Ombudsman Volunteers

Advocate for those in long-term care

A United Way long-term care ombudsman is a trained volunteer who advocates for quality of life and care for people living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. You’ll work with residents, families and facility staff to help ensure these residents can continue a life of dignity, respect, choice and as much independence as possible.
