The Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program at ABLE works to uphold the rights of people who receive long-term care by investigating and resolving complaints about long-term care ranging from admission and discharge problems to abuse, neglect and violations of civil rights.

Ohio Department of Aging

www.aging.ohio.gov

The department serves more than two million older Ohioans. We help mature adults live active, healthy and independent lives through programs like our well-known Golden Buckeye Card and healthy aging initiatives. We promote positive attitudes toward aging and older people through outreach, volunteer programs and other efforts. We also provide home and community-based services that help frail individuals remain in their own homes and support consumers of long-term care. We work in conjunction with other state agencies, Ohio's 12 area agencies on aging and the county/municipal agencies on aging, senior centers, services providers and hundreds of other organizations and individuals that make up Ohio's aging network.
