New Jersey Elder Ombudsman Volunteer Advocate Program

The New Jersey Elder Ombudsman Volunteer Advocate Program is seeking volunteers to help promote the health, safety, and welfare of residents age 60 and older who live in nursing homes. Volunteer advocates help protect residents’ rights and ensure quality of care by making regular visits to local nursing homes; they take on a non-adversarial role to help resolve residents’ concerns as close to the bedside as possible.
