SCIE research briefing 36: reablement: a cost-effective route to better outcomes

One in a series of research briefings about preventive care and support for adults. This briefing focuses on reablement services. It summarises the findings from existing research evidence and covers: the outcomes of reablement; people's views about reablement; funding and organisational implications; costs and cost-effectiveness of reablement. The briefing also looks at whether reducing the need for home care and improving people's independence will improve their overall wellbeing. The briefing reports that good research evidence exists to suggest that reablement improves service outcomes, removing or reducing the need for standard home care. Although studies report a higher cost than traditional home care, they also indicate a strong possibility of longer-term savings. Gaps in the research evidence are also discussed.
