Long Term Care Ombudsman Program

Save to Favorites

Elder Services of Cape Cod & the Islands, Inc

  • 16 people are interested

Volunteers in the Ombudsman Program are trained and certified by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs to act as advocates for nursing/rest home residents. Volunteers make weekly visits to facilities to observe and monitor conditions and offer residents a means and opportunity to voice concerns about their care and treatment. With the resident's permission, the Ombudsman speaks to the appropriate staff member to try and resolve any concerns. Potential volunteers must be pre-approved and CORI'd before training.

* Due to Covid-19, and governmental restrictions/safeguards, we are currently awaiting guidance from the state with regard to program protocols and updated procedures for the 3 day training/certification requirement (for volunteer Ombudsman).

If you are interested in this opportunity, we would be glad to update you with the most recent information. Please contact us.
