Friends of Residents in Long-Term Care

It isn’t easy entrusting your loved ones to the care of a nursing home or other long-term care settings. What are the right questions to ask when seeking long-term care services? For nearly three decades, one organization has been helping North Carolinians navigate the long-term care system.

Friends of Residents in Long-Term Care (FORLTC) is an independent, nonprofit organization committed to advancing the quality of life for individuals who receive long-term care in North Carolina. It focuses on the continuum of long-term care including nursing homes, adult care homes (assisted living), continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), and home health care.

On “Real Life,” hear more about FORLTC from Executive Director Sheyna Alterovitz who talks about its’ goals and mission. Listen to this week’s “Real Life” on these stations:
