The role of carers and families in reablement

The film introduces Jill Hunter who was recently discharged from hospital with limited mobility, following major surgery. Jill lives alone and was determined to return to her independent lifestyle. To enable this, Central Bedfordshire adult social care services commissioned their reablement team to work with Jill. We hear from two community reablement workers about the incredible transition people like Jill can make from initially requiring intensive support to being completely independent. We also hear how crucially important it is for families to ‘buy into' the reablement ethos and contribute to its success. In turn, Emily Holzhausen (Carers UK) describes how reablement teams must respect and involve families, recognising their role as part of the whole support circle.
