REABLEMENT

REABLEMENT

At Unicare we provide short term reablement support for up to six weeks to help elderly people live independently at home when leaving hospital or after a long illness. We accept referrals to us by the hospital you are in, your GP or health and social care professional. Prospective clients, their family or representatives can also contact us for an assessment if they feel that some help will boost the confidence and ability to get on with everyday tasks after leaving hospital or after long illness. Our qualified staff will come to your home, or come to see you before you leave hospital, to assess what care needs you may have at home.

Our reablement support covers personal care (washing and dressing); managing your food and drinks; managing to get around your home; managing to access community facilities (using transport, shopping and other services as required..

After you have completed your programme of reablement, we may need to discuss with you the need for longer term support. Whatever the client’s needs and circumstances our reablement support and care options offer the flexibility to choose from a live-in, a night service including sleep-in or waking nights or simply a regular hourly call carer.
