This is highly rewarding volunteer work that is sure to keep you active and sharp! It's a great role for someone with 4-hours a week to give. If you are passionate about the aging and their rights and dignity this might be a good fit for you!
Volunteers provide advocacy on behalf of residents who are elderly and disabled, educate staff and families about resident rights, and investigate quality of care concerns. They work independently and use their skills to help improve the lives of the residents through problem resolution. Some issues are simple, like fixing a billing error or a food concern; others can be life changing for a resident, like advocating for better medication procedures, proper personal care with respect, or the right to exercise some personal freedoms. THEIR RIGHTS, YOUR VOICE!
