The Seton Center has been contracted through the Area Agency on
Aging to act as the Ombudsman for residents of Westmoreland County
long-term care facilities. Our Ombudsman offices are located in
the Monahan Center
near the campus of Seton Hill University in Greensburg.
An Ombudsman is a specially trained individual who helps protect
the rights of older Pennsylvanians living in long-term care facilities.
Ombudsmen provide relevant information, answer questions, investigate
complaints about the quality of care or treatment from long-term
care providers, and offer assistance in resolving problems.
Our staff members serve as mediators, seeking to resolve issues
affecting people 60 years of age or older who are residents of nursing
homes and personal care homes, or who receive long-term care services
in their home or community. They work effectively with these individuals,
their families and friends, long-term care facility staff, government
agencies, and community groups. Our personnel are caring and empathetic,
are good listeners, and are skilled in negotiating, mediating, and
