What to expect after reablement care

Reablement care is a short-term arrangement that supports a person during their recovery from an illness, accident, or surgery – all within the comfort of home. 

But what happens after reablement care? What happens if needs change and the level of help needs to be adjusted? 

This blog is all about reablement care in Romford, frinton on sea and surrounding areas after the initial arrangement. Learn just how flexible our care services are and how they can be adjusted to support your care needs, whatever they may be.

Understanding reablement care 

The goal of reablement care is to help a person on their journey to recovery as quickly as possible. It provides the necessary support following a recent discharge from a hospital or after an illness so that a person can continue living safely and comfortably at home while still getting their care needs met. 

While in recovery, a person may require additional assistance around the home, such as with cleaning, dressing, washing, preparing meals, and other household tasks. That’s what our compassionate carers are here for. We’ll help you get back on your feet as quickly as possible without unnecessary hospital admissions. 

The service we provide is centred around empowering a person to retain their independence as much as possible, rather than only rely on support from others. We believe your independence is important and are committed to honouring your boundaries and respecting your wishes at all times. 

Reassessing your needs 

When you reach the end of your arranged reablement care, you may discover that you need a longer period of assistance than you initially thought. Although reablement care is intended to be short-term, we understand that needs and preferences change. That’s why there are plenty of options following reablement care to ensure you are still getting support that works for you. 

If you decide you need or would like ongoing support, we’ll reassess your needs and then arrange the level of care provided to best suit you. Because we value transparency, we’ll also pass along any relevant information about the other types of support available. You’ll then be at liberty to transfer to another service or refer yourself back to the original service if necessary.
