IFN COMMUNITY CARE TEAM

IFN's Community Care Team is currently in the planning phase as we await appropriate approvals from IFN Leadership to proceed:

  • Initially discussed at a Women’s Advocacy Committee (WAC) meeting and presented to the IFN community in 2018 as the IFN Visitation Team, the current IFN Community Care Team project is a collaborative effort of the WAC and the IFN Health Committee. All others are welcome!

  • New Care Team members are asked to participate in a Virtual Care Team Training to prepare them to be present and responsive to IFN members for friendly check-in phone calls during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • The purpose of Training will be to:
    • Screen interested Care Team members
    • Foster Team Building and mutual support
    • Prepare Care Team Members to make caring phone calls during COVID-19
    • Have a better understanding of what a person may be going through
    • Be a good listener and respond with empathy
    • Understand and honor confidentiality and privacy
    • Understand when to ask the person’s permission to make a referral to the Imam, or Nurse for follow-up when needed
    • Discuss suggested length of time and suggested formats for calls including asking permission to end calls with prayer
    • Emphasize that the purpose of this Care Team is that our efforts may be pleasing to Allah
  • Once the COVID-19 Restrictions have been lifted, it is our hope that this Team will continue to serve the community by providing Mosque Community facilitated friendly calls and occasional visits to the sick, the homebound and others experiencing difficult times. Team members may also decide to participate in occasional transportation to Medical Appointments and/or to provide occasional meals during situations when other IFN members are in need.

If you are an IFN member interested in being part of the Community Care Team, and have not already been contacted, please contact Sadia or Nancy by Email with “IFN Care Team” in the subject line at: sadiathiryayi@gmail.com or nromanchek@gmail.com
