Long-Term Care Ombudsman

Prince William Area Agency on Aging Long Term Care Ombudsman Program

Long-term care Ombudsmen are advocates for residents of nursing homes, board and care homes and assisted living facilities. Ombudsmen provide information about how to find a facility and what to do to get quality care. They are trained to resolve problems and help promote and protect residents’ rights.

Residents of Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities have rights that are guaranteed by the Federal Nursing Home Reform Law. The law requires nursing homes to “promote and protect the rights of each resident” and stresses individual dignity and self-determination.

 

These Rights include:

Right to Dignified Existence                           Right to Self-Determination

Right to be Fully Informed                              Right to Raise Grievances

Right of Access to Information                       Rights Regarding Financial Affairs

Right to Privacy                                              Rights During Discharge/Transfer
