Serving Rhode Island’s Long-Term Care Community & Their Families
The Alliance works with individuals receiving long term care services to improve their environment while maintaining respect, personal dignity, and human choice.
To improve the quality of life and health care of residents of long term care facilities, assisted living facilities, and those who receive licensed health care or hospice in the home.
Individuals receiving long term care services are among the most frail and vulnerable. At times, they need help to improve their quality of life and care. Ombudsmen work to resolve these problems and effect change at the local, state, and national levels to improve quality of care.
About 50% of nursing home residents receive no visits from family or friends. They are alone and isolated while many children have no living grandparents. These youngsters are missing a precious experience which is where the Building Bridges program comes in.
