Reablement and Outcome-Focussed Community Care

Reablement and taking an enabling approach to community care promotes independence and well-being. There is substantial evidence to support the effectiveness of reablement in reducing the amount of care required and both care workers and the service user benefit from this approach.

This training develops awareness of different approaches to enable independence and develops skills in care planning which support an enabling approach. The training can be designed to focus on documentation used by your organisation which enables the learning to be relevant and applicable. Participants will gain increased knowledge of potential solutions for increasing independence which will include assistive equipment and telecare solutions.

This course is relevant to care workers, care managers, reablement staff and therapy assistants.
