Aging is everybody's business! Over 60% of people living in nursing homes do not have any family or friends visit them... this is why our job is so important! We act as advocates and speak on behalf of the residents. Residents have rights and deserve to expect excellence in their care!
COVID has put a spot-light on Nursing Homes, and the struggles the residents have every day with their personal care. Those living in Nursing Homes have been the most vulnerable to this insidious infection. Help us reach out to them. 2023 brings new opportunities for residents and their families to be heard in the State of Ohio. We are making history through Governor Mike Dewine's Nursing Home Task Force. Join our team of dedicated advocates and be their voice! Become a Certified Ombudsman Associate!
We work with individuals receiving long-term care in our communities wherever they live; including Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, and some Group Homes in Ohio Region 2. We serve in Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby Counties.
The Long-term Care Ombudsman Program Volunteer Coordinator, Dotty Young, can be reached through Volunteer Match or by phone at (800) 395-8267 or (937) 223-4613 (extension 109)
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program

Our mission is to promote high-quality, compassionate care for consumers of long-term care services through complaint investigation and resolution, and providing access to unbiased factual information on long-term care issues.
Ombudsman Associates, our volunteer advocates, seek to enhance the quality of life for long-term care consumers living in nursing homes, assisted living homes, group homes, and those consumers living out in the community. They help our team educate residents, family members, and friends about the resources available to them through the Ombudsman program and about the Residents’ Rights. We cover Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble and Shelby Counties. Veterans and retirees encouraged to apply.
