Abstract

The State Long-Term Care Ombudsman program operates as a unit within the Office of Elder Rights at Iowa Department of Elder Affairs. Duties of all long-term care ombudsmen are mandated by the Older Americans Act. This office serves people living in nursing facilities, residential care facilities, elder group homes and assisted living programs. With the addition of 2 ombudsmen, regional offices were closed and 7 local programs were established in 2007. Local long-term care ombudsmen are becoming more aware of issues that need to be addressed, yet as evidenced by the tables included in this report, the increase in work load has been phenomenal, and is reaching the point of being unmanageable with the current staff.
