Are you interested in using your time and talents to serve as an advocate for nursing home and adult care facility residents? The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is looking for volunteers to serve as certified Ombudsmen to improve the quality of care and quality of life to residents living in long term care facilities.

The dual focus of quality of care and quality of life enables the volunteers to assure that residents are cared for appropriately.
Volunteers serve as a voice for residents of nursing homes and assisted living centers. Certified Ombudsmen are indispensable in ensuring that all facilities meet mandated, legal standards for every person requiring long term care.
