Driving Miss Daisy Driver of the Month January 2018
Sue Whitehead nominated by Alana Laws from Driving Miss Daisy Redwood.
Sue drives a regular client Erin, who uses the Wheelchair Accessible vehicle to get out and about doing the things she loves. Erin prefers to use Driving Miss Daisy because we are safe and reliable and she knows she will not be left alone at night in isolated places waiting to be picked up.
We had an incident recently where Erin needed to urgently go to her Doctor, so we juggled things around to get her there. Once there she was urgently referred to the eye clinic. In Erin’s own words “Sue was just amazing, she calmed me down, made sure I got something to eat and settled me at home until it was time to come back to take me to the hospital, she just makes everything so easy and she knows when I am upset and need reassurance”
Sue went and collected Erin to take her back to the hospital for her appointment and collected her three hours later after her surgery. She made sure that she was settled for the night with everything that she needed before leaving.
Congratulations Sue, what a fantastic example of a Daisy Driver going the extra mile.
