Guidelines for Volunteers:

Volunteers play an important role in the work of Tredyffrin & Easttown Care. The assistance and support they offer to the Organization and its clients is invaluable and their contributions are part of what make  T&E Care work. The following guidelines have been developed to assist you in serving in this unique function. Offering to volunteer with T&E Care assumes your understanding and agreement with these guidelines.

Confidentiality:

Information you may see or hear can affect the lives and futures of T&E Care clients and their families. Volunteers must respect the privacy of this information and maintain the same in strict confidence.

Relations with T&E Care Clients:

Volunteers are viewed by T&E Care clients as representatives of T&E Care and are perceived by clients as authority figures. When clients raise issues of a personal or controversial nature, volunteers are placed in a difficult position. While working in a volunteer capacity for T & E Care, however, volunteers must refrain from debating, discussing or imposing their opinions on clients on personal or controversial issues.

Special circumstances:

In some instances volunteers may be asked to sign a Confidential Disclosure Agreement substantially in the form set out below.  This is due to the extensive access that the volunteer may have to confidential information and is intended to serve as a reminder of his/her obligation to maintain the confidentiality of this information.  Please note that the directors and officers of T&E Care are required by law to maintain such confidentiality; this is not necessarily the case with volunteers.  Accordingly, when the volunteer has extensive access to confidential information but is not an officer or director, T&E Care may require execution of a Confidential Information Agreement to specify what his/her obligations are with respect to the information received.
