Connecticut Long Term Care Ombudsman Program Launches New Website

The Long Term Care Ombudsman program works to improve the quality of life and quality of care of Connecticut citizens residing in nursing homes, residential care homes and assisted living communities.

The LTCOP responds to, and investigates complaints brought forward by residents, family members, and/or  other individuals acting on their behalf.  Ombudsmen offer information on consultation to consumers and providers, monitor state and federal laws and regulations, and make recommendations for improvement.  The program also recruits, trains, and  supervises Volunteer Resident Advocates who assist residents in resolving concerns.

The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program has historically been a great resource for residents and families of individuals who reside in long term care settings and The Elder Justice Coalition is happy to announce that The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program (LTCOP) has launched it’s new website. http://www.portal.ct.gov/ltcop. With a wealth of information already on the site, it should continue to be a great resource for individuals who have questions about their rights as residents of long term care settings.
