Ombudsman volunteers sought in this area
Ombudsman volunteers are being sought in Northeastern Oklahoma to help residents of long-term care facilities.
An ombudsman is a person who visits with residents and informs them of their rights. Volunteers listen to the questions and concerns residents may have about facility, staff, family or other agencies associated with their care in the facility. They do informal problem solving and support residents and families in solving their own problems. An ombudsman helps to improve the quality of life and raise the standard of care available for the residents.
