Ombudsman

Long-Term Care Ombudsman

An Ombudsman is a person who is an advocate for residents living in long-term care facilities.  An Ombudsman’s role is to regularly visit and talk to residents while monitoring living conditions.  Our Ombudsmen investigate resident complaints and work with facility staff to solve or mediate problems.  They also provide education about long-term care communities and residents’ rights.  This federally-mandated advocacy service is grant funded by federal and state funds and is provided at no cost to long-term care residents, their friends and families, and the community at large.
