About

Certified Ombudsman Volunteer training is coming to Lane County in January 2018!

Volunteers investigate and resolve complaints to benefit Oregon's long-term care residents. Ombudsman volunteers help to ensure rights, improve quality of care, and promote dignity for residents living in nursing homes, assisted living and residential are facilities, adult foster care communities and memory care facilities. This is accomplished through advocacy and problem resolution.

If you are looking for a way to use your professional skills in communication, advocacy, human services, or problem solving this might be a great fit for you. Our volunteers enjoy the flexible volunteer hours, expanding their social network, improving the care for the aging, and gaining knowledge.

To sign up for an informational webinar go to www.oregon.gov/ltco or call 503-378-6303 and request an application packet to be sent to you by email or mail.
