Rosie Page - Volunteer Driver and Sitter

"Sitting with, or driving a terminally ill person may sound depressing – it is not. It is stimulating, humbling, interesting and exhilarating, and a very easy way to help people who are going through a very difficult time.

Over the many years that I have worked as a Volunteer for Herriot, I have enjoyed meeting the great variety of patients and their families; I have learnt from some of them, laughed with many of them, looked forward to seeing them, and felt privileged to be welcomed into their homes as a friend. I have countless warm memories of these encounters. The patients and their carers are always extremely grateful; for my part, I most definitely get more out of it than I put in."
