Long-Term Care Ombudsman

A long-term care ombudsman is a trained advocate who protects and promotes the rights and quality of life for people who reside in nursing homes, assisted living residences, and similar licensed lon-term care facilities.  Ombudsmen work to resolve individual resident issues and to bring about changes at the local, state, and national level to improve long-term care.  They regularly visit long-term care facilities, monitor conditions and care, and provide a voice for those unable to speak for themselves.
