The Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency’s Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is currently recruiting volunteers in the Montgomery County area. Applicants must pass a background check and attend a 16 hour in-house training.

The next training session will be held February 12-14 in Nashville. Applicants must register by January 17 by calling 615-452-1687 or emailing tomharrison@mchra.com

 The program advocates for the rights of thousands of residents in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and homes for the aged in Montgomery County and 12 additional counties in Middle Tennessee.  Certified Ombudsman volunteers pay regular visits to these facilities and spend time with residents, monitor conditions, investigate complaints, educate regarding abuse and neglect and protect residents’ rights. The program offers mediation, complaint resolution, and public education for residents and their families.
