“One thing is for certain, you get so much more out than you put in”
“Maureen retired in 2012 to look after her Mother who was ill. She’d already had a lot of contact with Peace Hospice Care because before she retired she had worked as a Hospice at Home nurse for Ian Rennie (later called Rennie Grove) and at the hospitals in Hemel Hempstead and Watford.
Speaking about her experience, Maureen said: “After my Mother died I got in contact with the Hospice to volunteer as part of the Herts Neighbours team. I’ve supported patients in their own homes as well as taking them to clinics and hospital appointments. I’ve also seen what a great help it is for relatives – to give them a much needed break but knowing their loved ones are safe and cared for. I’ve got a lot out of being a Herts Neighbour – it’s given me the opportunity to give something back. One thing is for certain, you get so much more out than you put in, it’s very rewarding.” “
