About

Up to 60% of nursing home residents have no one to visit them. Volunteers are the eyes and ears of the Long Term-Care Ombudsman Program and are rewarded by knowing that their presence can make a difference in the lives and care of residents. Pro Seniors trains, supervises, and supports volunteer advocates to help residents understand & exercise their rights, and to form those critical connections that make them feel more incontrol of their lives. Volunteer Ombudsmen work closely with Staff Ombudsmen to help residents ask for what they need and want.
