Long-term Care Ombudsman (Advocate)

You can make a difference during this challenging time by becoming an Ombudsman Associate! 

Volunteer just four hours a month with Ohio’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program.

As an Ombudsman Associate, you are critical to the success of the Ombudsman Program. You will be the first contact most older adults and families will have with the program. We typically visit nursing and assisted living home residents but are limited at this time. So, we are calling residents and their loved ones to check on individuals during the pandemic. However, we hope our volunteers can begin visiting again in the near future as they feel comfortable doing so.

Volunteers will receive 14 hours of training from our regional program and are certified to perform certain duties, including:

·     Providing residents with information about the Program and Resident Rights

·     Assisting with handling uncomplicated complaints

·     Being a voice for those who are unable to make their voice heard

·     Enhancing the quality of life of nursing home residents

We look forward to talking with you!
