Reablement care is a specialist type of Home Care where workers provide intensive home based care to adults. The carer ensures that the individual is supported in the best possible way to meet their needs and regain independence following a period of illness, disability or a time when confidence may have been lost.
A Reablement worker will give support and assistance that is gradually reduced to allow the individual to regain or develop daily living skills. This encourages the individual to retain their independence and allows them to continue living in their own home. Reablement workers will be working to prevent a situation from getting worse and to support the wellbeing of individuals.
