With the visitation limitations enacted by the Department of public health continuing to be in effect throughout Connecticut nursing homes, The Connecticut Long Term Care Ombudsman Program has started hosting regular Facebook live interactive discussions with our State Long Term Care Ombudsman Mairead Painter every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 5:30pm. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to evolve, and information continues to come out each day to help protect our most vulnerable population. The LTCOP wants to ensure that residents and families are kept abreast and fully informed throughout this pandemic. So if you reside in or have a loved one in a skilled nursing facility in Connecticut, please join along in the discussion about the current state of affairs and guidance as it pertains to skilled nursing facilities and the corona virus outbreak.
Like and follow their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CTLTCOP to ensure that you are notified each time new content is uploaded or they go live for the information sessions. If you have specific questions or concerns related to your nursing home, you can contact the Long-Term Care Ombudsman’s office toll-free at: 1-866-388-1888.
