Volunteer Ombudsmen Training

September 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

YOU Can Help Protect resident’s rights, health, and well-being. Be an ombudsman.


Residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities can face abuse, neglect and exploitation. To make matters worse, they often have no one in their corner to stand up for them. Ombudsmen advocate for residents’ rights. They help protect the quality of life and quality of care of anyone who lives in these long-term care facilities. To be a volunteer ombudsman, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have no conflicts of interest
  • Complete certification training
  • Have transportation

Volunteer hours are flexible, and no experience is required. Volunteers receive:

  • Free 36-hour certification course-includes classroom, self-study, and on-site visits
  • Ongoing support
  • On-site experience during a two-month internship
  • Continuing education
