all right I think we can look started.hello everyone my name is Hannah harder.and I work for Kauffman and associates I.would like to welcome everyone to.today's webinar entitled long-term care.Ombudsman program advocacy services for.tribal elders living in long-term care.facilities today our speakers are.Theresa people Theresa is a long-term.care Ombudsman and Arizona she oversees.the administration of local Ombudsman.programs house in the state aight area.Agencies on Aging two of which serve.tribal members and the long-term care.facilities both on and off reservations.through tribal long-term care Ombudsman.program Theresa most recently served as.the volunteer coordinator for the.long-term care Ombudsman program at the.Area Agency on Aging region 1 and.Phoenix Arizona welcome Theresa we are.also joined by Luis Ryan Lewis currently.serves as investment program specialist.for the US administration for living or.excuse me for community living in the.administration on Aging for primary.duties include providing technical.assistance States on policy and.interpretation of the older Americans.act as it relates to the operations of.long-term care Ombudsman program prior.to coming to ACL she was Washington.State long term care Ombudsman on.today's webinar we will discuss what.qualities right and services a resident.or family members should expect from a.long-term care facility we will also.discuss long-term care Ombudsman program.services and how to access them on an.off tribal lands and finally we will.discuss opportunities to engage in.Ombudsman programs in order to increase.or improve culturally competent.Ombudsman services to American Indians.living in long-term care facilities I.will now turn it over to our first.speaker Louise fried good afternoon and.good morning everybody thank you for.joining the call yeah so we're going to.talk as was described about the.long-term care Ombudsman program and how.we can work with.American Indian tribes and so just to.start this kind of framework just want.to throw out some questions for you to.think about during the presentation one.is do you have or see unmet needs for.your tribal members who live in.long-term care facilities do your tribal.members who live in long-term care.facilities currently have access to a.long term care Ombudsman and also we.would like to hear any suggestions that.you might have for how ACL can support.development of culturally competent.services to tribal members who live in.long-term care facilities so those are.some things we are offering as questions.to discuss at the end of our.presentation so long term care.facilities what are they there's many.different definitions and I'm going to.use the ones from the older Americans.Act nursing facilities also called.nursing homes or skilled nursing.facilities we have board and care homes.which are also called personal care.homes adult family homes assisted living.facilities and similar adult care.facilities so the older Americans Act.has a broad brush about what we call a.long-term care facility and nursing.facilities as you know are the ones that.have federal oversight through Medicare.and Medicaid so you can go from state to.state and they are fairly similar in.what they are providing in terms of.services what's more challenging is when.you get into assisted living or what we.call board and care adult family homes.adult foster homes many of those.services are very state specific.sometimes even County or region specific.and we don't have that same kind of.federal oversight and consistency but.every state has these other types of.homes and I suspect some of the people.you work with live in those settings we.know that most older adults.prefer to live in their own home and.receive services in their own home and.that is certainly a model that is well.developed and preferred at this point.the older Americans Act does not.authorize Ombudsman services for people.living in their own private homes but we.do have 12 states and the District of.Columbia that have expanded their.program through state laws to offer in.home Ombudsman services so that is a.kind of an emerging trend in the.Ombudsman world so I guess I want to.just talk for a few minutes as you think.about the people that you work with who.live in long-term care and just really.remember that they have rights and that.residents and families should be.encouraged to have some expectations.about their care and about their.preferences so you know again you know.when somebody moves into a long-term.care facility they don't lose their.basic rights and I mean I know that.sounds obvious but a lot of people start.to think well I live in this facility.now so I can't I have to ask permission.to go out or I have to you know I can't.be out past a certain hour I mean I've.heard many misunderstandings that people.have about their rights when they move.into a facility but you know I always.when I used to Train Ombudsman I'd.always say you know if you're thinking.about what can a person do in a.long-term care facility ask yourself can.I do this you know can I associate with.my friends can I go out and have a drink.whatever it is that you do is it in your.day-to-day life that generally speaking.residents have that same right to do.those things in nursing homes through.federal law residents have a protective.set of rights and that's especially.critical.things like if a resident is issued an.eviction notice or is not receiving the.level of services that they should.there's a lot to fall back on in terms.of the federal regulations to support.resident rights and care when it comes.to our board and care settings which you.know you might call assisted living or.personal care homes or residential care.every state is different and that makes.it pretty challenging so I would say get.to know your local Ombudsman if you're.not familiar with the regulations for.those settings and what the rights are.for those settings get to know your.local Ombudsman because they can be a.great resource to explain the standards.a few expectations and I think Theresa I.was going to turn this one over to use.that sound right no I'm going to do this.last one I'm sorry I can't see my own.little personal notes here couple of.things I wanted to mention about.resident rights and expectations that.family and residents should have one in.particular is obviously to be the right.to be free from abuse neglect and.exploitation regardless of the setting.you know we want to set the standard.that no vulnerable or older adults.should be subject to abuse neglect or.exploitation and the other thing that.comes up in long-term care facilities.are both chemical and physical.restraints and a chemical restraint is.often you know it could be.anti-psychotic medication that is.inappropriately used it could be an.anti-anxiety drug or some other drug.that that kind of alters the person so.that they are quite often they're used.to say calm a person down there they.might be used for staff convenience it's.easier to give them a pill than to deal.with the challenging behavior and I.could talk a lot about what we call.channel.behaviors sometimes it's the challenging.behavior of the care staff that is.causing problems for the resident so.there's a lot to be aware of around.medications that people are on and to.make sure that residents and families.work with their doctor and the care.staff to make sure they're on the.appropriate types of medication the.other thing is when you think of.physical restraints you might think of.the more you know horrific stories of.people being tied to their bed or you.know strapped in a wheelchair but it can.be other things it can be I've heard of.things like in the smaller adults foster.home settings where maybe the doors are.difficult to open and so people get.stuck in their room because they can't.turn the doorknob there might be one of.those baby guards on the doorknob that.makes it hard for that person to get in.and out of their room they might be.reclined in a chair that they can't get.out of another thing to be aware of is.is bed rails bed rails can be assist a.person to get in and out of bed but they.are also highly hazardous and people.have gotten entrapped in bed rails and.have suffocated and have died so be.aware that bed rails can often be a.hazard and not a helpful helpful tool.for a resident a few other things to be.aware of is especially in nursing home.there is a standardized assessment and.care plan that's to be carried out but.even in other settings you know if the.facility is holding out that they.provide services and care say dementia.care or you know they help with all.activities of daily living you should.expect that there's some kind of an.assessment and care plan residents have.the right to privacy.privacy in their visits privacy of their.mail confidentiality of their records.again the right to choose to participate.in the committee community to worship or.practice their traditions and also in.nursing homes there's very clear.protections from improper or illegal.evictions and now I am going to turn it.over to Theresa great thanks Louise and.hi everybody so Louise great gave a.great overview of what it is that we.consider to be a long-term care facility.based on definitions in the older.Americans Act and also what we should.expect from long-term care facilities.what we sometimes don't think about is.the fact that there are long-term care.facilities on tribal lands in fact.currently there are around 15 CMS funded.nursing homes on tribal lands nationwide.because these nursing homes are.certified by the centers for medicare.and medicaid services and they receive.federal funds they're required to uphold.CMS requirements one of those.requirements is to ensure that the.residents of those facilities have.access to long term care Ombudsman.services CMS can cite the facility for.not ensuring this access and.unfortunately it has happened in the.recent past I won't mention what state.that's happened in but it's not.something that doesn't occur well it is.important to ensure that facilities on.tribal lands aren't being cited by CMS.for this what's more important for all.of us is that residents in these.facilities are afforded the same.opportunity to talk with an ombudsman.who is a resident centered advocate as.our residents and other long-term care.facilities off tribal lands throughout.the nation.here we go and really that's because an.ombudsman is committed to working with.residents and their loved ones to.resolve problems that residents are.facing both within the facility and also.with others outside of the facility so.individuals and organizations outside of.this facility for example a state.Medicaid agency anybody that might have.an impact on that residence quality of.care or quality of life Ombudsman are.also committed to advocating for the.rights of residents in these facilities.and really ensuring that when there are.rights violations there's someone.standing in the residence corner at the.end of the day our goal is to ensure.that all residents and long-term care.facilities are receiving good quality.care that they have the best possible.quality of life and also that the rights.of residents are being promoted within.these facilities so Louise will now.share with us some information about the.structure of the Ombudsman program so.every state has a state long term care.Ombudsman and that also includes the.district of columbia puerto rico and.guam and the Ombudsman has the authority.to designate representatives and the.representatives might be paid staff or.volunteers and they are typically called.a long term care Ombudsman and they.represent the state Ombudsman and.Ombudsman have a fair amount of.authority so they have the ability to.access long term care facilities.generally speaking at any time obviously.late at night there's some extra.precautions and hoops to go through to.make a really late visit but they do.have that kind of access through through.federal law they're granted that level.of access they have access to the.residents with resident consent they can.look at resident records to resolve a.problem right now there's around 1,100.plus full time staff Ombudsman over 9000.certified Ombudsman volunteers and then.there's other people who support the.ombudsman programs.in other ways through volunteer work and.there's over 3,000 of those types of.volunteers and Theresa is going to talk.for a little bit more about how Arizona.works with their tribes and this in.particular the long-term care Ombudsman.program services so as we said we're.going to talk about Arizona I love being.able to brag a little bit about the.great work that we're doing here but in.just a minute we'll talk about a variety.of services provided by long-term care.Ombudsman so before I wanted to do that.I wanted to give you some context about.our program here in Arizona because we.are a little bit unique in our.experiences that we've had working with.tribes around ombudsman service.provision so Arizona is home to 22.federally recognized tribes two of our.eight area Agencies on Aging.specifically serve tribal members both.on and off tribal lands area Agencies on.Aging our offices established through.the older Americans Act that served to.facilitate and support the development.of programs to address the needs of.older adults in defined geographic.regions so really they provide you know.the boots on the ground services for.older Americans Act programs one of the.area Agencies on Aging within Arizona.that specifically serves tribal members.is the Navajo Nation Area Agency on.Aging and it houses a tribal Ombudsman.program so I have some fun with these.little sons here on the maps you'll.notice that a little Sun popped up right.there up on the Navajo Nation in the.northeast corner of our state so our.Navajo Nation Ombudsman Leland bitsy.serves Navajo residents on the Navajo.Nation in Arizona New Mexico and Utah.and also serves Navajo residents and.long-term care facilities statewide in.Arizona the other area agency on aging.that serves tribal members specifically.is housed within the inner Tribal.Council of Arizona the intertribal.Council of Arizona was established in.1952 to provide a united voice for.tribal governments located in the state.of.Arizona to address common issues of.concerns I TCA as we call it houses a.tribal Ombudsman program who's fabulous.coordinators Tiffany Ozzy and they.contract out for Ombudsman services with.five tribes the Hopi Tribe the White.Mountain Apache Tribe the Pascua Yaqui.tribe the Tana awesome nation and just.recently were excited about this the.Salt River Pima maricopa indian.community in arizona were also home to.three nursing homes on tribal lands the.Chinle nursing home on the Navajo Nation.the Archie Hendrix skilled nursing.center on the Tana awesome nation and.the Gila River Indian Care Center which.is also known as the caring house at the.Gila River Indian Community assisted.living facilities are also popping up on.tribal lands throughout the state there.seems to be a growing interest in.bringing tribal members and facilities.off-reservation throughout the state and.actually in other states throughout the.country back home to these facilities if.they do require assisted living facility.or boarding care level facility care so.now that you have an understanding of.our program here in Arizona I'll talk a.bit about the wide variety of services.provided by Ombudsman and give some.examples of specific benefits of tribal.Ombudsman programs at least from the.experience that we've had here in.Arizona.and I actually having a little bit of.technical difficulty are you all seeing.my screen right now I am now I wasn't.from mil I was for a minute no I'm not.sorry you seeing the PowerPoint no let's.hear something seems to have happened.yeah sorry about that folks just give us.one minute here there we go okay perfect.alright so we'll start with examples of.some long-term care Ombudsman services.related to complaint resolution so it's.at the very heart of what we do on.bosman are involved in complaint.resolution so we problem solve with.residents when their rights are violated.for example when facilities attempt to.force improper evictions on residents.which unfortunately is a frequent issue.that we deal with here in Arizona and I.know that it's actually a nationwide.issue as well we also assist residents.in learning about gaining access to.services that they might need like.physical therapy or sometimes.translation services and we work with.residents to to help them get involved.in planning for their care so that their.needs are being met and their goals.their goals not just the goals of their.family members or medical staff or.facility staff but residents goals are.being addressed I in my experience.tribal Ombudsman bring added benefits to.the program in relation to some of these.buds and services one example of this is.in relation to translation and language.so this can be a huge issue and a.barrier to good service provision in.long-term care facilities of course you.know all Ombudsman can be engaged in.ensuring that residents are provided.information in a language that they're.most.durable with but trial Ombudsman often.have the unique advantage of being able.to also converse with residents in their.native language something that at times.not many facility staff are able to do.and you know oftentimes residents who.have visitors to the facility aren't.able to speak in native language as well.so it's it's a tree for folks I've.watched this happen and you know when.residents are able to speak their native.language and be understood honestly.their faces just light up I think it's a.bit of home that our tribal Ombudsman.are able to bring to residents and it.also really helps to build trust which.is so important to establish between an.ombudsman and a resident as Lee's.mentioned earlier residents have the.right to make choices about things like.how they receive care and white type of.care that they receive also about.activities in which they participate and.tribal Ombudsman are really skilled and.able to assist tribal residents in.making choices that are in letting folks.know at the facility level what choices.they'd like to make because sometimes we.find that tribal members and long-term.care facilities particularly.off-reservation are less likely to speak.up and make their voices heard so our.tribal Ombudsman are in a good position.to help begin some of those.conversations the older Americans Act.requires that Ombudsman programs ensure.residents have regular and timely access.to Ombudsman services of course.Ombudsman need to be in facilities with.frequency to ensure that residents know.who they are what services they provide.and how they can access those services.routine visits to facilities also.important because the more residents.ease and interacts with her Ombudsman.the more likely she is to reach out when.an issue does arise abodes men provide.services that are confidential and we.take confidentiality very very seriously.in the Ombudsman program sometimes.residents are less likely to share.important information about issues.they're facing in facilities if they.aren't assured that the sharing will be.kept confidential as I had noted earlier.our tribal Ombudsman visit their tribal.members but.on and off reservation with frequency.and in doing so they of course are.providing access to Ombudsman services.but also they're really able to help.strengthen residents cultural.connections to their tribes and also.assist at times with language.translation some of our tribal Ombudsman.will for example bring tribal priests.newspapers and newsletters to residents.off reservation to help them feel more.connected to their homes it can be.challenging honestly for anybody to.visit residents and long-term care.facilities when you know distance is an.issue particularly so for families and.friends of residents who are visiting.loved ones in long-term care facilities.when hundreds of miles separate them.which is often the case here in Arizona.so having visits from tribal Ombudsman.who can bring news from home is.definitely an added benefit and finally.travel Ombudsman are also able to assist.residents who may only speak or maybe.more comfortable speaking in their.native language as I had mentioned.earlier in Arizona we've been working to.produce residents rights information in.native languages so that all residents.can understand what rights they are.afforded as residents of long term care.facilities so this is sort of a.smattering of other services that.Ombudsman provide Ombudsman support.resident and family councils and a.resident council is basically a resident.driven meeting in nursing homes that.usually meet about monthly to discuss.concerns develop suggestions and.improving services and sometimes plan.social activities for the facility.meetings are by invite only for anyone.other than a resident as required by.federal regulation so oftentimes.councils and bite Ombudsman to.participate and you know based on what's.shared in meeting Ombudsman can help to.resolve issues that are brought up.during the meeting Ombudsman also.provide information and consultation to.residents and also their family and.friends so for example we frequently.provide information to folks who are.looking.for long term care facilities that meet.particular needs and who needs some.guidance on how to choose one tribal.Ombudsman provide frequent consultation.to other long-term care Ombudsman as.well here in Arizona to ensure that.we're working with residents who are.tribal member when we're working with.residents who are tribal members we're.doing so in a culturally competent way.so we've recently had Tiffany Ozzy.provide cultural competency training to.other program coordinators for the.Ombudsman program here in Arizona and.she just got rave reviews on that num.buds and also provide consultations to.facility staff sometimes facility staff.needs gentle reminders about the rights.that residents are entitled to tribal.Ombudsman in Arizona has been able to.assist facilities and understanding.traditions for example that tribal.members who reside in their facilities.might want to participate in I was.recently having a discussion with Leland.Betsy our Navajo Ombudsman can you share.with me that he had helped the facility.understand why it was that every morning.before the Sun rose right before the Sun.rose and also right after sunset were.during sunset one of their Navajo.residents was quote unquote sneaking.outside with a small pouch of yellow.powder so facility staff couldn't figure.out why this was happening and we will.Leyland was able to talk with this.resident who only spoke dinnae and she.shared with him that she it was a prayer.that she was participating in at morning.and night and that the yellow powder was.in fact corn pollen so I guess it's a.practice that is common to some.traditional Navajo zand so because.Leland was able to understand you know.what was happening and with the consent.of the resident share that with facility.staff you know they were able to build.that into her daily routine tribal.ombudsman in Arizona have also worked.with facilities one resident thought.traditional medicine healing we've.helped to arrange for and also.participated in cleansing ceremonies and.long-term care facilities when residents.and buildings have requested it and.finally Ombudsman are tasked with.working on larger systems issues that.have an impact on resident.for example we work to ensure that law.is passed at the local state and federal.level have residents in mind tribal.Ombudsman are able to provide really.unique perspectives and insight into.these areas as well so now that you know.more about the Ombudsman program and.what it is in an ombudsman does how can.you go about contacting one when you.need assistance it's actually rather.simple in most facilities you'll find.information for the Ombudsman program.posted including contact information as.it's a requirement to CMS certified.facilities we also have a fantastic.National Ombudsman Resource Center.that's constantly updating contact.information for Ombudsman nationwide.state Ombudsman and local entities and.you can find that information on the.website listed here sowww LTC on Baz.Luhrmann org or at that phone number if.you're interested in exploring the.creation or expansion of tribal.Ombudsman services in your state I'd.recommend that you reach out to your.state Ombudsman so again you know you.can find their contact information on.the National Ombudsman resource center.site or your state unit on Aging and the.leaves will now talk about some funding.related issues to give you an idea of.how the program is funded or could be.funded in your state Thank You Teresa um.yeah I just a couple things I see.there's a couple chat questions and one.I'm going to save for when everybody's.unmuted but the other question from.Nancy do Ombudsman an eight-hour.Ombudsman and every state required to.visit long-term care facilities um I.would say generally yes Ombudsman are to.try to visit long-term care facilities.the challenge can be there's not like a.standard you know you they must bit x.visit X number of times a year or.anything like that but there's a.underlying philosophy that to really get.to know Reza.you have to visit regularly so the.federal in their reporting and /.Ombudsman reporting it's considered if.an ombudsman visits a facility quarterly.that is a barebone standard of providing.routine access now a lot of states would.try to visit facilities weekly but the.challenges there's not enough Ombudsman.to go around all the facilities so not.all facilities have a assigned Ombudsman.who visits regularly but if residents.call Ombudsman respond to those.complaints and Ombudsman most states.rely on volunteers who are certified.they're trained and certified as.Ombudsman and so the more that Ombudsman.can recruit and train and certify.volunteers the greater the reach is into.the facilities with the routine visits.so it's you know but definitely they are.required to provide access it's just.they how it's how it's done varies from.state to state and it's a resource issue.and speaking of resource issues the.current funding for state Ombudsman.programs the older Americans Act.provides almost sixty percent of the.funding for programs through title seven.which is the the title where the state.Ombudsman laws are located and then so.that title seven is the where there's a.dedicated funding stream for Ombudsman.programs but title three funds either at.the state or the local area agency level.are also used to support local Ombudsman.programs States also provide state.general funds to programs and then at.the local level we might see counties or.private funders like the united way or.other private grants help.to fund local programs and the extent to.which these funds would be available two.tribes depends on the kind of the tribal.relationship to this state so we see in.Arizona how they worked through that.through their two area agencies that.provide direct services to tribes and.our our tribal area Agencies on Aging so.that that will vary from state to state.now tribes may use their older Americans.Act title 6 funds for Ombudsman services.there's basically that there's an array.of services that can be used for with.title 6 funding and certainly Ombudsman.services would be one one option so.that's and that's kind of in part why I.mentioned the funding just so you're.aware that title six funds could be used.for that as well and I think basically.in closing before we get two questions.there was an institute of medicine study.back in 1995 and we still kind of look.to that study for guidance and insight.and one thing that that study found that.i think still rings true today is that.the ombudsman program does serve a vital.public purpose and every year long term.care Ombudsman helped thousands of.individual residents and the program can.really claim to have improved the system.of long-term care services and i know.from my past experience as a state.Ombudsman and now here it at AOA where I.get to hear or what Ombudsman are doing.around the country they make a huge.difference to residents every day and so.any way that we can help you to help to.get these services out to two people.living in long-term care facilities.whether on tribal lands or.we you know would really like to promote.that Teresa do you want to kind of go.back to our questions for dialogue sure.so I think Hannah was going to or Hannah.yeah lead us in some questions open up.the line Hannah.I'm sorry I was on mute I'm sorry but I.would like to thank both of our speakers.today you both did an excellent job as.they mentioned we are now going to begin.our question-and-answer time if you have.a question you can press star six to.unmute your line or another option is.you can type your question into the chat.box which you can find on the bottom.right hand corner of your screen I know.that there is one question already in.there and i'll go ahead and read that to.you is there a certain age group ie our.baby boomers or old or older citizens.that use native languages more than.younger elders tonight I can answer that.I think that in talking with my tribal.Ombudsman I would definitely say that.the older folks are definitely more.likely to want to converse a native.languages or have that be you know the.primary language that they speak so.they're seeing less and less frequency.of you know younger elders wanting to.speak in native languages great are.there any other questions again you can.press star six to unmute your line to.ask the question or you can type your.question into the chat box.looks like we have someone typing give.us one second.looks like we have a couple people.typing your questions so we'll just sit.tight until has come out from the chat.box thanks for your patience all right.the other question Karen I'm budman.advocate for elders receiving in-home.care this is Louise and I'll I'll answer.that one so there's nothing in the.federal older Americans act that.provides for Ombudsman to provide.Ombudsman services in a person's private.home so the short answers no but there.are 12 states and the District of.Columbia that have created state laws.that allow Ombudsman to provide the.services to people in their homes.typically when the person is receiving a.Medicaid funded home care service that.that is when that typically that's when.that happens so I boy I can't name the.state's off the top of my head but if.you wanted to know which states my.emails at the end and you can email that.that question to me in terms of which.states and I can um give you the list of.states and then Aaron Nelson task.outside of the Ombudsman program are.there efforts being made to promote.culture change and long-term care.facilities located on tribal land and.Aaron I'm assuming you're talking about.culture change in terms of the work.being done to change the culture of.nursing homes getting away from a.medical model to a person centered model.is that kind of what you're that's.correct that's exactly on what I was.asking about thank you mm-hmm.teresa you may have some insights but I.i know i have i've been to a couple of.conferences where the theme is culture.change the piner network conferences and.i have seen a couple of tribal nursing.homes attend those conferences so my.assumption is that some are looking at.that way to get at a more.person-centered you still stick to the.to the regulations required of a nursing.home but you do it in a way that.promotes resident choice it might mean.that for instance instead of staffing.the way it's been done because it's.always been then that way you know 723.3332 midnight whatever use staff.according to when the residents really.need you to be there so you might have.more staff at different points in the.morning and then more staff later you.know so it's it's focused on the.resident so I think Teresa I don't know.if you have more to add to that you know.I I don't know that it's something.that's honestly talked about at least in.our facilities here in Arizona or I.haven't been involved in those.discussions that weren't Ombudsman.specific I think it's a great question.and there's a lot to do to promote.culture change in those facilities and.to work with others who could be doing.similar work so I'm glad that the.question was asked.are there any other questions again you.can press star six or you can type it.into the chat box.all right well if you do have future.questions you can email them to LTSs.info at coffman inc com oh it looks like.we had up some focus I feel great.wonderful all right we'll give them a.few moments to type in their questions.okay powerpoint be available for.downloading yes Rob it will be and I.will get to those details as soon as we.wrap up the question and answer.you.okay do I'm buckland work with prisons.that have tribal elders and that type of.system so this is Louise and long-term.care Ombudsman would not but I I am.aware that some prisons have an.ombudsman and i'm not sure if their role.is more of a mediator I don't know if.they'd be a typical advocate long-term.care Ombudsman are what's considered an.advocate Ombudsman where we are not a.neutral fact we're not a neutral party.trying to mediate a
