The Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program (SW Region) is seeking compassionate individuals to visit and provide outreach to residents residing in assisted living, memory care, adult family and nursing homes.
A visiting volunteer Ombuds educates resident's regarding their rights, empowers residents to seek resolution regarding concerns with staff, and problem-solves for those unable to take action. We seek reasonable accommodation for a resident's care and quality of life.
The pandemic has caused grief, loss, and trauma for many residents, and your presence can make a difference in the lives of these remarkable people.
If you have a few hours a week to spare and a desire to make a difference, then our program is for you!
We offer a flexible schedule, mileage reimbursement, appreciation events, and a great team atmosphere.
Our next required 36-hour certification training is scheduled for April 14, 17, 21, 24, 2023.
We follow strict infection control guidelines with our resident visits, and do not visit residents in LTC homes experiencing a Covid-19 outbreak.
We hope to hear from you and thanks for your time.

About WA State Long Term Care Ombudsman Program - SW Region
201 NE 73rd St Ste 201, Vancouver, WA 98665, US
The Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program helps improve the quality of life for people living in residential settings such as skilled nursing homes, assisted living homes, and adult family homes.
The SW WA Long Term Care Ombudsman Program works with residents and their representatives in over 355 adult family homes, 38 assisted living homes, and 13 skilled nursing homes. Currently, 26 volunteers donate numerous hours to assist residents through education of their rights, investigation of their concerns, and possible mediation of their potential complaints with facility staff. We are low-level problem-solvers that seek to resolve issues before they turn into potentially costly licensor investigations.
We are always looking for compassionate and empathetic individuals to join our team!
