Ombudsman

An Ombudsman is an advocate for residents of nursing homes, board and care homes, and assisted living.  Ombudsmen provide information about how to find a facility and what to do to get quality care.  They are trained to resolve problems.  If you want, the ombudsman can assist you with complaints.  However, unless you give the ombudsman permission to share your concerns, these matters are kept confidential.

The State Office for the Aging (SOFA) employs an ombudsman in each county of New York State.  The State Office for the Aging can be reached at 1-800-342-9871.
