Family Council

back button
Family members in a nursing home can join together to form a united consumer voice which can communicate concerns to facility administrators and work for resolutions and improvements by forming a family council. Family councils can play a crucial role in voicing concerns, requesting improvements, supporting new family members and residents, and supporting facility efforts to make care and life in the facility the best it can be.

Join and support the family council at your loved one's facility! If no family council exists,contact your local ombudsman for assistance in joining other family members to form one.
