the tools and support needed to promote best practices. Elder Care Coordinators (ECCs) help to enhance quality of life along the elder care continuum by work­ing in concert with a multidisciplinary, holistic law firm organization, other provider organizations and family caregivers.

The Certificate covers the building blocks of what ECCs do within the firm, supplies a solid foundation in the law behind life care planning and community caregiving, provides knowledge on the aging process and skills in proper/appropriate treatment and referrals. The course will enrich ECCs’ abilities to help clients and families identify care problems and assist in solving them, and provide professional recognition for their role within the community.

The Certificate in Elder Care Coordination (CECC) can be completed in 15 weeks and consists of 3 courses, each lasting 5 weeks. Offered through the online Blackboard Course Management System, instruction each week includes one or more PowerPoint Lectures/Units (some with voiceover and video clips), assigned readings, bulletin-board style discussions, additional readings and links to online resources. The program is “asynchronous” so the participant can decide when each week to log on to complete each Unit. A PC, Mac, or iPad/Tablet with Internet is required for participation. (Broadband is preferred, but not necessary).

2024 Registration Fee: $1,800.00 - $1,600 if by 5pm EST 12/15/23
