We are seeking dedicated individuals who want to make a difference, have caring spirity and a willingness to learn. Volunteer Ombudmen maintain a presence in nursing homes, assisted living and residential care facilities, memory care centers and adult foster homes. They identify investigate and resolve resdient's concerns.
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. There are volunteer openeings in Ashland, Medford, and Central Point.
