Otsego County Ombudsman Coordinator Mandy Rogers is planning such a training in conjunction with Chenango and Schoharie counties this summer, to be held at Elm Park United Methodist Church at 401 Chestnut St. in Oneonta. Mandy may be contacted at 432-9041 to register for the training or for more information. The training is not limited to Otsego County residents.
Whether through individual contact with residents or systemic advocacy, ombudsmen make a difference in the lives of residents in long-term care facilities every day. Wouldn’t you like to help make such a difference?
Frances Wright is director of the Otsego County Office for the Aging. ‘Senior Scene’ columns can be found at www.thedailystar.com/seniorscene.
