Resident's Rights Advocates


A “Resident's Rights Advocate” is: 1) an employee or representative of any state or local government entity that has a responsibility regarding residents or patients of a home; 2) an employee or representative of any non-profit corporation or association that qualifies for tax-exempt status and whose purposes include educating and counseling residents, assisting residents in resolving problems and complaints concerning their care and treatment, and assisting them in securing adequate services to meet their needs.

Residents of nursing homes and residential care facilities may request that an advocate assist them in assuring that their rights as residents are met. Listed below are key personnel and telephone numbers for the three statewide agencies which actively engage in resident’s rights advocacy and a listing of other advocates by county. If any changes are needed to the listing, (e.g. county served, phone number) notify us by e-mail to liccert@odh.ohio.gov.
