Placement Agencies

Finding the right long term care setting can be overwhelming as the choices are extensive and the care options varying. Placement Agencies provide assistance with helping you find the right level of care and actual location as well as assist in the negotiation of price and contract. This is usually a free service and they are paid a “finder’s fee” by the location you select. Resources can be found at the Professional Association of Senior Referral Specialists. For more information on Long Term Care please see Long Term Care.


Ombudsman

An Ombudsman is a trained professional who can be brought in to resolve conflict, advocate for, or act as a liaison for those living in long term care. The ombudsman program offers those living in long term care the opportunity to voice their concerns and have those concerns resolved.
