Grant to a Suffolk County, New York non-profit or public agency to provide a multifunctional web-based system that will consolidate and replace multiple systems used in every County statewide. The selected agency will oversee and administer a system that assists people who live in nursing homes, adult homes, and other licensed residential care facilities.
The New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) and the NYS Office of the Long Term Care Ombudsman (LTCOP) seek to designate a local sponsor in Suffolk County, New York to oversee and administer the Suffolk County Long Term Care Ombudsman Program.
LTCOP serves as an advocate and resource for persons who live in nursing homes, adult homes, and other licensed residential care facilities. Ombudsmen help residents and their families understand and exercise their rights to quality of care and quality of life.
The program promotes and protects residents' health, safety, welfare, and rights by: receiving, investigating, and resolving complaints made by or on behalf of residents; by supporting resident and family councils; and by informing governmental agencies, providers, and the general public about issues and concerns impacting residents of long-term care facilities.
The primary activities of the ombudsman program include:
-Investigating and resolving long-term care facility residents' complaints;
-Providing services to help protect resident's health, safety, welfare and rights;
-Assuring residents have regular and timely access to services provided through New York State LTCOP;
-Promoting the development of resident and family councils in individual facilities;
-Training both paid and volunteer representatives of New York State LTCOP; and
-Monitoring, analyzing, and commenting on the development and implementation of federal, state, and local long term care laws and policies.

Board and Care facilities (adult homes, assisted living facilities, family type homes, and enriched housing) number 82 with a total bed count of 4,593.
