Is reablement for you?
Reablement services are for you if you are over 18 years old and have a disability or if you are frail or recovering from an illness or injury. If you are referred to the reablement service, a member of the reablement team will visit you in your home, assess your abilities and needs and agree realistic goals. Over the next few days or weeks you will be supported by trained reablement staff to re-build confidence, regain physical function, re-learn skills and if necessary learn different ways of engaging in meaningful daily tasks.
What happens if you are referred?
Reablement is a short term service. As you progress and following a review the service is usually reduced in intensity which means that the number of calls you receive or the time that the support workers are with you will decrease as your independence is restored. The support plan is written with you in accordance with your preferred lifestyle and the goals you wish to aim for.
