Pajama Drive and Brunch
This Saturday Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program of Northeast Indiana is hosting a pajama drive from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. Anyone is invited to come! There will be a free brunch, some pampering, and a little bubbly. While there is no fee to attend, you should bring a donation of a new pajama set or gown (any size or gender) and/or a small financial donation. The goal of this event is to help the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program share comfort and warmth with our nursing home neighbors in need. The event will feature vendors promoting wellness, Valentine gift ideas, and food. If you’d like to attend, RSVP online at www.doingthegood-ombudsman.org/brunch-event. Or contact Linda Hecht at 260-443-1836 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Long-Term Care Ombudsman helps protect the rights of aging adults in over 80 local nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The program aims to improve the quality of life and care for residents of long term care facilities. It accomplishes this mission through investigation and resolution of individual complaints, consumer education designed to inform and empower consumers, system advocacy which includes legislation and public policy activities, promotion of community involvement in long term care, and other activities designed to improve long term care delivery and oversight.
Come out this weekend to support the Ombudsmen and our local nursing home residents!
