California Congressman Recognized for Funding of the State Ombudsman Program

A congressman in California has been recognized by a senior advocacy group for authoring legislation providing extra funding for the state ombudsman program.  North Carolina also has a State Ombudsman program which many people do not even know exists.  The program provides each county with a person, known as an ombudsman, whose job is to serve as a resource for people in nursing homes, and their families.  If a family has a problem that needs addressing, they can call their local ombudsman who can then serve as a mediator of sorts to help the family communicate their concerns to the facility, and to work towards a resolution.  For the full text of the California article, please click on the following link:  http://www.californiachronicle.com/articles/view/114796
