About

Ombudsmen make a difference to residents in long-term care facilities, one person at a time. As friendly visitors to nursing homes, personal care homes, assisted living and other adult care facilities, they build relationships, resolve problems and foster changes that improve residents’ quality of care and quality of life.

Ombudsmen visit on a regular basis, listen to residents’ concerns, educate on residents rights, and encourage and empower residents to self-advocate. For residents unable or unwilling to speak out, ombudsmen may act as advocates.

Ombudsmen attend orientation, 8 hours of training and job shadowing. If you are over 21, have available transportation, communicate effectively, and are genuinely concerned for older adults, you may become an Ombudsman. Continuing education is available.
