Solo-agers who count on others to provide help must let these helpers know where to get the information they need. The Ombudsman program in San Mateo County provides such information; it monitors nursing homes and residential care homes for complaints made by or on behalf of long-term care facility residents. Bernie Mellott, the Director of the San Mateo Ombudsman program, will provide an overview of this service. To add to this presentation, Nicole Fernandez from SM Co Aging & Adult services will talk about signs and symptoms of elder abuse, how to prevent it, and resources available to help protect seniors. Registration requested.
