John McDermott, Hawaii’s Long Term Care Ombudsman, looks out for the rights and well-being of our pensioners.

From the website: “The Long-Term Care Ombudsman (LTCO) program was established by federal and state statutes. The LTCO identifies, investigates, and resolves complaints that are made by, or on behalf of residents, and related to action, inaction, or decisions that may adversely affect the health, safety, welfare, and rights of residents of long term care facilities such as nursing homes, adult residential care homes, assisted living facilities, and other long-term care facilities.”

John will give us an update on the current challenges facing senior citizens in Hawaii.
