Help protect and advocate for nursing home residents as a JF&CS Long-Term Care Ombudsman.
Ombudsmen protect and advocate for nursing home residents by listening to their concerns, protecting their rights, working to resolve problems, and restoring dignity to their lives.
This program is a free service provided to nursing home residents and their families in the suburban areas west of Boston including Belmont, Brookline, Needham, Newton, Waltham, Watertown, Wellesley, and Weston.
We are looking for a responsible, compassionate Ombudsman to attend a training provided by the state (three consecutive weekdays), visit residents weekly, investigate/report complaints, file reports, and attend a monthly in-service meeting.
The schedule is flexible and involves a time commitment of 10-12 hours/month. The ideal candidate will have good people skills, common sense, and a desire to advocate for seniors.
