"Enhancing the Quality of Life and the Quality of Services for Adults Through Advocacy, Education and Empowerment"
A program of the Minnesota Board on Aging, the Office advocates for person-directed living, throughout the health care continuum, which respects individual values and preferences and preserves individual rights.
Regional ombudsmen and volunteers, work with consumers, citizens, nursing homes, hospitals, home care and social service agencies and public agencies to enhance the quality of life and services for individuals receiving health care and supportive services at home, in hospitals, in nursing homes and boarding care homes, and in other community settings such as housing with services (assisted living, customized living), adult foster care and adult day centers.
The Office also works to enhance the quality of life and services for consumers by advocating for reform in the health care and social services delivery systems through changes in state and federal law and administrative policy.
