The Resident Advocate

The Resident Advocate, is a newsletter for residents of long-term care facilities. It provides:

  • Information on residents' rights and care issues

  • News and updates on national policy

  • Self-advocacy tips for obtaining person-centered, quality care

The newsletter is a great resource for residents and families, and can also be shared among friends, facility staff, ombudsmen, and others.


The newsletter is mailed free of charge to residents of nursing homes, assisted living facilities and board and care facilities and individuals receiving long-term care in their home or community.  If you are an individual receiving long-term care and would like to have The Resident Advocate mailed to you, send your name and address to info@theconsumervoice.org

If you are a nursing facility, long-term care Ombudsman program representative, or other advocate who would like copies of The Resident Advocate, you are welcome to download the issues from this webpage.
