Ombudsman P.E.E.R. graduation

Nine graduates of Pennsylvania's Empowered Expert Residents (P.E.E.R.)program were recognized for their accomplishments with a luncheon and graduation ceremony at Wallingford Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on September 30, 2013. The P.E.E.R. project was initiated by the Pennsylvania State Ombudsman Office to work in selected sites with long-term care residents who have volunteered their time and expertise to self-advocate issues that will resonate with their peers. The project encourages a partnership between residents and facility staff to work together to enhance the quality of care and life for residents in long-term care facilities.
