Reablement

ReablementWe have experienced, competent care workers available who can help clients who are undergoing a reablement program.

A reablement program is usually put in place by a local authority or other health organisation to assist individuals who may have experienced one of the following:

  • Overcoming a period of illness
  • Have a temporary disability
  • Recovering from surgery or other form of acute treatment

This therapy of a short term support of up to 8 weeks, has as its objective the aim of increasing independence and overcoming practical and emotional difficulties. It is also designed to help you or your loved one regain your skills and confidence, so you can continue to move around safely and independently at home.

Our care workers will often work under the direction of an Occupation therapist (OT) as they assist you and encourage, often with the aid equipment prescribed by the OT. The goal is to enhance the client’s independence and confidence by assist them to relearn essential tasks, instead of the care worker merely doing the tasks for them.
