Maximising the potential of reablement
The required culture change
Everybody involved in planning, referring to and providing reablement is expected to operate differently than in the traditional context of home care.
- Reablement is not a bolt-on service: it must be integrated within the context of local support services including health, housing and social care. This requires everyone involved to work in partnership from the scoping and planning stages of a new service to referrals and delivery of individual support plans.
In this section we explore:
- the culture change required among those planning and referring to reablement services
- the culture change required among those managing and delivering reablement.
