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

About

Certified Ombudsman Volunteers are needed in your community! As a volunteer, you will advocate for the rights and dignity of the resident; educate staff, family and residents about resident rights; and investigate quality of care issues such as billing, food, care, or housing issues. Volunteers are mandatory reporters of neglect or abuse and refer directly to Adult Protective Services for investigation and resolution. Use your professional skills to improve the quality of life for our elders in Nursing Homes, Assisted Living, Residential Care and Adult Foster Care Homes.
