​​Why volunteer?

Certified Ombudsmen Volunteers are independent citizen advocates who visit the residents of long-term care facilities and identify complaints or concerns.  They work independently to investigate these complaints and work with the staff to resolve problems, advocating from the resident point of view.  

Certified Ombudsman Volunteers advocate, educate, and investigate on behalf of the resident, for the resident, to protect their rights and dignity.  This role is best suited for someone that has 16 flexibile hours to volunteer each month.

Recruitment and Screening Committee volunteers are responsible for recruiting and screening volunteer ombudsman applicants in their communities.  They also create public awareness about the program and its services.  This role is best suited for those who can volunteer 1 - 2 hours a week during weekday and occassional weekend hours.
