Volunteer Opportunity - Long-Term Care Ombudsman Health Basic Needs The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on June 27, 2016

Investigate and advocate for the rights of residents in long-term care facilities, enhancing their quality of life and promoting their sense of dignity. Each Certified Ombudsman has legislative authority to enter a care facility (Nursing Facility, Residential Care Facility, Assisted Living, or Adult Foster Home) and approach residents and staff in order to fulfill the program's mission of advocating for residents. Ombudsmen respond to all complaints made by, or on behalf of, residents. They serve as impartial fact-finders, problem-solvers and resource brokers. Although Certified Ombudsmen must be professional and fair in the pursuit of their mission, they are first and foremost resident advocates and will approach every problem from this essential perspective.

Certified Ombudsmen are asked to commit to spending a minimum of eighteen hours a month on their Ombudsman responsibilities, including record keeping and support meetings. Volunteers must complete a five-day certification training and then annually attend ten hours of continuing education. A two-year minimum commitment is requested.
