Relief Support Practitioner – Day and Overnight Response – Dunoon
Rate of Pay: £9.30 - £9.80 an hour
At Carr Gomm, we appreciate how difficult the current climate is for everyone. Please be assured that the health and safety of people supported and our staff is a priority for us. As a member of our team, you can expect:
- Access to full PPE and hand sanitiser (gloves, aprons, masks, visors, and goggles) when appropriate.
- Full training in the effective use of PPE, following agreed guidance issued by Health Protection Scotland.
The 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. 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.
