The Nursing Home Ombudsman Agency of the Bluegrass, Inc. (NHOA) thanks The Grainger Foundation, a private, independent foundation, for its recent donation of $5,000. The grant will be used to provide ombudsman services to 5,500 frail, disabled residents of long-term care facilities in the organization’s 17-county service area.
Special thanks to Zachary Bear, manager of the Lexington Grainger location, for recommending NHOA for this grant to The Grainger Foundation.

The Nursing Home Ombudsman Agency’s Michelle Barnett of Cynthiana (left) received the first annual Bernie Vonderheide Award for Outstanding Service for advocating for long-term care residents in Harrison County. Tom Kring of Lexington presented the award on behalf of Vonderheide, who was instrumental in NHOA’s founding in 1981. A familiar name to Kentuckians, Vonderheide served as public relations director and spokesman for the University of Kentucky for almost 25 years.
