The reablement service aims to maximise independence, allowing people to remain at home safely and for longer, preventing admission to hospital and optimising the quality of life for individual. The service provides tailored support for service users in their own home for up to six weeks.
Dedicated teams work with individuals and carers to agree a plan for the period of reablement and provide support to create an individualised plan.
Every referral into homecare service is screened for reablement potential. There are approximately 800 referrals per four week period into homecare in Glasgow.
The reablement service was established in 2011 with a major review and service development in 2013. Since then it has successfully supported around 40% of service users to leave the service requiring no further home care support. The 60% that do require ongoing support have gained more confidence and independence that their care packages are often reduced to reflect their need- typically by nearly 20%
