Volunteer for the Ombudsman Program

What kinds of volunteer opportunities are available?

We are looking for people to become volunteer Ombudsmen in Onondaga, Cayuga, Oswego, and Cortland counties.

Ombudsmen are trained and certified volunteer advocates who are passionate about the well-being of people living in nursing homes or adult care facilities. They can help resolve complaints, provide information about the rights of people in long-term care facilities, and they advocate on behalf of those individuals for high standards of quality care.

We have an Ombudsman training coming up on September 20th, 21st, 26th, and 27th 9:00AM – 4:00PM each day.

If you are interested in becoming an Ombudsman, please contact Jeff Parker at jparker@ariseinc.org.
