Ombudsman and Hospice Worker
I have been an Ombudsman in San Mateo County now for 4 years. It has been interesting and a good chance to learn what assisted living is like and what happens in a memory care home. I have met some wonderful people and have experienced the good and bad of these expensive alternatives. Buyer beware!
In California Ombudsmen have a formal licensed role:
My newest role is as a hospice volunteer at Mission Hospice San Mateo County. I finished the training period and have only just started at the Hospice House in Redwood City, CA. I am sure I will have lots to report in the future.
