ORGANIZATION: Local Long-term Care Ombudsman

  • 43 people are interested

An Ombudsman Advocate is a volunteer who helps residents living in long-term care facilities and assisted living communities resolve issues and concerns they may have. There is 24 hours of classroom training prior to becoming a certified Ombudsman Advocate. Training subjects include resident rights, Federal, state and local regulations, Medicare and Medicaid, and communication skills.

After completing training, we ask that you visit your assigned facility for at least two hours per week, based on a time convenient for you. Facilities will be in Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge, Washington, and Cass County and we will always try to place you in a facility as close to your home, if possible.
