Reablement Service (Joint Care Provider Service)

Working with people to regain independence within their own home and community

Sometimes due to an accident, illness, or following a stay in hospital people can struggle with their daily activities or feel unsafe at home.

We believe that for many of these people a short, intensive period of help and support can make a huge difference to their quality of life.

Our Reablement Service supports people to regain their independence so they can remain in their own home and community with a minimum level of support.

The service is available for a period of between one and six weeks based on assessment of need.

The service supports people coming home from hospital, and as part of the Joint Care Provider Service we will work with you by providing you with the extra support which may be needed.

This service allows us to work with you and those who care for you for the specific period of time. During the period, the Joint Care Provider Service will establish what ongoing care/support, if any, is needed. You will be given every opportunity to regain your independence and confidence in any daily activities that you are struggling with.

If you would like to discuss this service with someone, get in touch with us.
