Our mission is to improve the quality of life and health of residents living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and those who receive licensed health care or hospice care in the home.
As a Volunteer Ombudsman you will be appointed to a long term care facility that you will visit regularly to advocate on behalf of the residents. You will mediate between the resident and the staff to resolve issues such as neglect, abuse, quality of life, guardianship, POA, dignity, autonomy, etc. Residents who may have no family to watch out for them or may be afraid to speak up for themselves will benefit from your involvement.
