During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Long Term Care Ombudsman Volunteers are senior advocates who work with residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities. We ask our volunteers to visit their assigned home(s) once per month to meet with residents, educate them as to their rights, and provide advocacy assistance, if needed. Volunteers will file a brief online report following each visit. We offer monthly trainings to learn about valuable resources which may assist our residents.
Volunteers must be over the age of 18 and able to pass a background check. Classroom training is held over two consecutive Saturdays, followed by onsite training at your assigned facility. We offer new volunteer training quarterly. For volunteers living in the Anchorage/Matsu area, training is held at the OLTCO's office in Anchorage, while those living outside of the Anchorage/Matsu area will attend the classroom training via the internet (Skype). Once classroom training is complete, OLTCO staff will come to your community to complete your training with you at your assigned facility. Volunteers are needed statewide.
Go to our website (www.akoltco.org/volunteer) to learn more and to complete an application, or call Kathryn Curry, Volunteer Coordinator at 907/334.2535. We would love to have you join our team of dedicated volunteers! You can make a difference in the life of an elder in YOUR community!
