Personal care homes happy to welcome volunteers back after a year and a half
Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority personal care homes are welcoming back volunteers after almost a year and a half, thanks to the increase in immunized Manitobans and low COVID19 transmission rates.

“We are so pleased to see our volunteers in our care homes once again,” says regional recreational manager, Lori Martin, “Volunteers provide invaluable services and companionship to our care home’s residents and we’re so happy to be able to welcome them back.”

Volunteers provide care homes residents with valuable services that enhance their daily lives such as exercise programs, special events, companionship and even pet therapy. 

Like staff and visitors, volunteers at personal care homes are subject to the same infection and prevention practices including screening for symptoms of and exposure to COVID-19 before entering a health facility. Required personal protective equipment will be provided to volunteers.

Only volunteers who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 will be permitted to attend more than one personal care home.
