Older adults home treatment team (OAHTT)

The older adults home treatment team (OAHTT) is a community based treatment service, which provides intensive support for service users who are in a mental health crisis, and their carers. The OAHTT provides an alternative to hospital admission or facilitates early discharge from hospital.

Members of the OAHTT will visit service users up to twice a day in their home gradually reducing to once or twice a week, for a short time period, to help re-establish them back into their surroundings and community.

The OAHTT can:

  • monitor medication compliance, mental state and social situation
  • assess activities of daily living
  • feedback information to appropriate involved others.
