About

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 Millie Thomas by phone at (702) 486-2439 or by email at msthomas@adsd.nv.gov for additional information.
