Family Council

Here is where you can find information related to Family Council. A brief overview on what a family council is as quoted from the Office of Ombudsman for Long-Term Care:

 

“A Family Council operates by and for families of persons who live in nursing homes and boarding care homes. Family Council participants advocate for the well-being of their relatives by partnering with them in promoting and enhancing quality of daily life.


Residents who consider close friends or associates “family” may also participate in the family council.”
