Volunteer Advocates for Long Island Seniors Needed

06.28.2017

Family Service League is seeking volunteers to train as advocates for our Long Island Seniors living in nursing homes and long term adult care homes throughout Suffolk County.  A certified Ombudsman is a special volunteer who works with the residents to resolve complaints and concerns.  The goal of the program is to protect the health, safety, welfare and rights of the residents in long term care facilities.  FSL offers initial training classes, ongoing supervision and continuing education for all volunteer candidates.  Volunteer ombudspersons will visit an assigned long term care home once a week to help seniors and their families understand and exercise their rights to quality care and better quality of life.
