“I’m a happy person, and I want my worker to be happy and upbeat!”

The Oban day and overnight responder service provide an effective and efficient way to respond to known risks that occur on an unplanned basis, for example falls and other accidents. As well as this the service also provides planned supports. The responder approach ensures that people remain safe and well in their own home, whilst reducing incidences of ambulance call-outs and hospital admissions. The responder approach is also more enabling as it removes – for some people – the requirement to rely on a sleepover service or 2:1 supports, by moving through a planned and risk-managed process towards greater independence and positive outcomes.

The responder service has an impact on the emergency and community services and having a team of well trained and responsible staff in this service reassures the people we support that someone is always on hand, which allows many individuals to feel safe at home. We look forward to helping this service grow, develop and make positive changes for the people we support.
