Volunteer Long-Term Care Ombudsman

About

Long-term Care Ombudsman Program: Volunteers help advocate for residents 60 and older who live in local long-term care facilities (Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities) by monitoring their care and treatment. Ombudsman volunteers conduct routine facility visits to interview residents about their care and to receive resident complaints. Volunteers also educate facility staff and residents about Resident Rights and the Ombudsman Program.

This is a very rewarding position, knowing that you help inform and empower residents and their families - ensuring their rights are respected. Background check and training is provided and semi-flexible service hours are involved.

Davis County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is for people age 55 or more. Benefits of volunteering through RSVP include:

  • Supplemental insurance while in service
  • Mileage reimbursement for travel to and from volunteer site
  • Ongoing recognition programs throughout the year
