Re-ablement is a free service available to anyone living in Bury who is aged 18 or over and needs support to get back on their feet after a recent stay in hospital or a crisis at home.
It's a short term support service, available for up to six weeks, and its aim is to work with people, supporting them to manage as many everyday tasks as possible on their own and in their own home and ultimately regain their independence.
What sort of things would I get help with?
If you are referred for the re-ablement service, our qualified team will do an assessment and have a detailed conversation with you to find out just what support you need.
It could be that you need a hand preparing or cooking meals, taking a bath, getting dressed, keeping on top of the house-work, taking care of your health or you might need a little moral support to get out and about and take part in social activities again.
Whatever your needs, we'll work with you to tailor a service that's just right for you. During the support period you'll be encouraged to set yourself goals on a weekly basis with the help of our staff and together we'll review your progress.
What happens after six weeks?
As a first time Re-ablement customer, you can access the service free of charge for up to six weeks. Many people will be fully independent after six weeks and will be able to lead a fully independent lifestyle and some people will be independent well before six weeks.
However, if you achieve your best but you still need ongoing support, don't worry, we will help you plan and put in place a continuing package of support that meets your needs.
An ongoingsupportplan will be fully discussed, explained and agreed with you at the time. A financial assessment will be undertaken to determine your contribution to these ongoing costs.
