They are trained to receive complaints and resolve problems in situations involving quality of care, use of restraints, transfer and discharge, abuse, and other aspects of resident dignity and rights.

Client Success Story

*The name in this story has been changed to protect the privacy of our client. 

  • Hank is a 68-year-old male living with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Due to his TBI, he has memory issues, severe mobility issues, and can’t drive. Despite this, Hank is very active spending his days walking around town. Hank will often forget to take necessary medications or even eat. His caregiver must call him each morning to remind him to do so. While Hank can walk to local medical appointments, his caregiver has to drive him out of town to important doctor’s appointments. Because of his caregiver’s support, Hank has been able to live a productive life, continue doing the things he loves, and walk around town.
