Empowering, Educating, & Cultivating Communities Where Our Vulnerable Seniors Can Age with Justice, Dignity, & Respect.
Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano, and Alameda is an ever-growing agency currently with three distinct programs that focus on empowering aging adults.
1) The Ombudsman Services Program: Investigates allegations of abuse and neglect of elderly and dependent residents currently living in Long-Term Care Facilities in Contra Costa, Alameda, and Solano Counties.
2) The Elder and Dependent Adult Justice Program: Serve victims of crime who are community-dwelling adults ages 65+ or dependent adults ages 18-64 with mental and/or physical disabilities that require assistance from others for normal activities, safety, and protection.
3) The Friendly Visitor and Telephone Reassurance Program (FV/TR): Offers Companionship, Friendship, and Support to adults 60+ who are at HIGH RISK for social isolation and loneliness.
We believe aging is a natural phase of life, deserving of respect and dignity. Every day we empower, educate, and partner with older and dependent adults to best meet their unique needs - from providing opportunities to stay connected to the activities they love to ensure they are free from neglect and abuse. Because when our elders thrive, we all benefit from their unique contributions and collective wisdom.
