Volunteers needed for Wilson County
Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman program advocates for the rights of thousands of residents in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and homes for the aged in Wilson County and 12 additional counties in Middle Tennessee. 

The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is a partner agency with the United Way of Wilson County. 

Ombudsman staff consists of two District Ombudsmen and an Ombudsman Assistant, along with more than 30 trained volunteers. 

Trained, certified Ombudsman volunteers pay regular visits to these facilities where they spend time with residents, monitor conditions, investigate complaints, educate regarding abuse and neglect and protect residents’ rights. 

The program offers mediation, complaint resolution, and public education for residents and their families. 

The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is actively recruiting for volunteers in the Wilson County area. 

Volunteer applicants must pass a background check and attend a 16 hour in-house training. 

The next training session will be held August 12 and 13 in Nashville.  

Those interested in assisting have until July 14 to contact the program by calling (615)452-1687 or sending an email to   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Recently, teachers, students and parents from all over the country submitted pictures of creative classroom projects to the School Outfitters Facebook page to share ideas, showcase creativity and enter the contest. 

Redditt submitted her creative project, “Dr. Seuss’ Oobleck!.”  Her “Dr. Seuss’ Oobleck!” project was drawn from a pool of more than 250 qualified entries. Please view the attached photo for a visual of the project.

“The class was celebrating Dr. Seuss and we had just read the story, “Bartholomew and the Oobleck”. The kids made “Oobleck”, which is essentially, green slime,” said Redditt. “It was the perfect activity to go with the story and the kids loved it!”
