Long Term Care Ombudsman Training Conference

October 7, 2009

The Sheraton – Syracuse University

One thing doesn’t change – the NYSOFA’s core mission of advocacy,

and the LTCOP is at the center of our advocacy for those that are most vulnerable – the institutionalized resident/patient. We will continue to honor and respect the right to self-determination.

The Boomers will make different demands of advocacy,

on our long term care system –

they will not be willing to accept the status quo and are already leading in many communities to create a different type of care delivery model.

Demographics, desires and preferences of older adults, younger adults and caregivers are pushing a policy and program agenda away from institutional living to one that is more integrated in the community.

  • NYSOFA will be working to bring volunteers, particularly retirees, into our programs.

  • Governor Paterson has placed new emphasis on volunteerism
