Ombudsmen are advocates and problem solvers for residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities across New Mexico. Volunteers provide a voice for vulnerable adults who might otherwise go unheard. Through regular visits, Ombudsmen assist these residents by advocating for their rights, investigating complaints and helping to resolve their concerns fairly, and ensuring they receive the care they deserve. Services are free, confidential and provided statewide by dedicated staff and volunteers.  Website:  http://www.nmaging.state.nm.us/Long_Term_Ombudsman
