Description:

The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program provides advocacy services to persons age 60 and older who are consumers of Wisconsin long term care programs. The Ombudsman Program has, by law, the authority to have contact with any resident or tenant of a Wisconsin nursing home, Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF), Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC), Adult Family Home (AFH), or person served by the community Options Program or the Family Care/Partnership/PACE program.

Nineteen dedicated and skilled Ombudsmen serve residents of all of Wisconsin's 72 counties. Services are available at no charge, and all complaints are kept confidential, as per the direction of the individual voicing the concern.

The services an Ombudsman offers are many and varied. Some of the services included are:

Complaint investigation (complaint form) regarding long-term care services
Resolve and mediate issues regarding long-term care services
Provide information and education on resident rights, restraints, and abuse reporting and prevention
Work with Community Options Program (COP) participants
Work with Family Care/Partnership members
Assist with Choosing a Nursing Home or Assisted Living Facility
Work with enforcement agencies

The Ombudsman Program has offices located throughout the state. Your regional Ombudsman can be reached by calling our confidential, toll-free line at 1-800-815-0015.
