Area Agency on Aging seeking volunteer ombudsmen

The Area Agency on Aging of Southeast Arkansas is currently seeking volunteer ombudsmen who have caring hearts and are willing to listen to those in need. A training workshop will be held Aug. 29 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Area Agency located at 709 E. Eighth Ave.

Volunteer ombudsmen visit nursing and assisted living facilities and can be the eyes and ears for residents who live there.

Those interested should contact Brenda Brown, regional ombudsman, or Rose Garland, volunteer ombudsman coordinator, at 870-534-6311 or 870-543-6327.
