The road to recovery following an illness or injury necessitates more than mere physical healing. It calls for a holistic approach that attends to emotional wellbeing and champions independence. Within this transformative landscape, Connected Health’s reablement care services emerge as a beacon, offering dignified and personalised support during this critical transitional phase, with a primary focus on empowering individuals to regain control over their lives.


Understanding Reablement

Reablement transcends the conventional realm of homecare. It stands as a specialised approach meticulously crafted to assist individuals in reclaiming their independence post-illness or injury. The dedicated Connected Health reablement team is armed with specific skills aimed at encouraging individuals to rebuild confidence, reclaim abilities, and rekindle essential skills for independent living.


Holistic Support for Emotional Wellbeing

Recognising the profound emotional impact that illness or injury can have, our reablement teams at Connected Health are not just trained to address the physical aspects of recovery. They are equipped to provide emotional support, assisting individuals in developing robust coping skills. This emotional support is paramount as individuals navigate the array of emotions that may arise during the reablement process, with the ultimate goal of restoring independence and confidence swiftly and effectively.


The Role and Principles of Reablement

Strengths-Based Approach: Reablement care is committed to being strengths-based, providing ongoing care with a person-centred approach.

Wellbeing Promotion: Actively promoting wellbeing is at the core of reablement, striving to maximise independence.

Goal-Oriented Care: Principles include focusing on strengths, supporting potential, identifying personal goals, promoting independence, and encouraging active participation in care planning.


How Long Does Reablement Last?

Reablement services operate on a support-based, short-term assessment model, typically spanning from two to six weeks. The flexible duration allows the reablement team to work closely with individuals for about six weeks, though adjustments can be made if specific goals can be achieved in a shorter time frame.


Reablement Care vs Traditional Rehabilitation

Reablement is a health and social care support service that stands apart by supporting individuals in performing tasks independently. This “doing with” approach differs from traditional home care’s “doing for” model. Reablement focuses on re-establishing daily life skills, promoting goal-oriented care that builds on individual strengths, ultimately fostering greater independence.


Who is Reablement For?

Reablement care is designed for older adults over 65 after a hospital stay, individuals who have experienced illness, injury, or health deterioration, and anyone receiving home care.
