Reablement UK awarded Development Contract with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

Reablement UK have secured working partnership with Stockton-on-Tees to train 18 staff engaged on a Reablement Pilot Programme across the county.

The initial phase completed in July 2010 and saw Reablement UK working to ensure staff have the necessary knowledge, skills and reablement techniques to safely, confidently and consistently reable individuals within their own homes, in up to 6 weeks.

The challenge is often one of ‘habit centres’ working to reset years of paternalistic front line practice, whilst reassuring staff that they do have transferrable knowledge and skills to build on their new Reablement working practices.

The 18 staff are to be measured through on-going Professional development with the Reablement UK Learner portfolio, this will be used to support and mentor staff as they use reflective practice to build on their knowledge, skills and Reablement techniques.  Linked to the newly formed Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) all front line staff will attain learning credits linked to Reablement.
