Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Trident Area Agency on Aging

  • 351 people are interested

Sixty percent of seniors living in long term care facility have no visitors. Volunteers go to an assigned facility on a regular basis to visit with residents. The Volunteer Ombudsman’s goal is to improve the quality of life for residents in long-term care facilities through communication and visits.

We are looking for volunteers who are able to communicate with vulnerable adults, have a genuine care and concern for older adults, problem-solving skills, empathetic, dependable and exercise good judgment.

Some specific duties include:

  • Visit residents in facilities as assigned 2-4 hours per week (on your own schedule).
  • Empower residents and their families to advocate on behalf of the resident.
  • Provide information about residents’ rights and LTCO services.
  • Report any suspected, alleged, or actual cases of abuse, neglect, or exploitation
  • Maintain confidentiality.
  • Submit reports to the Regional LTCO
  • Participate in ongoing continuing education training
***Volunteers do NOT provide personal services, assist with eating or feeding, provide food or beverages, or any other responsibility that is managed by the facility staff.***

You can diminish the sense of isolation experienced by these seniors, especially those without family. Help make a difference!
