Getting to Know You is the First Step in Advocacy

About

Up to 60% of nursing home residents have no one who visits them regularly - you can make a difference!

Become an Ombudsman Volunteer for nursing home residents in YOUR neighborhood - explain residents' rights, help residents to speak up with their questions and concerns, and partner with ombudsman staff to help residents resolve problems.

If you are a good listener and a strong advocate, help give frail and vulnerable residents a voice by joining our program. Trained ombudsman volunteers are assigned a long term care facility near where they live or work. Volunteers are expected to visit and do other program related activities an average of 1 hr/week.

Join our training for new volunteer candidates - register now! (To be eligible for Ombudsman Certification, you must attend all sessions.)

For questions or to register, please contact Brenda at (513) 458-5513 or email her at btiersch@proseniors.org.
