Long-Term Care Ombudsman Programs and Protection & Advocacy Agencies Collaboration Toolkit

February 6th, 2017

Persons with disabilities receiving or in need of long-term services and supports have available nationally at least two advocacy organizations – Protection and Advocacy (P&A) and the Long-Term Care Ombudsman program (LTCOP).  Individuals residing in long-term care facilities may encounter challenges and opportunities for which they need an advocate. This new toolkit (available on the Collaboration/Working with Other Agencies page) includes eight tip sheets/briefs, examples of collaboration and advocacy, and information about developing a written partnership agreement (e.g., Memorandum of Understanding).
