Interlakes Community Caregivers
The Mission of Interlakes Community Caregivers is to provide support services and information for our Neighbors to assist them in their daily lives. It is our goal to fulfill this mission and to also ensure the safety and health of all our Volunteers, Neighbors, staff and the communities we serve – especially during this difficult time of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The Mission of Interlakes Community Caregivers is to support the independence, safety, comfort, and dignity of our adult neighbors. It is our goal to fulfill this mission and to also ensure the safety and health of all our volunteers, Neighbors, staff, and the communities we serve – especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As more people are being vaccinated and public health officials continue to adjust their guidelines, ICCI has adopted the following policies that we ask our volunteers and Neighbors to adhere to until further notice. Please refer to the NH COVID-19 website for more information or reach out to ICCI staffs if you have any questions or concerns or would like more information about the following policies:
COVID-19 Vaccination – We encourage all volunteers to be vaccinated for COVID-19. ICCI will continue to accept requests from Neighbors regardless of their vaccination status.
Face Masks and Hand Washing – Following the federal guidelines for transportation, we request all volunteers and Neighbors to continue to wear face masks while they are in a vehicle together. We also encourage everyone to wash their hands and/or use hand sanitizer as often as possible.
Social Distancing and Seating – While we encourage you to maintain a social distance as much as possible, Neighbors are permitted to ride in the front seat at the discretion of the volunteer and comfort level of the Neighbor.
Sanitize the Vehicle – Volunteers are required to sanitize the inside of the car where it is touched before and after the ride.
COVID-19 Screening – Volunteer Coordinators continue to screen all new Neighbors for COVID symptoms. We also ask volunteers who experience any symptoms to please notify ICCI right away.
Grocery Shopping / Errands / Prescriptions / Personal Appointments – We will continue to offer pick-ups and rides for our Neighbors.
Local and Out of State Appointments – We accept requests for local and long-distance medical appointments.
Friendly Visits – We are accepting friendly visit requests on a case-by-case basis and will depend on our Volunteers’ comfort levels. Social distancing and face mask requirements must be adhered to and we encourage the visits to take place outdoors as much as possible.
As always, please reach out to Rachel Saliba at [email protected] and/or Audrey Wedick [email protected] at as we continue to adapt to the evolving science and data regarding COVID-19. We will work diligently to keep this policy up to date as the guidance from the Governor and CDC changes.
