I will not give the telephone number, address or last name of any other Interfaith Caregiver’s volunteer to a client or a client’s family member.
I will not give a client’s name, address or telephone number to anyone outside of the organization without the client’s permission, except in an emergency (e.g., to call an ambulance or the police).
I will not divulge my conversations with a client and his/her family members, or any related conversations that I hear while in the client’s company to anyone, except to the Interfaith Caregivers’ staff if I have concerns for the client’s well-being.
