Serving Seniors, Inc. is seeking dedicated and caring people of all ages to provide friendly visits and companionship to residents in Long Term Care and Personal Care Homes within Lackawanna County. As a Visitation Volunteer, one will be helping to improve the quality of life of an older adult. Training provided.
The organization is also in need of volunteers for its Ombudsman (Resident Rights’ Advocate) Program. Volunteer Ombudsmen are community neighbors who are specially trained to help clarify responsibilities and the rights of consumers in long-term living facilities. Anyone who is available a few hours a month, over 18 years of age, concerned about the rights of nursing home and assisted living/personal care home residents, and interested in making a difference in the lives of older adults, may be perfect for the Volunteer Ombudsman Program.
