The Kent County Commission on Aging wants to remind you that residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities have the right:
To be fully informed and participate in their own care
To voice their concerns
To privacy and confidentiality
To make their own choices
To dignity and respect
The Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program protects the rights and promotes the well-being of residents of long-term care facilities. For Information and concerns by or for a resident in long-term care, call Megan Pinder, Upper Shore Aging Ombudsman, 410-778-1182 or 443-988-1000.
