Long Term Care
Long-Term Care Ombudsman
1 min read

This program provides help if you or someone you care for is in a long-term care facility. Ombudsmen can:

  • Help you choose a long-term care facility
  • Provide information about what your rights are while staying in a long-term care facility
  • Help if you or a family member have a problem in a long-term care facility

Ombudsmen make regular visits to every nursing home and personal care boarding home in the state to ensure they are following the state’s standards. Some ombudsmen are paid and some are volunteer.

How can I get help?

Contact your local Area Agency on Aging or visit the program website to find out more about long-term care ombudsman programs in your area.
