Volunteers Needed for Robertson County- The Long Term Care Ombudsman program
The Long Term Care Ombudsman program in middle TN is getting ready for volunteer certification training. Our program provides advocacy for residents in long-term care facilities, which includes nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and homes for the aged. There are over 140 long-term care facilities in our 13 county district and we rely very heavily on volunteers.
Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman program advocates for the rights of thousands of residents in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and homes for the aged in Robertson County and 12 additional counties in Middle TN. The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is a partner agency with the United Way of Robertson County. Ombudsman staff consists of three full-time District Ombudsmen, an Ombudsman Assistant, and 35 trained volunteers. Trained, certified Ombudsman volunteers pay regular visits to these facilities where they spend time with residents, monitor conditions, investigate complaints, educate regarding abuse and neglect and protect residents’ rights. The program offers mediation, complaint resolution, and public education for residents and their families.
The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is actively recruiting for volunteers in the Robertson County area. Volunteer applicants must pass a background check and attend a 16 hour in-house training. The next training session will be held November 6th and 7th in Nashville.
Those interested in assisting have until Monday, October 21 to contact the program by sending an email to email@example.com or by calling 615-850-3918.
Charlie an elderly gentleman said he had not eaten in two days. Our meal site manager went out immediately and drove to the address Charlie had given her which was a small shed in the woods. Charlie opened the door and began to cry because he was so happy someone could help him.
Charlie did have electricity and running water but was dependent on friends to bring him food because he did not drive and had mobility issues. We now bring Charlie meals, and he is gaining strength and so grateful for his meals. In Robertson County you have seniors just like Charlie who need meals, and we are in dire need of volunteers to deliver meals.
It takes about an hour to deliver a route, and the frequency you deliver is up to you. You pick up the meals to deliver between 10-10:30 on weekdays. There are no night or weekend deliveries. Please consider delivering meals. We know Robertson County is a caring community, and we need you. Thank YOU!
