About

The State of Nevada, Aging and Disability Services Division is looking for individuals to serve as volunteer long-term care ombudsmen in the Reno/Carson City area.

As a volunteer ombudsman, volunteers advocate for residents in long-term care facilities by:

We offer 12 hours of comprehensive classroom and field training to prepare volunteers to perform this important role. If you care about seniors, care about improving the quality of life for vulnerable residents living in long-term care facilities and want to ensure that they are treated with respect and dignity, give us a call TODAY!

We have volunteer roles open now in the Reno/Carson City area! Contact Jennifer Williams by phone at (775) 687-0823 or by email at jlwilliams@adsd.nv.gov for additional information.
