Thank you for coming to visit.


The Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area needs volunteers to advocate for the residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities in its ten-county, central Texas service area. Volunteers, called Ombudsmen, are specially trained and certified individuals who advocate for quality care in Texas nursing facilities. Ombudsmen provide information to residents and families about their rights; help identify additional resources in or out of the nursing facility; and assist in the resolution of complaints by, or on behalf of, nursing facility residents. Volunteer Ombudsmen receive training about nursing home residents rights and how to handle resident and facility communications. Upon successful completion of training, a state certification is awarded.
