If you have had an illness, accident, just come home from hospital or are becoming frail, you might find it difficult to look after yourself.

Reablement is a short period of intensive support in your home. We will work with you to help you regain old skills, or develop new ones. In most cases, this is all you need to regain your independence and be able to carry on living in your own home.

Reablement allows more time for assessment and recovery. It also provides help to you and your family as you consider your specific care needs and plan for the future.

You can find more information about the services we have to offer from Tricuro Services.

Who is eligible

We offer the service to all adults if you are finding it difficult to manage your personal care or daily living needs due to frailty, following an illness or fall, or after a stay in hospital

How reablement can help

Our staff will visit you at home to find out what you need to be able to live more independently. We will then arrange support in your home to help you regain confidence and ability in carrying out daily living tasks, such as:

  • dressing and getting into and out of bed
  • washing and shaving
  • managing the toilet
  • eating and drinking

The amount of help needed varies with each person and their circumstances. You might need only a few visits a week or several visits a day. Over a period of up to six weeks, the amount of help you need should reduce quickly, as your confidence and ability improves.

After reablement

At the end of a period of reablement, most people can live independently at home. However, if you need longer-term care and support, we will discuss with you how best to manage this and whether you will be eligible for any financial support.

We are have a Duty of Candour, as set out in Regulation 20 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) - Regulations 2014.
