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.
Senior Services Associates, Inc. is a non-profit agency dedicated to sustaining and improving the quality of life for mature adults, persons with disabilities and their caregivers by providing access to the social services they need. We are dedicated to preserving their independence, promoting mental and physical well-being, and protecting their rights and dignity.
Senior Service Associates, Inc. has positions available for our volunteer Ombudsman Program. The word "ombudsman" is a Swedish term meaning "citizen’s advocate," and your top priority after being properly trained, would be to advocate, empower, represent and intervene on behalf of residents residing in short or long term care facilities. By being the eyes and ears of the Ombudsman Program, you would visit assisted livings and long term care nursing facilities in Kane County. You would listen to resident’s voice the concerns they may be having during their stay and report those concerns to the Volunteer Ombudsman coordinator who will guide you on how to handle the situation.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Ombudsman, please contact Tina Dolan at 630-897-4035 or email@example.com for more information.
