Through the Illinois Department on Aging, the state long term care ombudsman protects and promotes the rights and quality of life for people who reside in long term care facilities (nursing homes). This is done through regional ombudsmen who have a hands–on working relationship with the residents and staff of the facilities within their program areas.
