We'll help you navigate the long-term care system.

What Do We Do? 
Friends of Residents in Long-Term Care (FORLTC) is an independent, nonprofit organization committed to advancing the quality of life for the 100,000 individuals who receive long-term care in North Carolina. We focus on the entire continuum of long-term care including nursing homes, adult care homes (assisted living), continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), and home health care.

We accomplish our mission by 
  • Being an independent resource for consumers and families
  • Providing consumer-focused information about your long-term care options and rights
  • Helping you navigate the complicated system of long-term care services and supports
  • Offering seminars and training to consumers, providers, and advocates   
  • Building public awareness about long-term care issues
  • Answering questions on our Consumer Warm Line at 919-782-1530
Why Support Friends of Residents in Long-Term Care?
We represent over 100,000 people in North Carolina who, because they can no longer live independently, receive long-term care services.  These residents and their family members need our voice, our commitment, and our strength to continue advocating for a better quality of life.  

Your tax-deductible contribution to FORLTC allows us to advocate for and support the vulnerable elders and people with disabilities who receive long-term care in our state.  Your support enables us to develop new trainings, provide enhanced outreach programs, have a stronger voice in the legislature, mentor students interested in the field of long-term care, and promote positive change for residents in nursing homes, adult care homes, independent living centers, and continuing care retirement communities.
