What is Reablement?

Reablement provides short term support to people living at home who may need support with daily living activities; the aim of the service is to support and encourage people to maintain or regain independence. The service is free and can last for anything from one day up to six weeks. Referral to the service is made from an acute hospital, community hospital or council team in BCP or Dorset.

The Reablement Team will work with individuals to create person centred goal plans, working with other professionals where required, such as GPs, community nurses, rehabilitation teams, occupational and physiotherapists, to provide maximum opportunities for independent living. The service is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the team receive a comprehensive suite of training courses to enable them to support people with a wide range of needs.
