During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Florida’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program has advocate positions available in the Southwest Florida office covering Charlotte, Collier, Desoto, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Sarasota counties. Volunteers visit with residents of nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult-family care homes to ensure they are treated with dignity and respect. Training and certification are provided and volunteers participate in council meetings, administrative assessments and complaint resolution in facilities.
Candidates need to:
Enjoy working with seniors and those with disabilities
Plan to volunteer 20 hours a month
Pass a background check (paid for by the Program)
Complete certification training
Attend a monthly meeting
Not work at a long-term care facility
