The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Winston Churchill said, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’ Give your time, your talents and your heart to make a difference in the life of an older adult residing in a long-term care facility.
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:
providing residents information about their rights and available resources
gathering factual information about resident's complaints
assuring that resident's receive quality care and treatment from service providers.
We offer 12 hours of comprehensive classroom and field training to prepare volunteers to perform this important role. If you care about older adults, and want to ensure they have a quality life in long-term care facilities, contact Marie Coe by phone at 775-688-2964 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
