Become a Volunteer Ombudsman for Long Term Care Residents
The Board on Aging and Long Term Care is recruiting volunteers in North Eastern Wisconsin. Volunteer Ombudsmen, come from all walks of life, are carefully screened, trained, and receive ongoing support and supervision from the area Volunteer Coordinator.
Volunteer Ombudsmen make a difference in the lives of nursing home residents by:
- Advocating for residents
- Being a Voice for residents
- Educating residents, families and staff about Residents Rights
- Empowering the residents to speak for themselves
- Listening to the residents
- Acting as the “eyes and ears” of the Regional Ombudsman
Volunteer Ombudsmen are a valuable resource for residents and their efforts are respected.
Volunteer Ombudsmen give their time and energy to help give residents a sense of security. Residents look forward to the Volunteer Ombudsman’s weekly visits. Those weekly visits bring smiles to the faces of residents, and to the faces of the Volunteer Ombudsmen! For more information please call:
