Getting to Know You is the First Step in Advocacy

About

Up to 60% of nursing home residents have no one who visits them regularly - you can make a difference !

If you are a good listener and a strong advocate, help give frail and vulnerable residents a voice by joining our program. Become an Ombudsman Volunteer for nursing home residents in YOUR neighborhood - explain residents' rights, help residents to speak up with their questions and concerns, and partner with ombudsman staff to help residents resolve problems.

Learn how to advocate for residents in nursing homes - helping them to understand their rights, speak up about their preferences and needs, and partner with ombudsman staff to resolve problems and promote person-centered care. Trained volunteers are assigned a long term care facility near where they live or work. Volunteers are expected to visit and do other program related activities an average of 1 hr/week.

Join our training for new volunteer candidates - register now! Watch our website for upcoming training dates: www.proseniors.org
