Success Stories

Jennifer, a 73 year old female who has resided in a residential care facility for the elderly since 1999, used all of her savings to pay for the care facility.  She contacted our office for help to avoid being evicted to a nursing home.  We were able to help Jennifer qualify for state and federal programs that helped to pay for her care.  In addition, we provided the care facility with the licensing regulations that stopped them from evicting her.  

An Ombudsman was visiting a nursing home and discovered that the shower rooms had open bottles of cleaning supplies on the floor.  The Ombudsman was able to work with the staff to ensure that all cleaning supplies were locked away from the reach of confused residents.
