If you are a diplomatic and skilled communicator who cares deeply about the quality of care and rights of those seniors and who reside in long-term care facilities, Senior Services can use your help!
The Long-Term Care Ombudsman program team serve as advocates, monitor quality-of-care, and ensure that resident’s rights are protected.
We ask our volunteer Ombudsman to commit to a one year period of service, with a minimum of 5 hours per week. Ombudsman serve seniors Monday through Friday during the day 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.
***As of October 2021, we have been unable to resume this volunteer program due to COVID-19. If you would like to be on our list of future Ombudsman, when nursing homes are safely able to allow outside visitors in, please email Jillian Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. A training date for 2022 has not yet been set***
