Comments Off on Reablement – two films on Social Care TV

If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it! At first, the person may think they’re helpless. It’s a gradual process, but soon they realise they’re doing things for themselves.
Two new films have been launched on Social Care TV, which show how short, intensive support at home or in dedicated units, can help people learn (or re-learn) skills for everyday tasks. Reablement supports people to regain independence and manage alone at home with little or no support. Reablement can lead to earlier hospital discharge and reduced need for long-term support. As a result, investment in reablement can yield significant cost savings for health and social services.

These services can have other benefits for individuals and their carers. Family members can see the value that reablement brings and they may need to spend less time providing care; the person who receives reablement support can also start having a social life again, which is important to avoid isolation and loneliness.
