Volunteers play an important role at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. They enhance the programs and services we offer and assist staff in providing exceptional Patient and Family Centred Care (PFCC). These dedicated and loyal volunteers provide service in a number of different areas including reception, administration, greeting, patient care areas, and retail sales.
Some comments from volunteers about their experience:
“I feel my role visiting with patients is especially impactful to those who do not have family or friends coming to visit them.”
“I wondered if I would I be able to make a connection with this patient. We played a board game and, through playing, I was able to connect with them. At the end of our visit, they were so happy. I think it made the patient’s day to be able to interact in a fun way with someone their age.”
“All I can say is volunteering is incredibly rewarding and has helped me realize that small actions have a big impact. I have also met some great friends who are passionate about giving back to their community.”
“It feels good to help people. If you’re looking to give back to your community, I encourage you to give volunteering a try.”
