Even during the pandemic, you can become an Ombudsman Volunteer for nursing home residents in YOUR southwest Ohio neighborhood. Instead of in-person visits, ombudsman staff and volunteers are making phone calls to explain residents' rights, help residents to speak up with their questions and concerns, and partner with ombudsman staff to help residents resolve problems.

If you are a good listener and a strong advocate, help give frail and vulnerable residents a voice by joining our program. Trained volunteers are assigned a long term care facility near where they live or work. Volunteers are expected to visit and do other program related activities an average of 1 hr/week.

Up to 60% of nursing home residents have no one who visits them regularly and, possibly, no one who calls them. You can make a difference!

Training can be completed online. contact Linda for more information or apply online at https://www.proseniors.org/long-term-care-ombudsman/volunteer/

(To be eligible for Ombudsman Certification, you must complete all sessions.)
