Receives, reviews, and resolves complaints made by or on behalf of residents of nursing homes or other long term care facilities. Volunteers perform the bulk of the services provided by the program. After an initial training period devoted to learning the rules and fundamentals, these volunteers, under the direction of a supervisor, visit nursing homes and learn how to become investigators of complaints, problem-solvers, mandated reporters of elder abuse, and most important, advocates.
