About

Volunteers needed in nursing homes, adult homes and assisted living residences. This program servces residents in licensed long-term care facilities in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties. We provide free training for volunteers to become New York State Certified Ombudsmen. An Ombudsman helps to resolve complaints, monitors quality of life, and helps to preserve the dignity of residents in long-term care facilities. The training by program staff and a faculty of experts covers a wide range of subjects, such as the aging process, regulations, levels of care, and how-to skills of working and negotiating with staff for the protection of residents' rights as prescribed by law. You can make a difference in the lives of the frail elderly.
