Resuscitation and in some cases the death of the victim is emotional for the volunteer. Volunteers who were involved, think about this and sometimes like to chat. Therefore HeartsafeLiving has aftercare available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. After each resuscitation each volunteer involved will receive a questionnaire. In response to this questionnaire we will contact you by telephone if necessary.

Sometimes a resuscitation is not successful. Volunteers can be left with a feeling of guilt then. In consultation with the second ambulance or doctor they can seek professional support. The second ambulance can get a serving officer of the Victim Support for a sympathetic ear and practical and emotional support. It is also possible your own GP for this purpose.
