Success Stories

Frances had been living in a nursing home for one year.  Due to a stroke, she was unable to move her body and she was in bed most of the time.  Frances told her Ombudsman that another resident was coming into her room and hitting her, grabbing her arms and legs and yelling at her.  The Ombudsman was able to ensure that the facility staff protected Frances from any additional abuse.

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.
