Family Service League (FSL), a Long Island Based non-profit human service organization, is seeking volunteers to train as advocates for our Long Island Seniors living in nursing homes, adult homes, and assisted living facilities throughout Suffolk County. FSL offers initial training classes, ongoing supervision and continuing education for all volunteer candidates. Certified volunteer Ombudsmen visit an assigned long term care home once a week to educate residents and their families as to their rights in the facilities, empower them to speak up for those rights, and advocate for them if needed. This important work allows the residents to have a good quality of life and care, and to live with dignity.
