Make a Difference in your Community

Many Baby Boomers have personally experienced the challenges faced when someone they love becomes a resident at a nursing home or assisted living facility. It's a struggle to figure out what services to expect, how to resolve problems, and where to turn when a situation doesn't improve.

Become a long-term care ombudsman volunteer.

You'll help families navigate this learning process and ensure that residents have the quality of life and quality of care they deserve.

As an ombudsman volunteer, you'll provide information about resident rights and quality of care to residents and family members. You'll help residents resolve minor complaints and assist ombudsman staff in resolving complex complaints.

The time commitment is flexible between 3-10 hours per month and the volunteer coordinator will help you decide where to volunteer. You'll receive training, ongoing support, and continuing education.

It's a rewarding role that can make a difference.

AARP Ohio is working with the Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman to achieve the goal of placing one ombudsman volunteer in each of the 964 nursing homes in Ohio. You can make a difference.

Interested? If you would like to become an ombudsman volunteer, please fill out the contact form and we'll send you details and an application packet.
