Long-Term Care Ombuds - Snohomish County

Do you have a passion for helping others in your community? As a certified Ombudsman in Snohomish County, you will advocate for residents in licensed long-term care settings such as nursing homes, adult family homes and assisted living facilities. You will be trained to receive complaints and resolve problems in situations involving quality of care, transfer and discharge, abuse and other aspects of resident dignity and rights. You will work to ensure that residents in these facilities receive good quality of life and care by providing information about their rights, working to resolve problems on behalf of residents, monitoring the enforcement of the laws by DSHS, and advocating for improvements in the long-term care system. An online training program (36 hours) will be provided to prepare you for this amazing work (additional training will be offered). There are opportunities for in-person as well as virtual advocacy following all current, state-mandated guidelines.
