​Long Term Care Ombudsman

"Ombudsman” is a Swedish word meaning citizen representative.  In Pennsylvania, a Long - Term Care Ombudsman serves as a mediator who seeks to resolve complaints made by or on behalf of people who are consumers of long-term care services.  The Ombudsman provides a way for people to voice their concerns and have their complaints addressed.  The Ombudsman tries to work with all parties to resolve a problem.  Ombudsman services may be used by residents of nursing, domiciliary and personal care homes regardless of age and by individuals receiving long-term care services in their home and community

The Vision Statement for the Ombudsman Program is to ‘Advocate for those who can’t, support those who can, and ensure all long-term care consumers live with dignity and respect.’ 

To request Ombudsman Service, please contact the Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging at (717) 780-6130 or Toll Free 1-800-328-0058, Extension 6130, and ask for the Agency’s Ombudsman.
