Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa is a donor-funded senior citizen’s advocacy group that serves Contra Costa County. We investigate and rectify claims of abuse and neglect in long term care facilities so that seniors can live with dignity and respect.
Our staff and volunteers are tough advocates who offer much more than just support and companionship. They are willing to tackle issues that might be difficult, frustrating or even heartbreaking at times. They get immense satisfaction knowing the good they do is enduring and profound.
An Elder is a person who is still growing, still a learner, still with potential and whose life continues to have within it promise for, and connection to the future. An Elder is still in pursuit of happiness, joy, and pleasure, and her or his birthright to these remains intact. Moreover, an Elder is a person who deserves respect and honor and whose work it is to synthesize wisdom from long life experience and formulate this into a legacy for future generations.
