What is Reablement
Reablement plays a major part in reshaping the future of care and support – helping people to live longer, healthier and more independent lives in their own homes.
It is a little different from the traditional residential care associated with care work. We support people to do things for themselves again, by maintaining and improving independence enabling more fulfilled lives in their own homes.
