Robert Snyder is our featured Ageless- Remarkable St. Louisan of the day!
Robert Snyder, 79, has spent the past six years since retiring from a successful accounting career advocating for individuals in long-term care communities as volunteer for the VOYCE Ombudsman Program. He visits long-term care communities at least once a week to identify issues, isolate particular areas of concern, and to skillfully resolve any challenges with compassion and respect for those living in the long-term care community.
His knowledge of issues in aging, understanding of his designated long-term care community and passion for others make him an outstanding advocate. Residents have come to rely on him to obtain necessary medical attention, help correct unsafe care conditions and improve their quality of life. Bob also serves on the board of the Mid-East Area Agency on Aging, and chairs the Silver Haired Legislature, which annually advocates for seniors’ needs in Jefferson City.
