Aims and objectives of service
This is an integrated health and social care service that provides short term, intensive support when a patient is discharged from hospital. Its objective is to help people to recover as quickly as possible from an acute illness and regain their independence to reduce the likelihood of admissions to hospital or long term care. It also supports timely discharge from hospital.
The service is delivered by Occupational Therapists, nurses, mental health nurses, physiotherapists and rehabilitation and social care support staff.
The service provides intensive multi-disciplinary reablement assessment and intervention, including specialist support to people whose primary need is mental health. The team works with people to identify and maximise independence around all aspects of daily living.
The service responds to referrals within a maximum of 24 hours and support can be provided for up to four weeks within a person’s own home - including residential care homes - or within a commissioned residential home bed before a person goes home.
The Reablement Service is delivered in partnership with Nottingham City Council.
