-- ST. LOUIS – VOYCE, formerly the Long Term Care Ombudsman Program, has launched its new website to provide greater resources to the community on long-term care. The website, voycestl.org, will bring more attention to VOYCE and the organization’
s mission, allowing users to take full advantage of its free services and make it easier for donors to seamlessly give to such a critical community resource.
The new website provides in-depth content on the organization’
s advocacy services for those living in long-term care settings and their families. The site also allows VOYCE to promote its VOYCEconnect (http://www.voycestl.org/
hotline, where callers can speak to long-term care experts Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CST. The site provides links to its consumer resource guide (http://www.voycestl.org/services/consumer-resource-guide/
) and other caregiver resources (http://www.voycestl.org/services/caregiver-resources/
) that could not be found on the older version of the website. “These tools will allow us to better connect with the people who need us the most,” says Mary Lynn Faunda Donovan, Executive Director. “We can now showcase all of the benefits we offer to our community, those living in long-term care facilities as well as those searching for long-term care options and services."
Thanks to funding from UVANTA Pharmacy, VOYCE was able to purchase a content management system vyzpt from WebSanity. The site provides VOYCE complete control and access to change and add content as needed thanks to an easy to use content management system.
“We are very grateful and excited to be able to offer the clients we help a website that is so important to us in the continuation of our mission," stated Julie Darnold, Development and Public Relations Coordinator,"
As we have adopted a wider mission to meet the growing demand for long-term care services in our community, the time has come to also revamp our education and resource materials, including our website.”

VOYCE seeks to educate and empower persons and their families for quality living across the continuum of long-term care. Our goal is to become the principal source of information and advocacy for these individuals and their families. We empower and educate those we serve.
