How to choose a long-term care facility
Choosing a long-term care facility can be one of the most difficult tasks that an individual and/ or their family may ever face. Ombudsmen for the Eastern Oklahoma Development District Area Agency on Aging can help provide you with information and resources to help you make an informed decision. The Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program advocates for residents of long-term care facilities and can also act as a resource for individuals and their families needing information regarding various aspects of long term care. A longterm care Ombudsman can help answer questions regarding how to choose and pay for long term care. They can also provide information regarding different types of facilities that are available and how to begin the process of transitioning an individual into a longterm care residence.
