About

The State of Nevada, Aging and Disability Services Division is looking for individuals to serve as volunteer long-term care ombudsmen. 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 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! Contact Millie Thomas by phone at (702) 486-2439 or by email at msthomas@adsd.nv.gov for additional information.
