Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Opportunity

The Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Program is seeking volunteer advocates in the following jurisdictions; Loudoun County, Fairfax County, Arlington County and the City of Alexandria. They want volunteers who are empathetic, diplomatic, assertive, and skilled communicators who can:

  • Visit local nursing and assisted living facilities
  • Work to protect resident rights and help resolve problems
  • Dedicate four hours/week for one year
  • Conduct visits between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday-Friday
  • Receive ongoing training and support

 

Their next three-day training is scheduled for March 18, 20 and 28, 2019. We have also set aside April 1, 2019 as a “Save the Date” in the event of inclement weather. People that are interested in volunteering for the program can call 703-324-5861, or email NVLTCOP@fairfaxcounty.gov for more information.
