Friends of Residents in Long-Term Care works to improve the quality of life for the 100,000 North Carolinians who can no longer live independently.


We are an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working on behalf of individuals residing in nursing homes, adult care homes (assisted living), continuing care retirement communities (CRCs), and private homes who need daily assistance with their social, psychological, medical, or financial needs.

Our mission is to empower residents and their families to improve the quality of care in our state by providing a state-wide network of education, advocacy, and support. Please join us!


2019 Legislative Advocacy Day

On April 3, 2019, Friends of Residents brought together 76 committed long-term care advocates from across the state to meet with legislators about critical issues facing NC’s long-term care residents. They delivered information about the necessity of raising the personal needs allowance for nursing home and assisted living residents and the need to support additional LTC ombudsmen positions to every state senator and representative.
