A closer look at why volunteering is vital!
Dr. Andrew has been volunteering with the Rotacare Concord for the past 4 months. He recently retired from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Group. When asked what he thought of the Concord Rotacare Clinics, he noted that the other volunteers offered great support. Like many of the other older volunteers, he enjoys discussing how he arrives at decisions with the younger volunteers, many of whom work with him as scribes. He really likes having a scribe to enter information into the health record, look up labs and codes, often serve as a translator, and generally help make each patient interaction go smoothly.
Dr. Andrew expected that his patients would come into the clinic with complex issues that would detract from their care. He has been pleasantly surprised that the clinics patients are very willing to be actively engaged in resolving their health concerns, and together with many local supporting health care providers, the barriers to care for the uninsured are surmountable.
Volunteering provides life-fulfilling rewards for young adults, seniors and retired individuals, and everyone else. However, volunteering is of particular value for young adults who may be deciding on a life-long career choice and those seeking an opportunity to learn new, marketable skills. At Concord RotaCare, three of our young volunteers are leaving us to begin medical school this fall, while another two will start training in physician assistant programs. We currently have three other young volunteers who are attending pre-nursing programs, while five others will be applying for medical school or physician assistant programs. RotaCare continues to provide opportunities for young people to play an important role in the care of patients while they learn the many skills essential to the operation of a busy medical clinic and the language of healthcare.
For seniors and retired adults, Concord RotaCare offers the opportunity for meaningful and engaging work whereby their skills and service are both needed and appreciated. Our retired volunteers include five physicians, two nurses, five pharmacists, one medical translator, and three patient registrars. Volunteering offers these individuals the opportunity to keep their skills current and up-to-date, while they provide an invaluable service to our local community. It is obvious that some of these volunteers like to teach, and there are plenty of young volunteers eager to learn everything they have to offer.
Concord RotaCare values the contributions made by all its senior and retired volunteers, however more volunteers are still needed. We are looking for volunteers that have bilingual language skills, particularly in Spanish, to assist in translating in all areas of the clinic. We are also seeking retired seniors who may be unfamiliar with a clinic setting but willing to do patient registration, data entry, and assisting in triage by taking or scribing vital signs into the patients’ record.
If you are interested or know of someone who may be interested in volunteering for one or more times a month to assist at any of our three Concord clinic locations, we would love to have you join us. You can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Sue Galanti at (925) 429-6409.
