Questions About Resident Advocates
The federal Older Americans Act requires states to have an Ombudsman Program for complaints and to advocate for residents. These ombudsmen provide helpful information about finding a care home and how to get quality care. Another service these advocates offer is to provide assistance when you have a complaint. These matters do remain confidential unless the ombudsman has your permission to voice your concerns.
Both Generations facilities have a state appointed ombudsman. Their contact information is posted in both facilities.
