Getting to Know You is the First Step in Advocacy

About

Is there a nursing home in your neighborhood or close to where you work? Have you visited?

Up to 60% of nursing home residents have no one who visits them regularly - you can make a difference!

Become an Ombudsman Volunteer for nursing home residents in YOUR neighborhood - 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.

Learn how to advocate for residents in nursing homes - helping them to understand their rights, speak up about their preferences and needs, and partner with ombudsman staff to resolve problems and promote person-centered care. 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.
