Adult health and social care

Reablement

 

If you've been in hospital or had a period of illness and you need some support to regain living skills and independence to live at home, our reablement service may be able to help you.

We provide short-term support to give you advice and guidance to enable you to complete day-to-day activities safely, so you can do the things that are important to you.

We may provide you with items of equipment or advise you about suitable assistive living technology (telecare) such as pendant alarms, that would enhance your independent living.

How to access the service

You can be referred to us via a hospital team following a stay in hospital.

When you talk to us we'll ask you about the things that are important to you and where you might need to regain your skills to do these things more confidently. From your discussions with us, the service you receive will be tailored to your individual needs.

What happens when the support ends

During your period of reablement we'll talk to you about any ongoing care and support needs you may still have, and refer you to the appropriate services.

You can also find a service on Live Well Barnsley if you'd like to search for support services yourself.

Our reablement service is registered with the Care Quality Commission, which means we have quality inspections. You can read our latest inspection report on the Care Quality Commission website.
