Resident Empowerment Program
There are more than 150,000 older adults living in Contra Costa County. Many will need long-term care to help them maintain health and wellness. Contra Costa Senior Legal Services and Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa & Solano have partnered to provide innovative and responsive screening, education and legal counsel to residents of Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE).
What we do: REP is a first of its kind partnership between Contra Costa Senior Legal Services and Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa & Solano to ensure that all residents of long-term care facilities have current Advanced Health Care Directives and Durable Powers of Attorney as well as access to independent legal representation within a long-term care facility.
If you are a resident of a long-term care facility and would like an Advance Health Care Directive, Durable Power of Attorney, or more information about the REP, call Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa & Solano at (925) 685-2070 or CCSLS at (925) 609-7900.
