The Ventura County Ombudsman Program is seeking a few good people to join our team. We believe that all elderly long term care residents deserve ready access to someone who cares and is trained and certified to act on their behalf.

Sixty percent of our frail elderly in nursing homes have no one -- no family or friends who ever visit or check up on them. The Ombudsman volunteer might be the only extended family or friend they have for the rest of their lives.

Becoming a State Certified Ombudsman Volunteer is easy because you will receive initial training from veteran staff and experienced volunteer Ombudsmen, followed by on the job training. And to keep your skills honed, you will be provided continuing education on a regular basis to assist you in your role as an advocate. Ombudsman staff provide ongoing support to you, as you become the trusted ally and friend of the residents.

If you want to make a difference that really counts, please call or email the Ventura County Ombudsman Program, the only program that exists solely to serve our frail elderly in long term care facilities.

As our population ages, society is turning more of its attention to meeting the growing needs of our senior population. Call Vicky Odle 656-1986 for details.
