ORGANIZATION: Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 26 people are interested
Heart of Ohio

COVID has put a spot-light on Nursing Homes. Those living in Nursing Homes have been the most vulnerable to this insidious infection. Help us reach out to them. Advocate from the safety of your own home. During the COVID pandemic we are calling residents and using virtual venues for our "visits". Join us and help to ensure the rights of all residents!

Aging is everybody's business! Over 60% of people living in nursing homes do not have any family or friends visit them... this is why our job is so important! We act as advocates and speak on behalf of the residents. Residents have rights and deserve to expect excellence in their care!

The Ombudsman Program may be reached by phone at (800) 395-8267 or (937) 223-4613. We work with individuals receiving long-term care and nursing home residents in Montgomery, Preble, Greene, Clark, Miami, Darke, Logan, Shelby, and Champaign Counties.
