What is a Long Term Care Ombudsman?
The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is mandated by the Federal Older Americans Act to protect the health, safety, welfare, and rights of citizens residing in nursing homes, residential care homes, or assisted living communities. Ombudsmen advocate for the rights of long term care residents and monitor state and federal laws and regulations affecting the lives of those residents.
