NEXT Community Advisory Committee New Member Training
To Be Determined
You MUST fill out a Volunteer Application and submit to your County Office or the AAA prior to the date of the training. Individuals participating in the training will receive confirmation of training time.
Applications can be mailed to Jasmine Wilson @ Albemarle Commission or faxed to (252) 426-8482
The very presence of informed, concerned citizens, in and around facilities, can make a critical difference and provide a force to ensure quality care for persons in long-term care facilities.
Community Advisory Committees are made up of volunteers who are passionate about protecting the rights of individuals residing in long-term care facilities in their communities. Members come from various backgrounds and do not necessarily have a “professional” insight into long-term care.
Applicants are required to complete 36 hours of training and must be designated by the state office prior to assuming their duties. Additionally, each volunteer is required to have 18 hours per year of continuing education, which is partially fulfilled by mandatory quarterly trainings. Volunteers are expected to visit facilities in their counties with the CAC group as well as individually to provide advocacy to residents.
