Volunteer to support the Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman and your regional long-term care ombudsman program.
Ombudsman volunteers provide a voice for long-term care consumers. Volunteers visit consumers in their own homes, nursing homes, or assisted living facilities. In nursing homes and assisted living facilities, volunteers observe conditions and care and inform residents about their rights. For consumers who choose to receive care in their own homes, volunteers talk to consumers about their caregivers and services they receive.
