LTCO advocates for the rights of residents of long-term care facilities and investigates allegations of abuse, neglect and exploitation. LTCO is the voice of the state’s most vulnerable institutionalized elderly citizens.
You can help to improve the lives of elderly residents of long-term care facilities in your neighborhood. Volunteers receive 32 hours of free training. Classes are forming now.
LTCO Regional Ethics Committees provide much-needed education, conflict resolution, and ethical guidance to facilities and families when difficult decisions need to be made.

Advocate Laura Redman volunteers at Avista Care nursing home in Cherry Hill, which experienced numerous resident deaths during the pandemic. She constantly looks out for ways to alleviate their COVID lockdown loneliness, whether through a crossword puzzle, a Smithsonian magazine, a book about classical music, or a Sony Walkman and Motown CDs.
