Montco seeking ombudsmen for elderly

Montco seeking ombudsmen for elderly



Montgomery County’s Aging and Adult Services is looking to bolster its Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program.

The program sends volunteer ombudsmen and women to visit residents of nursing homes, personal care homes and assisted-living facilities in the county.

The volunteers make residents aware of their rights, assist them in resolving problems, and help to ensure the quality of their life and care.

Anyone wanting to become a volunteer should attend a Volunteer Ombudsman Information Open House on Thursday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Montgomery County Human Services Center, 1430 DeKalb St. in Norristown.

For more information on the program and upcoming training, volunteers may contact Andrea Murphy at 610-278-5921, or email:
