October 2021 Newsletter

October �� is National Long-Term Care Residents’ Rights Month! This year's theme “Reclaiming My Rights, My Home, My Life”. We honor those living in long-term care facilities by bringing awareness to the dignity and respect of each resident in long-term care facilities. Over 60% of the residents of long-term care facilities in South Carolina have no visitors. Commemorate Long-Term Care Residents’ Rights Month by becoming a Long-Term Care Ombudsman Volunteer. The efforts, presence, and commitment of the volunteer program makes a significant difference in the lives of many. To become a volunteer, contact the Lowcountry Ombudsman Team, Meyoka and Zoey, at 843-473-3955.

Help is on the way for Lowcountry renters and jobseekers in this edition of our newsletter. If you missed SC Works Open House last month, keep reading to find out how you can still take advantage of those resources. Please take time to complete the LRTP Survey. Medicare Open Enrollment details are featured also.

Happy Reading!
