Reablement for care workers e-learning course
Reablement is about helping people regain the ability to look after themselves following illness or injury. This is an important element in the Government’s prevention agenda, which is aimed at keeping people as independent as possible for as long as possible. Reablement is different to traditional home care, so staff need to think and behave differently when they are delivering the service.
