Reablement is about giving people over the age of 18 years the opportunity, motivation and confidence to relearn / regain some of the skills they may have lost as a consequence of poor health, disability / impairment or accident and to gain new skills that will help them to develop and maintain their independence.
The service provides a stepping stone of Reablement support for people who are eligible for home care services before a long term home care service is provided.
