  4. 4. Lisa was previously groomed via the internet, travelled to Leeds and was sexually assaulted.  " She now has a GPS loc8tor, which has a geo boundary function which means that if she goes beyond certain safe areas an alarm is sent to the providers Aspirations and they can track where she is on a computer.  The GPS device also has an SOS button, so if Lisa finds herself in a risky situation she can summon assistance without having to make a call.  Lisa had lost a lot of confidence after the assault and was very keen to have the GPS device to increase her security. Due to the added protection this device provides, Lisa is now more independent and moving on to a home that has less staff. In the future she will be able to become even more independent. The GPS device has increased Lisa s confidence. " 2012Tuesday, 10 July 12
  5. 5. Tom who lives in the countryside just outside of Ross-on-Wye, used to need a member of staff to shadow him on a bus travelling into Ross where he would complete some shopping and then go on to visit his girlfriend for a few hours. He occasionally gets confused in finding his way to his girlfriend s house and won t ring or ask for help. Because of this staff have had to shadow him and then support him when he gets lost which is very rare. This requires 1:1 staff which has an effect on shared care for others in the house as a whole. " Now staff can monitor his movement accurately using a Skyguard MySOS and a computer to see his whereabouts in Ross and support him by phone / person if and only when he needs support.  This will increase his independence and reduce the risks Tom faces whilst enabling staff to be used in other areas in the home.
