Programme 2

The Art of Reablement  |  2 Day Training Programme

The Art of Reablement is designed to equip today’s Re-ablement Assistant with approaches and strategies for their day to day role.

With demand for health and social care services increasing significantly over the coming decades, local authorities in line with the cross Government Putting People First Concordats are investing in prevention, early intervention, reablement and personalised services to reduce pressure on longer term services.

Reablement is key to reducing dependency and inefficiency within health and social care services, whilst maximising independence and longer term benefits for people to remain self caring in their own homes (Newbronner et al 2007)

The challenge for most is to change a paternalistic culture and support staff to acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities to reable individuals in a way that is personal and meets their own self care outcomes.

Designed and Authored by Reablement UK , The Art of Reablement is a 2 Day programme that meets this challenge.and is being used across the UK to ensure reablement success.

Delivered over 2 day sessions, including 1O core modules:-

  • Why Reable?
  • The Multidisciplinary Team

  • The Person and Long Term Conditions
  • Therapeutic Relationships
  • Therapeutic Skills – a must have for Reablement!
