Ombudsmen - Be the voice for seniors in Ilse of Wight County
**Must not be employed by or have financial interest in long-term care facilities/home health agencies.**
Our goal is to provide the best quality of care and quality of life for seniors receiving long term care. When concerns and/or problems arise that cannot be resolved, residents, family members, and caregivers contact the Ombudsman for assistance.
Senior Services is looking for Ombudsman Volunteers to advocate for those living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Volunteers commit to a minimum of four (4) hours per week, visiting residents and monitoring conditions to ensure their rights are protected. Training and supervision are provided by the Southampton Roads Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program.
If you care about the elderly residing in Long Term care facilities, you can make a difference! You can stand in the gap for someone who may be afraid to speak for themselves or a friend to someone who is lonely.
For questions, call our Volunteer Engagement Specialist Kelley Russo at 757-222-4522 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
