Santa Monica Nonprofit WISE & Healthy Aging Launches Advocacy Website

WISEOmbudsman.org designed to provide tools s to those who are looking to get better care in a skilled nursing or residential care facilities

WISE & Healthy Aging, the Santa Monica-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for older adults, has announced the launch of its new advocacy website, WISEOmbudsman.org. The site is designed to provide information, resources and tools to those who are looking to get better care in a skilled nursing or residential care facility.

“Whether you’re a professional, a family member or a facility resident who wants to understand their rights or know how to report a complaint about their care, our new site can help you find the information and resources you need,” said Molly Davies, LCSW, President and CEO of WISE & Healthy Aging.

The site includes a range of features, from helping individuals know their rights, filing complaints, providing resources and guides for professionals, offering the latest news on care facilities and giving details about how people can get involved in the fight against elder abuse.

“Whether you’re a professional, a family member or a facility resident who wants to understand their rights or know how to report a complaint about their care, our new site can help you find the information and resources you need,” said Molly Davies, LCSW, President and CEO of WISE & Healthy Aging.

A key component of the new website is its “Facility Locator Map” which enables users to select criteria for pinpointing just the right type of nursing or assisted living facility for their needs. This feature covers facilities in both Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties and can generate a customized report detailing all options available.

“Whether you’re a professional, a family member or a facility resident who wants to understand their rights or know how to report a complaint about their care, our new site can help you find the information and resources you need,” said Molly Davies, LCSW, President and CEO of WISE & Healthy Aging.

WISE & Healthy Aging has been supporting disabled and older residents’ rights in long-term care facilities throughout Los Angeles County for over 40 years while also overseeing the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program since April 2022 in San Bernardino County. The organization hopes that with this new advocacy website, they will be able to reach even more people and make an even larger impact on elderly lives across both counties.
