Eyes On Vulnerable Seniors: Oregon's LTCO Program

Who watches the people who watch senior citizens in care facilities?  Family members don't always have the ability to check up on their loved ones in long-term care. 

That's why Oregon has a Long-Term Care Ombusdman program, LTCO.  Staffers visit seniors in care facilities and keep track of everything from medical care to meal quality, and beyond.  LTCO officers visit to talk about the workings of the program, and the need to recruit new people.
