Long-Term Care Ombudsman Notice

This notice's main goal is to make you aware of the crucial support that long-term care (LTC) ombudsmen provide for resident rights. They are devoted to preserving the standard of living and care for people residing in nursing homes or facilities for assisted living.

LTC ombudsmen can be either volunteers or paid employees of independent agencies, unaffiliated with any long-term care facility. Their services are provided free of charge, ensuring confidentiality and accessibility statewide.

It is important to note that the Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman operates independently from the Texas Health and Human Services system. This independence guarantees that the state ombudsman and all program representatives are dedicated advocates for resident interests. Ombudsmen diligently address individual concerns while also striving to effect policy and legal changes that protect the rights of residents.
