Would you like to be an advocate for senior citizens who are living in long term care facilities? This is a State of Oregon volunteer program designed to assist the Deputy Ombudsmen in Salem Oregon in investigating and monitoring complaints of seniors living in long term care. There are 5 days of training involved in this volunteer position. You will be trained to Educate, Investigate and Advocate; you will learn to be a “problem solver”. You will be expected to spend at least 16 hours a month as a Certified Ombudsman assisting seniors. This is a good way to give back to the community.
