Resident Rights and Dignity
Ombudsmen volunteers work to make the long-term care system more responsive to individual resident needs.

A Certified Ombudsman is a volunteer observer, listener, detective, communicator and problem-solver who advocates for residents in long-term care facilities. If you are a person with a caring heart who would like to know more about becoming a Certified Ombudsman, click the link below for more information.

You will be trained to identify, investigate and resolve problems and complaints of residents in nursing homes, assisted living or residential care facilities and adult foster care homes. You will work to protect residents' rights and dignity, ensure quality care, and prevent neglect, abuse and other problems.

Training is provided at no cost and a Deputy Ombudsman provides on-going support. Contact us for information about future training sessions.

There is significant need in Klamath County.
