Reablement services

Community Reablement Service

Reablement is a period of short-term, intensive support that is designed to help you manage independently following a period of illness or a fall, or if you have lost some of the skills you need to maintain your independence. Support is provided in your own home. Following support from the reablement service, many people will not require any further assistance. However, if you do, a care and support plan will be developed to ensure your needs are met.

This service is only available following an assessment of your needs by a social care or health professional.

Mental Health Reablement Service

One in four people may experience mental health issues during their lives. Together with our health partners, the Council offers a Mental Health Reablement Service.The support focuses on coping techniques, promoting social inclusion, building self-esteem and goal setting. This may include providing support with housing, debt, low self-esteem and isolation, accessing social groups or voluntary work.

This service is only available following an assessment of your needs by a social care or health professional.

Following a referral, a member of the team will meet with you to discuss the areas of support required. This can either be with one of our Reablement workers, for up to six weeks, or in one of our self-help groups.
