Home Safety Service
The Home Safety Service focuses on promoting all aspects of safety in the homes of older and vulnerable owner occupiers. In addition, working in partnership with the OT department enables delivery of the much valued temporary ramping service.
Temporary Ramp: Kallin, North Uist
Donnie Macdonald, Home Safety Coordinator-
The Occupational Therapy Department in Balivanich contacted Home Safety with an urgent request for temporary ramping on behalf of a married couple, both recently disabled through illness.
The Home Safety service attended two days after receiving the referral and the installation was completed in one day. This work was necessary to enable the couple to be discharged from the hospital.
The OT department expressed their gratitude on behalf of the family, saying “I can`t thank you enough for pulling out all the stops for our clients. The family are so appreciative and they can’t thank you enough”.
