The Kentucky Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program prepared these guides to help you and your loved ones be aware of your rights. Residents’ Rights place a strong emphasis on individual dignity and self-determination. It is easier to exercise your rights for a better long-term care experience if you are knowledgeable and empowered.
Below are guides to your rights. Each guide is written specifically for a certain level of care, from nursing home to personal care and family care homes.
