If you would like to give your time as a volunteer ombudsman associate, please complete the application below. Applicants are screened by the appropriate regional program and may be asked to submit to a criminal background check. Each regional program trains their volunteers and prepares them to enter nursing facilities as an advocate. Volunteers complete 10 to 14 hours of training (including 2 hours in a nursing facility) and take a simple certification exam. Once certified, volunteers are assigned to a facility.
All fields, except where noted, are required.
