Demand quality care for Kentucky's residents!
A FEW REASONS OUR OMBUDSMEN NEED YOUR SUPPORT
There are 6,900 long-term care 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 - 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.
