Recognizing Residents’ Rights

Source: Empowered Aging

Published: 2021


October is Rights Month. An annual event where we come together to recognize the rights, respect, and dignity that all long-term care residents are entitled to. No one understands the importance of Rights better than the family members of those in assisted living. As many of us know, advocating for long-term care residents to help solve problems and ensure they receive quality care is a tough job to navigate. An essential part of Rights Month is spreading awareness and education to empower the residents, the families, and all who serve them.

We are excited to welcome Andrea DuBrow, a social worker and family member of a long-term care resident, as our presenter for this session. Andrea will share her personal experience advocating for a parent in long-term care and what she wishes she would have known. If you’re ready to strengthen your position as a residents’ rights advocate and learn more about how you can help spread awareness, join us!
