About

Certified Ombudsman Volunteers investigate and resolve complaints to benefit Oregon's long-term care residents. If you are looking for a way to use your professional skills in communication, advocacy, or human services, this might be a great fit for you. Visit residents, mostly during daytime business hours and advocate to protect their rights and dignity, as well assisting with recognizing and reporting elder abuse.

Check out our website for details at www.oregon.gov/ltco and sign up for a short webinar held the second Wednesday of every month to hear more. View on your computer or call in by phone for a short presentation, hear from active volunteers, and ask questions.
