Recruiting Advocates for State Long-Term Care Ombudsman The Volunteer Ombudsman Program is currently accepting new volunteer applications in Fort Dodge and Webster County. Volunteer Ombudsmen are trained, certified volunteers who visit one local long-term care facility to advocate for residents' rights. This includes visiting residents about their quality of care and quality of life in the facility and seeking to resolve any of their concerns in cooperation with the facility. This unique and rewarding opportunity requires a minimum commitment of three hours per month for one year. Interested individuals should have a friendly disposition, demonstrate active listening skills and collaborative problem solving skills; and have a strong appreciation for older Iowas and Iowans with disabilities. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
