Group Seeking Volunteers To Tackle Long-Term Care Issues
Ombudsman Services of Northern California is looking for volunteers to help the group investigate and resolve complaints from residents in skilled nursing and residential care facilities. The volunteer ombudsmen would assist residents and their families with resident care plans, quality of care issues, and concerns relating to Medicare and Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program. The volunteers also might respond to concerns about elder abuse, neglect or financial exploitation.
