Florida’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program needs volunteers to join its corps of dedicated advocates who protect the rights of elders who live in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult family care homes.
The Pasco and North Pinellas Long-Term Care Ombudsman Council is a part of Florida’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program. The council is made up of local ombudsmen whose goal is to improve the quality of life and care of residents of long-term care facilities, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult family-care homes. An ombudsman is a specially trained and certified volunteer who has been given authority under federal and state law to identify, investigate and resolve complaints made by, or on behalf of, long-term care facility residents. The Pasco and North Pinellas Long-Term Care Ombudsman Council serves Pasco and North Pinellas counties.
