Volunteers Needed to Help Residents of Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities
Help residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities advocate for their rights, resolve conflicts and improve their quality of life. The Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program needs volunteers who can commit a minimum of four hours a week for one year. Volunteers set their own schedules with visits usually occurring between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on weekdays. Volunteers receive training and continuing support.
Call 703-324-5861 or 703-324-5422; TTY 703-449-1186, or visit Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program. Apply now to attend the three-day annual training in September.
