Jaime Rose

Jaime Rose has been working for Blair Senior Services, Inc. for over 7 years. She went to school at Shippensburg University and worked in another county for two years in the Ombudsman Program and other programs. She moved back home after being hired at Blair Senior Services for a position in the Aging Waiver Program in April of 2011. In July of 2011, Jaime moved into the Ombudsman Program.
Jaime is the Blair County Long Term Care Ombudsman. In her position, Jaime visits 43 long term care facilities. The Ombudsman visits with residents to determine if their rights are being upheld, needs are met, and concerns have been resolved. “No problem or concern is too small! The Ombudsman will help to resolve the issue,” states Rose.
When asking Jaime what she liked most about her job she stated, “No two days are alike. So it makes it very interesting. I would have to say the best part is the people. The residents I get to meet have lived such diverse lives. Our team of people I work with and our volunteers. They are all so passionate about what we do and are awesome people.”
Jaime said her favorite event is the month of October when they have “Residents Rights Month”. She travels to different facilities and says, “I really like being able to interact with the residents at the facilities. One of my favorite activities to do with them is the resident bingo. It’s so enjoyable seeing them get involved, educated and having fun at the same time.”
Jaime stated that the Ombudsman Program is always in need of volunteers to help with visiting the facilities. “Without our volunteers, this program wouldn’t be so successful. They truly make a difference and I appreciate every one of them” she stated. If you are interested in volunteering for this program, please call 814-296-6336.
