What is a family council?

by Levin & Perconti

A family council is a group of family members with loved ones in nursing homes. The group is organized to empower and support residents and family members with loved ones in nursing homes, and to advocate for quality care in nursing homes. Ask your home administrator or local ombudsman if your home already has a family council.
