Val Dennison

Val Dennison Good Citizen Award 2012Val is a valuable member of the Renal Unit team at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. She has been volunteering as a friendly visitor for the past 11 years and has contributed over 7,500 hours of service. Dialysis treatments take a number of hours to complete and Val is there to sit and listen to their stories and engage them in conversation to help pass the time. She often helps them during mealtime and gets things they might need such as a snack, or a warm blanket or something to read. One staff member summed up what Val means to the Renal Unit and that was “patients just love her.”
