Oregon's citizens living in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, memory care centers and adult foster care homes deserve quality care. The mission of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman is to protect individual rights, enhance quality of life, improve care, and promote dignity for residents.
Certified Ombudsmen Volunteers are official representatives of the Ombudsman Program. They provide a link between long-term care resdients and the community and inform residents and their families of their rights. Volunteer Ombudsmen objectively investigate all concerns and complaints brought to their attention, and seek solutions that best address residents' concerns.
