Volunteer Long Term Care Ombudsman

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Vermont Long Term Care Ombudsman Project / Vermont Legal Aid

Volunteers needed statewide!

The Vermont Long-Term Care Ombudsman Project protects the health, welfare and rights of people who live in long-term care facilities including nursing homes, residential care homes and assisted living residences.

Our presence helps to improve the quality of life for those who need long-term care services and makes the long-term care system better for those who need it. We resolve individual complaints, educate people about their rights, and advocate for administrative and legislative changes that protect consumer rights and allow seniors to make decisions about where and how they will live.

Volunteer Ombudsmen expand our capacity to address the needs of long-term care residents.

If you become a volunteer ombudsman, you will work under the supervision of paid staff as an advocate for residents of long-term care facilities (nursing homes, residential care homes and assisted living residences.) You will be assigned to facilities in your community and make frequent, unannounced visits.

During these visits, you will respond to resident complaints, report serious problems to supervisors, and provide residents and their families with information that helps improve residents’ quality of life and quality of care.

Volunteer ombudsmen must be committed to promoting and protecting the right of each resident to self determination and a dignified existence.
