About

You can improve the quality of life for residents in nursing homes, assisted living and adult family homes. An ombudsman resolves resident concerns, protects their rights and assures that resident needs are addressed. Ombudsmen also educate residents, families and staff on laws, policies and resident rights. As a certified volunteer LTC ombudsman you will visit residents a minimum of 4 hours a week in their assigned facilities. We cover five counties: Spokane, Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille and Whitman. A 4-day training teaches you all the knowledge and skills to be a certified ombudsman; these are held in Spring and Fall. On-going training is held monthly. If you are a good listener and have compassion to assist others, please call now to schedule an interview. Applicants must pass a criminal history check and cannot have been employed by a long term care facility in the past year.
