About

The Office of the Long Term Care Ombudsman is a small, independent agency of the State of Oregon. There are openings for three volunteers in Union County. Certified Ombudsman Volunteers spend 5-10 hours a week advocating for residents in long term care facilities.

They are trained to be citizen advocates and help solve problems and issues before other government agencies are involved. If you like to problem solve, work independently, and want to help the elders in your community, this program might be a great fit for you.

Training for new volunteers will be in the local area. Please apply more than 30 days before a training date. For more information, call Gretchen Jordan, Coordinator of Volunteers at 1-800-522-2602 or email at gretchen.jordan@state.or.us. For more information about the Long Term Care Ombudsman program, visit our website at www.state.or.us/LTCO. You can also sign up for a monthly informational webinar there.
