Reablement: a guide for frontline staff

Report

This guide (produced in 2010) gives an introduction to reablement. Over the previous decade, there had been increasing numbers of reablement services developed by local authorities, often in partnership with the NHS. More and more evidence is showing that reablement can lead to major improvements in the well-being and independence of vulnerable people. However, not all areas yet have reablement services, and reablement services are offered to different groups of people, and work in different ways, in different parts of the country. Many people – including staff, potential service users, and the general public – are still confused about what the term ‘reablement’ actually means.

This guide explains what reablement is all about, what is different about reablement, who provided and funded these services, and the kinds of people who use reablement services, and who work in them.
