October is Resident Rights Month


Residents’ Rights Month is an annual event designated by Consumer Voice and is Celebrated
in October to honor residents living in all Long-Term Care facilities and consumers receiving
services in their home or community.
The 2021 Residents’ Rights Month theme, “Reclaiming My Rights, My Home, My Life,”
acknowledges the impact of this past year on residents and highlights the need for residents’
rights to be recognized, recovered, and reasserted. The theme focuses on raising awareness of
federally mandated residents’ rights while also underscoring the need for dignity and selfdetermination of all residents.
