The Kenosha County Caregiver Coalition is sponsoring a presentation by Rachel Selking, Long Term Care Ombudsman Supervisor with the State of Wisconsin Board on Aging and Long Term Care to share information about the state ombudsman program.
A long-term care ombudsman works with residents and their families to promote and protect the rights of long term care consumers, helping them to achieve their expected quality of care and quality of life.
Ms. Selking will discuss:
- How families can best address concerns of their loved ones living in facilities
- How to successfully express concerns
- What to expect of the Ombudsman program
The presentation will be held Thursday, Nov. 8, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Kenosha County Job Center, 8600 Sheridan Road, Room N2 (use entrance A).
Reservations are preferred. For more information or to register, contact the Aging & Disability Resource Center at 262-605-6646.
