Aging and Adult-Dependent Care Committee


The NIH Aging and Adult-Dependent Care Committee (AADCC), will research, promote and recommend effective actions to meet the aging and adult-dependent care needs of the diverse NIH workforce. The AADCC will advise the NIH Leadership on targeted programs and policies to support the productivity and performance of employees with adult-dependent care responsibilities, and an aging workforce. Employer-sponsored resources and support systems related to adult dependent care and an aging workforce are effective components of recruiting and retaining a skilled dedicated workforce.

How to Become A Member

The Aging and Adult-Dependent Care Committee (AADCC) seeks interested NIH employees to serve as voting members of the AADCC. Applications are considered on a rolling basis.

The AADCC advises the NIH Leadership with regard to aging and adult-dependent care needs.  Members serve for a three-year term and are required to attend quarterly and subcommittee meetings each calendar year.  Participation on the AADCC is an official duty, requires supervisor approval, and may be included as a non-critical element on an employee's performance plan.

If you are interested in aging and adult dependent care as a work-life issue at the NIH, please consider this opportunity to make a difference!
