Ombudsmen help resolve issues in long-term care facilities

Hampton Roads, Va. – (Jan. 10, 2013 ) – Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is seeking caring men and women with good communication skills to serve as volunteer ombudsmen to help resolve complaints and mediate issues on behalf of patients and residents of nursing homes and assisted-living facilities.

February 11 is the deadline to sign up for the next round of free training sessions, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 14, 15, and 18 at the main offices of Senior Services in the Interstate Corporate Center, 6350 Center Drive, Building 5, Norfolk.

“Our ombudsmen advocate for better quality of care and quality of life for people in longterm care,” said Willie E. Alston Jr., ombudsman volunteer coordinator at Senior Services, a not-for-profit organization. “We could not accomplish what we do without our volunteers. We have only two paid staff for this work, but we are responsible for 35 nursing homes and 78 assisted-living facilities – that's more than 7,000 beds – throughout South Hampton Roads.” Volunteers are assigned to facilities in their own city.
