Nursing Home Residents Need You: Become an Ombudsman Volunteer Today with KEDDO

Ombudsman Volunteer Training scheduled for June 13-14, 2019 at the Patrick Lynch Public Library located at 206 S Mckenna St., Poteau, OK from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm.

Ombudsman Volunteers are committed to improving and enriching the lives of residents in Nursing Homes, Residential Care and Assisted Living Facilities.

An Ombudsman is an advocate for residents.

 An Ombudsman provides information about how to find a facility and what to do to get quality care. They are trained to resolve problems.

The Ombudsman Program is looking for special people to visit and advocate for long-term care residents.

Most residents just need a friendly face to listen and convey to them that someone cares.

An Ombudsman can work to resolve any concerns or problems residents may have within the facility.

The Ombudsman Volunteer is a person who cares enough to want to make a difference in the resident’s life and will work with the facility to resolve their concerns.

If your church or organization has a nursing home ministry, this FREE TRAINING would also be informative and helpful for your volunteers and all are welcome to attend.

The Volunteer Training provides information and training in skills such as problem solving and communication, information about regulations, the processes of aging and long-term care facilities.

Volunteers are needed in the following counties: Choctaw, Haskell, Latimer, LeFlore, Pittsburg, Pushmataha and McCurtain.

Volunteer training is conducted in your local community.
