Long Term Care Ombudsmen

« Previous


A long term care ombudsman is a person who helps with everything involving long term care - from finding a nursing home that meets your needs to resolving problems that arise if you are living in a long term care facility.

An ombudsman can either explain your rights and how to resolve an issue or can act on your behalf. 

All 50 states have state and local long term care ombudsman programs.  Most local programs rely on trained volunteers.

To locate the web site and phone number of your state Ombudsman program, go to : offsite link or call the Eldercare Locator at 800.677.1116.
