The Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman works to advocate for the rights and wishes of residents and tenants in long-term care, including those living in nursing facilities, residential care facilities, assisted living programs and elder group homes.
Volunteers will assist our team in reaching non-English speaking residents and families by translating educational and promotional materials to inform them of their rights in a long-term care setting.
Ideally, volunteers with the same language skills will work in virtual teams (one to translate, the other to check the translation for accuracy) in order to reach a final product. We have begun some materials in Spanish, Portuguese, and Arabic but additional volunteers are needed to check the accuracy of these submissions and translate additional materials.
Asian language translations especially in demand!
