Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program


National Ombudsman Day

On October 13, we celebrate everyone in our Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program for their dedication and advocacy to improve the quality of life for persons receiving long-term care services in our community. They work with residents of long-term care facilities to resolve complaints, train long-term care staff, and help educate the community about long-term care issues. Their services are free and confidential.

The Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program was established in 1985 and covers the jurisdictions of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun. The program covers more than 135 facilities in the Northern Virginia region.

We are grateful for their service to our community!
