October is Residents’ Rights Month

Residents’ Rights Month is held during the month of October to celebrate and focus on awareness of dignity, respect, and the value of long-term care residents. This year’s theme is “Stand for Quality” – to emphasize the importance of standing for quality in all aspects of residents’ experiences – quality care, quality of life, quality of services, and quality choices.

Missouri’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program “Stands for Quality Care” for all residents of long-term care homes. Celebrate “Residents’ Rights Month” in October!
