Senior Focus: Solving disputes at long-term care facilities
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Every day, families make the tough decision to place a loved one in a long-term care facility.
Sometimes the facility isn’t one that is handpicked by them but one that is chosen by their insurance company.
So whom do they turn to when there’s a problem?
Joining KSLA in the KSLA Café on Thursday (Oct. 26) to shed some light on this topic was Casandra Cesare, ombudsman manager for the Caddo Council on Aging.
She discussed how she helps solve problems and can serve as a mediator between the patient and the long-term care facility.
What are some of the most common problems you deal with?
What’s a quick list of the top three?
What are the toughest problems to solve?
What’s a final piece of advice for someone out there who’s having an issue with a facility?
