The Big Sandy Long-Term Ombudsman Program is seeking volunteers to serve as friendly visitors or certified ombudsman volunteers. An ombudsman is an advocate for residents of nursing homes, personal care homes and family care homes. In addition to regular visits, an ombudsman can provide information and help resolve complaints on behalf of residents. If you would like to be involved or learn more, contact Tara Little at, (800) 737-2723.
