Advocate as a Volunteer Ombudsman
An ombudsman advocates for quality of life and care for people living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Volunteers must be over 18 and live in Tarrant County. We provide certification training and ongoing support. As part of the Area Agency on Aging, the Ombudsman Program's Mission is to work with residents, families, and facility staff to improve the quality of life of residents in long-term care.
What does an ombudsman do?
- Visits residents (virtual or in-person)
- Offers ideas and options
- Protects resident's rights
