Please give to improve the quality of care for nursing home residents.

Our ombudsmen are the voice of the voiceless. Your support keeps them at the bedsides of residents who have no visitors and no one from outside the facility checking on them.

Caring For The "Least Of These"

A FEW REASONS OUR OMBUDSMEN NEED YOUR SUPPORT

There are 5,500 nursing home residents in Central Kentucky.

  • 50 percent have Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia.
  • 60 percent have no visitors, ever, except for our ombudsmen.
  • 70 percent are impoverished, receiving $40 a month to buy shampoo, soap, snacks, and other necessities.
  • 80 percent are women.
  • $100--It's the annual cost to provide ombudsman services for 1 resident.
The number of elderly, incapacitated adults living in long-term care facilities is growing, due to the aging population and the increased need for rehabilitation services.
Your generous support enables us to keep ombudsmen at their bedsides.
