Resident Council

Required by nursing home regulation, the Resident Council gives persons living in care settings the opportunity to communicate concerns to administrators, work for resolutions and improvements, and provide feedback about new programs (e.g., food services). Independent and empowered Resident Councils can play a crucial role in voicing concerns, requesting improvements, supporting new residents and supporting efforts to make care and life in the care setting the best it can be.
