Ombudsmen Needed In County

Certified ombudsmen are needed in Chautauqua County. Each week, volunteer ombudsmen visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Ombudsmen resolve complaints, monitor quality-of-life issues and help to preserve the dignity of residents in longterm-care facilities. Caring and compassionate volunteers are needed to make weekly visits to nursing and adult homes.

Training for new volunteer ombudsmen will begin in September. Call now if you would like further information regarding this program. Contact Jennifer Ellman, LTCOP coordinator, at 753-4781 or ellmanj@co.chautauqua.ny.us. Please type “Ombudsman” in the subject line.
