Become an Advocate for Residents in Long-Term Care Facilities
The Long-Term Care (LTC) Ombudsman Program recruits and trains caring Volunteers to serve as advocates for seniors who are often alone and forgotten.
Volunteers must be over the age of eighteen, complete a written application, submit to a background check, TB test, complete 36 hours of training with an additional 10 hours of field training with a mentor and not have worked in a long-term care facility within the past year. Volunteers are certified by the State Ombudsman following completion of all required training and may request mileage reimbursement. Volunteers are asked to commit to one year with the program.
Through our state-certified comprehensive training, you will be prepared to protect and advocate for Orange and Riverside County’s long-term care residents. Volunteers are an integral part of this program.
We are in need of Ombudsmen who are bilingual in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean, Farsi or Tagalog.
