Regions Hospital Volunteer Services


Hi, my name is Paige and I have been
volunteering in the Emergency Department at Regions for two years now. I volunteer because I know that everyone usually
has an experience at the hospital and it’s generally pretty stressful so if you can be
that person that reduces stress by just a little bit it’s very rewarding and people
really appreciate it. I really enjoy volunteering here because you
learn so much about medicine in general, especially if you’re interested in health careers. Other than that, I would recommend it just
to anybody because you figure out, especially being in the Emergency Department, you figure
out how the ED works and what the process is that the patient goes through. It really helps you be a better patient yourself
and help others. Hi, this is Joan I work at the employee
health and I’m a volunteer for four years. What I’ve enjoyed most about volunteering
is that I get to be with other people. I had a stroke and I have a hard time with
what I’m doing so when I come here I can visit other people. My name is Ira and I have been volunteering
with Jackson at Regions Hospital for about thirteen months now. We are in the pet therapy program. I volunteer at Regions for several reasons,
some of which are personal having to do with my family. My wife has been a cancer patient at Regions
for about 8 years now. She has received wonderful treatment here. My daughter works at Regions as a physicians
assistant, hospitalist. I volunteer here kind of to make my contribution
to Regions. The thing that I enjoy most about volunteering
here is the pleasure that Jackson brings to the patients and the staff as we make our
rotations and visit patients in various areas of the hospital. Visits with Jackson really brighten the day
of many of the patients, most of the patients, and staff as well. My name is Tyffani and I volunteer at the
trauma unit and I’ve been volunteering for about three months. I volunteer at Regions because I really like
helping people and I like meeting new people as well as seeing the different kinds of people
that come in and out of the unit. What I enjoy most about volunteering here
is, mainly the reason why I volunteer, so I enjoy seeing the people working with the
staff members here since everyone is so friendly. Hi, I’m Elise and I volunteer in the Alzheimer’s
Research Center. I have been doing so probably on and off for
5 and a half months starting last summer. Why I volunteer, I think it kind of goes with
why a lot of people want to do so, you can directly see what kind of impact you have,
you are a part of something that not only continues something, but it improves upon
something because in that aspect I’m contributing to current research and it really matters
a lot not only to me because my grandmother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s but
with all of the millions of other people who are currently battling memory loss right now. I like volunteering at Regions and I actually
also work here, so I just keep coming back. Everyone here is so warm and welcoming and
I just enjoy the fact that everyone wants to make someone else’s day better here.
