Thanks to people like you, Friends of Residents in Long Term Care has advocated for the elderly and disabled in North Carolina’s long term care facilities since 1985. Over the years, your generosity has enabled us to establish increased staffing ratios, to address the inappropriate use of restraints and psychotropic drugs, to establish a star rating system for adult care homes, and to require mandatory criminal background checks on nursing home staff.
Last year, support from our donors allowed us to launch a Lawyer Referral Service, a free non-profit service to help families address elder abuse, neglect and medical malpractice. As an organization we helped families find resources, navigate the long-term care system, and learn more about their rights and options. We've represented the voice of long term care consumers and family members in multiple stakeholder groups. Contributions are critical to enabling these accomplishments.
We appeal to you again to support our work, which is becoming ever more relevant with the rapid aging of North Carolina’s population. This spring we have an opportunity to match up to $1,500 thanks to a generous $1,000 matching gift from AARP-NC along with $500 pledged by our board of directors. This matching campaign will run through May culminating in a June celebration event. Please join or renew your membership with Friends of Residents in Long Term Care and make an additional charitable donation as generously as you can on behalf of your fellow citizens, your family, and yourself.
You will be investing in kindness. Thank you.
Brian Liebman, President
