The Missouri ombudsman program is a network of volunteers serving residents of nursing homes and residential care facilities to provide advocacy, support, and assistance with any problems or complaints.
Long-term care ombudsmen are advocates for residents of nursing homes, board and care homes and assisted living facilities. Ombudsmen provide information about how to find a facility and what to do to get quality care.

Know your rights in Missouri.
A power of attorney (POA) form is a legal document saying you’re granting someone else (i.e. attorney) the power to act on your behalf. The biggest benefit to creating a POA is that it allows you to choose who you want to represent you if you’re unable to manage your affairs on your own, rather than having a representative chosen for you.
It’s all too easy to put off getting your legal paperwork in order. But when a major crisis hits, whether it’s an accident, illness, or death, it’s usually too late to start printing, signing, and notarizing forms. Here are the documents every adult needs now, so they’re ready if you require them later.
The federal Nursing Home Reform Law put into place a set of rights for residents of long term care communities. This fact sheet lays out the basic rights of residents.
