AIM seeking volunteer ombudsmen

Feb. 10, 2017

CORNING | AIM will host two public forums in February to discuss the agency's volunteer Ombudsman Program.

The first forum is at 9 a.m. Feb. 22, and the second is at 6 p.m. Feb. 24. Both will be held at AIM's Corning office, 271 E. First St.

The Ombudsman Program is a neutral resource for persons who reside in long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. Ombudsmen are volunteers who educate, empower and advocate for residents. They help residents understand and exercise their rights and effectively address concerns that impact their health, safety and quality of life.

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer ombudsman in Steuben or Allegany counties, contact Taryn Roloson at 962-8225, ext. 112,
