Our volunteers love to problem solve and use common sense solutions to real-world problems of the residents.

About

Residents in nursing homes, assisted living, and adult foster care homes have the same rights as you and I. Certified Ombudsman Volunteers advocate for those rights, educate staff and family about those rights, and investigate and resolve real-world issues for the residents (we report abuse complaints but do not investigate).

Our agency is the only one statewide that has a regular and continuing presences in these facilities to make sure the rights and dignity of our elders are protected. Often, volunteers solve the issue before any other state agencies get involved. Volunteers are needed especially in Jackson and Josephine Counties.

If you would like to know more, attend our monthly 'virtual open house'. You can attend a short presentation online. Visit our website at www.oregon.gov/ltco to sign up.
