Volunteers Needed for Robertson County

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 180 long-term care facilities in our 13 county district and we rely very heavily on volunteers. We need volunteers in Robertson County and would greatly appreciate your assistance in spreading the word about our upcoming volunteer certification training by running the following in the public service section of your newspaper. We would appreciate having it run until July 30, 2021.

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 District Ombudsmen, an Ombudsman Assistant, and 23 trained volunteers. Trained, certified Ombudsman volunteers normally 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. Now that Covid restrictions are being lifted, the need for independent, objective observation and reporting is greater than ever.

Mid-Cumberland – HomeThe 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 classroom training.

The next training session will be held August 11th & 12th. Those interested in assisting have until Monday, August 2 to contact the program by sending an email to [email protected] or by calling 615-850-3918.

Also, we’ve added some new local vendors and are switching several vendors out each market to ensure variety and help us keep our market exciting and fresh.

We work tirelessly to try and bring you local vendors with local products. If you are interested in being a vendor, please message me and let me know. Outside vendors are welcome, but priority will be set on local availability, range of products, etc.

On June 14, while at work, FF Palmer was working at his day job at a local small logging company. He was involved in an accident in which he shattered his fibula and fractured his tibia. After GFD responded along with NFD EMS, he was transported via ambulance to Skyline where he underwent surgery the next morning.

Prognosis is good, but he will be out of work for the next 3-4 months per the surgeon while healing and undergoing PT. He and his wife have an adorable little 2 year old boy, and FF Palmer is the sole provider for his family of 3.

As you all know, life and bills don’t cease whether income is coming in or not. Now they have the stress of medical bills as well. There will be a car/truck and Jeep show to raise funds for upcoming medical bills and living expenses.

His employer has been great throughout this process and is helping as much as they can being a small local business.

If you can’t attend would like to give…

donations are welcomed but by no means required. Josh is a great man for those of you that don’t know him. For someone that gives so much of himself to the area, maybe it’s time we return the favor by helping him and his family out through this tough time.
