Long-term care (LTC) ombudsmen are advocates for residents' rights. They help protect the quality of life and quality of care of anybody who lives in a nursing facility or an assisted living facility. If you have concerns about the care of a nursing facility or assisted living resident, talk to the LTC ombudsman in your area.
The Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman is independent of the Texas Health and Human Services system. This ensures the state ombudsman and all program representatives advocate for resident interests. Ombudsmen work to solve individual problems and to change policy and law to protect residents.
