Why Volunteer with us?

Certified Ombudsman

R&S Committee

Certified Ombudsmen Volunteers are independent citizen advocates who visit the residents of long-term care facilities, identifying complaints and concerns.

They investigate these complaints and work with the staff of the facilities to resolve problems, advocating from the resident point of view.

Volunteers advocate, educate, and investigate on behalf of the resident, for the resident, to protect their rights and dignity.

After a five-day training, Certified Ombudsmen Volunteers set their own schedule, attend monthly support group meetings, and volunteer 5-10 hours a week.  To download an application packet, click here.
