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 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. Volunteers receive training and continuing support.
