Be trained to advocate for elderly

By March 25, 2011

Local volunteers are being recruited to serve as advocates for residents of long-term care facilities in Yolo and Sacramento counties. These ombudsmen are trained to help resolve problems and promote the residents’ respect and dignity. Volunteers monitor facilities and investigate complaints of elder abuse and neglect.

Free certification classes begin Monday, May 2, in West Sacramento. To learn more or to volunteer, contact Cheryl Simcox at Ombudsman Services of Northern California, (916) 375-3309 or [email protected] For more information, visit http://www.osnc.net.
