Reablement webinar recording
There is growing evidence that reablement - services aim to help people recover skills and confidence to live at home and maximise their independence - can help people recover from leaving hospital quicker and reduce pressures on the NHS. According to SCIE’s guide for NICE on intermediate care, including reablement
more than 9 out of 10 people are either maintaining or improving their level of independence while using the service.
This webinar, from SCIE and the British Red Cross, from February 2019, addressed:
- The latest evidence of what works in reablement
- Examples of leading practice, including from the British Red Cross
- Examples of how to commission excellent reablement
- Lessons on how to train and develop staff.
With pressures growing on social care and the NHS, reablement must be part of the solution. Earlier this year the DHSC as part of its announcement on social care winter pressures funding, identified reablement as a priority area for funding.
Good reablement services require:
- Highly skilled and well trained staff
- Strength-based and person centred practice
- A single point of access into reablement teams
- An agreed multidisciplinary team composition in which staff are able to work flexibly across services
- Effective systems leadership.
