Public forum on nursing homes set Friday at 2 in Lexington

A public forum on nursing-home care will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at the Lexington Senior Citizens Center on Nicholasville Road next to the University of Kentucky campus.

The forum “may reveal what, if anything, is being done in Kentucky to improve care in nursing homes,” Kentuckians for Nursing Home Reform says in a news release. It says the event “is a result of direction from Gov. Steve Beshear that public forums be held across the state to give citizens a chance to present not only their complaints about long-term care, but suggest possible improvements.
Tomorrow’s forum is the only reaction so far to the governor’s request.”

The forum is organized by the Nursing Home Ombudsman Agency of the Bluegrass.
