Welcome

The Connecticut Culture Change Coalition (CTCCC) is a collection of providers, regulators, consumers, families, and long-term care stakeholders united under the common goal of improving the culture of our Connecticut nursing homes. We promote sharing stories, lessons learned, and best practices with one another so that we can improve together. This website was created to serve as a central location for housing important tools and resources that will guide you on your path to culture change. CTCCC is your partner in this rewarding journey.
