Long-Term Care Ombudsman Service Locations

"This dataset contains locations of Long-Term Care Ombudsman offices. The Indiana Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program advocates for residents of long-term care facilities, which includes nursing facilities and licensed assisted living facilities. Our primary purpose is to promote and protect the Resident Rights guaranteed to residents under federal and state law. We are resident-directed.

We achieve this mission with a network of local offices across the state, which recruit, train and manage a corps of certified ombudsmen. Staff and volunteer ombudsmen visit facilities throughout the state to ensure residents’ rights are being upheld. Certified long-term care ombudsmen are trained to receive complaints and assist residents to resolve problems in situations involving quality of care, use of chemical or physical restraints, transfer and discharge, abuse and other aspects of resident rights."
