Caring For Our Residents
A FEW REASONS OUR OMBUDSMEN NEED YOUR SUPPORT
There are 5,600 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 clothes and other needs.
- 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.
