Adult social care



If you've been in hospital or had a period of illness and you need some support to regain living skills, confidence 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 help you to live independently.

Our team is made up of an occupational therapist, practitioners and support workers who will provide support and monitor your progress.

You can find more about how we can help in the videos below:

Working with us

A referral can be made by a hospital team following a hospital stay, or from the voluntary and community sector if you've stayed in your own home.

We'll talk to you about the things that are important to you and where you might need to regain your skills to do these things more confidently. The service you receive will be tailored to your individual needs.

What happens when your support is complete

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.
